AMM - Did you actually watch the movie My Big Fat Greek Wedding or you just heard things about it?
Nicholas - I did! We watched it in theatres with my entire family and extended family, there must have been 40 of us. We also had it on vhs and I would fall asleep to it every night, I still have almost all the lines memorized.
AMM - Wow!!! haaa haaaa… Do you compare yourself to the character in this film by the name of Toula? In which way?
Nicholas - Yes, very much so. She was brought up in a very Greek family and kind of got stuck in the restaurant business like I did. She experienced the cultural clash between the “wild” Greeks and a more normal, quiet family.
