Panagiotis (Takis) Miliadis (Greek : Τάκης Μηλιάδης; September 26, 1922 - April 14, 1985) was a Greek actor who is known for his comedic acting roles.



Takis Miliadis was born in Athens, Greece on September 26, 1922, into a theatrical and musical family. As his father, Nikos, was an actor in musical theatre, and his mother, Marika Anthopoulou, was an opera singer, he was intensely exposed to theatrical acting during his childhood. Later, he was characterised as the ‘Maurice Chevalier’ of Greece. He studied theatre with other famous students, such as Kostas Bastias and Dimitris Rontiros. Miliadis married three times, first to Betty Moschona, and then to Sasa Kazeli. Finally, he married Paraskevi Kollis and together they raised a son, Marios Miltiadis.

Miliadis graduated from the University of Athens Medical School. Throughout his career, Miliadis has played roles in films and theatre. During his theatrical career, he earned great reviews from critics. At one point in his life he worked in Germany as a radio presenter, as part of a Greek-language broadcast.

Other than theatricals, films, radio and television broadcasts, he also did many refreshments in the Athens-Piraues time, with several number of reviews. He was one of the only invited hosts in the Sunday television broadcasts on YENED (now ET2) Kyriaki horis sinnefa (Κυριακή χωρίς σύννεφα = Sundays Without Any Clouds), in theatrical sketches and also presented Omiros Athinaios.


On April 12th 1985, Miliadis was involved in a car crash near his home in Ioannina. He survived the incident but he was left fatally wounded and he eventually succumbed to his injuries two days later. [1]

Actor Person who acts in a dramatic or comic production and works in film, television, theatre, or radio

An actor is a person who portrays a character in a performance. The actor performs "in the flesh" in the traditional medium of the theatre or in modern media such as film, radio, and television. The analogous Greek term is ὑποκριτής (hupokritḗs), literally "one who answers". The actor's interpretation of their role—the art of acting—pertains to the role played, whether based on a real person or fictional character. This can also be considered an "actor's role," which was called this due to scrolls being used in the theaters. Interpretation occurs even when the actor is "playing themselves", as in some forms of experimental performance art.
