The Durrells, ITV’s new adaptation of Gerald Durrell’s popular book ‘My Family and Other Animals’, has turned out to be such a huge success, that it has already been renewed for a second season. The six-part debut series, written by Men Behaving Badly’s Simon Nye, is based on the celebrated naturalist’s semi-autobiographical tale about growing up on the Greek island of Corfu between 1935 and 1939. Many Greek actors, as well as locals, joined the cast and our team had the chance for an exclusive interview with the famous Greek actor Alexis Georgoulis, who spoke about his experience starring in the famous British series, his relations with his British colleagues, as well as his future plans. Enjoy the interview!
