Pedro Alonso, who stars in the smash hit TV show “La Casa de Papel,” or “Money Heist,” is on a visit to Greece and he seems to love the country.
The actor has been spotted both in Athens last Sunday and on the beautiful island of Milos, and has posted on Instagram expressing his appreciation for Greece as a whole.
Berlin from ‘Money Heist’ in Greece
The Netflix actor has no doubt been received well in Greece, where the show “Money Heist” has been extremely popular and certainly entered the national discussion. Many refer to Alonso as “Berlin,” due to his character’s name on the show.
This was the case when he was spotted in Athens enjoying a classic Greek coffee, a frappe. The actor was seemingly recognized by his waitress at Centrale Cafe, located in downtown Athens, who snapped a photo and posted it on their Instagram account.
“Pedro Alonso, the “bad guy” Berlin from Casa de Papel is in Greece and yesterday was with us at Centrale!” read the Instagram caption from the cafe’s post.
Since last Sunday, it seems the actor has explored more of Greece, ending up on the stunning island of Milos.
Alonso posted an ode to the country on Instagram, with a few snaps showcasing some quintessentially Greek things he saw during his vacation. He also showed how much fun he had on the island by attaching a video of himself at the ancient theater of Milos, where he stood in the middle and took advantage of the good acoustics to recite an excerpt from one of his favorite plays.
He shared a photo of him looking into the picturesque distance while on the island of Milos. The caption of his post about his vacation to Greece seems to give away how much he enjoyed himself.
“Greece ❤️ … How marvellous Greece,” Alonso said in his caption showcasing his vacation.
The rest of his caption referenced the joke he made while in the theater, as he explained to his millions of fans that it is a reference to a play he loves.
“In case anyone is interested in the joke, it’s Rosaura’s monologue in Pedro Calderón de la Barca’s “La vida es sueño”, when she falls off her horse as she arrives in a strange land. I had it page by page, stuck to a wall for at least a couple of years. It is undoubtedly the work of Spanish Golden Age theatre that I love the most,” he wrote, before attaching a translated version of the beautiful prose he recited in the ancient theater of Milos.
“I dream that I am here
of these prisons laden,
and I dream that in another state
more flattering I saw myself.
What is life? A frenzy.
What is life? An illusion,
a shadow, a fiction,
and the greatest good is small:
That all life is a dream,
and dreams are dreams,” finished the Spanish actor from the hit show “La Casa de Papel,” showing just how much he enjoyed his vacation in Greece!
