Hi Ellen,
My mom watches brousko,as well as many others in Greece and Cyprus.I asked her to tell me all about that picture in the show,but as i can see below,u got already your answer,so there is only one last thing to mention.The show is supposed to be a modern adaptation of Romeo and Juliet with a Cretan family on the one side and a Cyprian family,with the background of the story going quite a few years back as well.I'm from Crete,so i know quite well how much some of us Cretans here love the show.Anyway,your show is,as well,awesome,if not even more just awesome!I love u and your show and i hope you have an amazing season! :)

Hi Ellen,

My mom watches brousko all the time she actually dvr's them and watches them over and over. The lady is Helga and she was married to the old man Diamond, she did have twin boys but not with another man with Diamond [the old man] she gave them away but in the next season it will be revealed that the twins are actually his with Helga [Ellen]. By the way your twin boys names are Nektarios and Patroklos...lol..

Love you and your show

Hello Ellen! I am Greek but I don't watch the show. I was really surprised to find out that you were part of the show in that way :) So did the people of the show. The main male character of the show, who's also directing and producing it, said that they brought to him five old pictures of women from the internet and he chose that one because he liked the expressive eyes. They had no idea that it was you! That's really amazing and great that Maria noticed it was you and sent it to you!

I don't know if I can post links here, but here is a Greek site where you can see the actor's tweets to you explaining who that woman is on the show and her role. You can also see the picture of the woman's two sons (twins).

Hi Ellen, well I guess you heard that the picture is the man's ex-wife Helga (a beautiful german woman) who he believed was dead and he now found out she's alive. I'm a greek canadian and I absolutely love your show. I got hooked on Brousko because everyone i knew was watching it and i couldn't make any calls to them between 9:30 pm till 10:30 pm. It's the best soap opera I have watched and when that particular episode happened I couldn't figure out where i've seen that picture lol. you are beautiful inside and out. You actually should visit Greece with Portia. It's the most beautiful place.

Hi Ellen,
It was really funny for us Brousco fans here in Greece to find out that this photo of "Helga" role is actually you. Its been all over the Greek news since yesterday and to think that we are in the middle of elections week.

You're actually top news here in Greece now! :) I wish we could watch your show here too!

As for "Helga" the ex wife, she hasn't appeared on the show yet....only in photo for now. Maybe you should consider paying a visit to Greece and Cyprus where the soap opera is filming. They choose great locations and its mainly filmed in the island of Crete and in Cyprus!

Great oportunity to take advantage of the amazing greek sun if you haven't been here before!!

Keep up the good work and best of luck to everything you do in your life!

Although I have no idea what Ellen is doing there, this is actually a Cypriot show not a Greek show. Cyprus is a little island below Greece. The southern side speaks Greek which is where this soap opera is filmed. Just thought I should mention...

I was born and raised in Toronto, Canada and my parents are both Greek. Since I learned to speak, read and write Greek, I was extra interested to see how Ellen would end up in a Greek soap opera. Although I don't watch Greek soap operas, I think I was just as surprised as Ellen's audience to see her high school photo. I guess anything that ends up on the internet stay on the internet!
