Greco-American actor George Savalas is best remembered for co-starring with his more famous brother, Telly Savalas, on the popular television detective show Kojak between 1973 and 1978. George played Detective Stavros to Telly's Kojak and was billed as Demosthenes in the end credits to avoid confusion with the elder Savalas. George learned his craft in a college drama school and before making it to the small screen, was himself an acting instructor. Savalas got his start on Dick Powell Theater, and went on to guest star on other series. He has appeared in a few films including Ghengis Kahn (1965) and Kelly's Heroes (1970). Savalas has also occasionally appeared in off-Broadway plays.
