    I have been a fan of yours for over 50 years. You are a terrific actor, dancer & you are so handsome. I can't believe you are 80. Well 80 is the new 40. Wish you all the best.From a Greek-American from NY, who is very proud of you.

    George is 80 years old but looks about 40. Is he a vampire?

    I first saw Kings of the Sun when I was a teenager and I really liked him in that movie, and the way he portrayed Balam. I've just seen the film again just now and am still very impressed. I've also been very surprised at how young looking he is now.

    If this is the closest I'll ever get to meeting you George...then I'm a happy woman! Love your talent!

    I saw George dancing with Nana Mouskouri I knew he was Greek and I love watching him dance so elegant and he is very handsome I am his age and born the same month and I don`t look my age may be because I am Greek too..wish him the best

    Met George Chakiris in England when he was appearing as Mr. Rochester in Jane Eyre. Had always been a fan of his from West Side Story. He is truly a wonderful man and very friendly and considerate towards everyone he meets. Wishing him all the best in all his future endeavors.
