Full Cast & Crew
Nia Vardalos gained fame after her performance as the lead character, Toula Portokalos. Vardalos also wrote the script for the film. Her participation in the film earned her an Academy-Award nomination for best writing, a Golden-Globe nomination for best actress in a motion picture musical or comedy, and a Screen Actors Guild-Award nomination for outstanding performance by the cast of a theatrical motion picture. Michael Constantine portrayed the patriarch of the Portokalos family. You may remember Andrea Martin best as Aunt Voula, Toula's well-meaning but oblivious aunt who offered to make lamb when she found out Ian was vegetarian.
The film received generally positive reviews from critics and, at the 75th Academy Awards , it was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay. Fotoula "Toula" Portokalos is her family's black sheep. Her staunchly proud Greek immigrant parents, Gus and Maria, raised their daughters to follow their cultural traditions of marriage and motherhood. Her older sister Athena met her family's expectations by marrying young to another Greek and becoming, in Toula's words, "a Greek baby-breeding machine". Toula, however, is 30 years old, unmarried, and still lives with her parents. She works at Dancing Zorba's, her family's restaurant in Chicago.
