Few people know that at the beginning of his career, Vladimir Kyriakides took part in one of the Hollywood films alongside the beauties Daryl Hannah and Peter Gallagher.
The actor was then only 18 years old. The film was titled Summer Lovers and was released in 1982. Santorini was the island where the film was filmed. The beauty of Santorini after the release of the film became known all over the world. The publicity the island received was fantastic.
Vladimir Kyriakides in the film played the role of an angry young man who tried to “throw” Daryl Hannah. He was unrecognizable with his African appearance!
Expected movie scenario. A love triangle, during the couple’s vacation on the beautiful island of the Cyclades, where Vladimiros Kyriakides tries to win the heart of the protagonist and become her lover.

“The film is directed by Randall Kleiser. The guy who made “Blue Lagoon” and “Grease.”“. Great format. My hair was musty. The role had three scenes. The funny thing is the way they called me to tell me about the money. In the period 1980-1981 the average monthly salary ranged from 9,000 to 12,000 drachmas. They ask me what is your cassette? I lost my headphones, and I didn’t even know the term cassette. I say I don’t know, you tell me. They tell me 150,000 drachmas is it good? I went to faint! to reply Yes».
The actor continues his narration in an interview he gave three years ago:
“They chose me For this wool. I was 15 to 18 years old. The police stopped me twice on the street. I knew about the casting, and I was there because I had a relative in the secretariat. So I went, I went in, passed and finally was taken away because of the wool“I was white because of the play I was doing, so when I went to Santorini, I tanned for 15 days, accompanied by a bodyguard. Everything was paid for. Everything. Have a good time.”
