Thanasis Veggos was a Greek actor and director. He is known for his performance in comedic films during the 1950s - 1970s.
Original, creative, unmitigated
Thanasis Veggos, thespian, satirist, comedian died of multiple organ failure today in Athens weeks short of his eighty-fourth birthday. Veggos had essayed innumerable roles in films throughout his prolific career which coincided with the post war era. The Greek nation had been delivered to tears of joy with the frenetic antics and satirical portrayal of proletariat struggle. It is the first time I have ever seen most Greek announcers in media choke back tears as they announced his passing. Here was not only a talented entertainer but a man of goodness high integrity and honour. The body of his work was a testament to this. His catch phrase: "my good people" this day takes on archaic significance and meaning. In the last thirty years Veggos had not given an interview claiming that everything there was to divulge he had given and or said in his films. Veggos had satirized every aspect of what is ludicrous in the mundane tasks of a waiter, grocer, abstract painter, bellhop, nephew courier and more. He was always tender and honorable no matter how impoverished. The body of his work speaks of originality, creativity, and unmitigated Lovemarks genius. Repose in peace dear Thanasis Veggos. The God that made you set so many examples and made you give us so much hath called you back to be by his side and to be his"good" angel. Needless to say you are one of the few whose wings are golden. Fare thee well.
