      Irene Papas

      Irene Papas

      Highest Rated: 94% Z (1969)

      Lowest Rated: 40% Into the Night (1985)

      Birthday: Sep 3, 1926

      Birthplace: Chilimodion, Corynth, Greece

      Irene Papas began her career as a variety performer and started appearing in Greek films in the early 1950s. She made her US debut in "Tribute to a Bad Man" (1955) and established her international reputation with Michael Cacoyannis' "Zorba the Greek" (1965). Her dark, intense features are well suited to tragic roles; she made an indelible impression as the widow of the slain political activist in Costa-Gavras' "Z" (1968).
