"I'm a romantic realist. I knew I would become a star, just as I know some day the bubble will burst."

Aristotelis "Telly" Savalas (January 21, 1922 – January 22, 1994) was an American actor of Greek descent.

His movie and television career spanned more than thirty years, with quite a few iconic roles such as Archer Maggott in The Dirty Dozen and James Bond's Arch-Enemy Ernst Stavro Blofeld in On Her Majesty's Secret Service. His most memorable TV role was undeniably the lollipop-chomping NYPD Lieutenant Theofilides "Theo" Kojak in Kojak.
