Australian actress, comedian, and television personality Mary Coustas is best known for her role as the hilarious, loudmouthed, stereotypical second-generation Greek Australian teen ‘Effie’ from the hit comedy show Acropolis Now.
If you were born before the 1990s you’ll know exactly who we’re talking about (and most probably you can hear her voice ringing in your ears). If you are unfortunate enough to have missed the four year television phenomenon that was ‘Effie Stephanidis’, here is a little bit of a taster for you.
It’s easy to forget that Mary, actually, isn’t Effie. Australia’s love for Effie (well, an annoyingly endearing kind of love) is so overwhelming that you truly believe they are one and the same. But there is much more to know about Mary Coustas, and here was have narrowed the list down to just 10 things that you probably never knew about her.
1. She studied drama (no surprise) AND Journalism at Deakin University in Melbourne.
2. Before Acropolis Now shot her to stardom, Mary Coustas starred in the comedy stage show Wogs Out of Work alongside Nick Giannopoulos, George Kapiniaris and Simon Palomares.
3. Coustas became Effie in the hit comedy TV show Acropolis Now.
