Nia Vardalos Joins Hughesy And Kate

Currently in Australia to promote her new movie My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2, Nia Vardalos stopped by with Hughesy and Kate this afternoon to chat about the Greek culture behind the film and how the sequel came about.

The Canadian-born actress has revealed to Hughesy and Kate that the idea for My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 came about after having a daughter in real life and feeling close resemblances to her own mother. “I’ve had such a good time getting together with the entire original cast.” Nia has said. It’s been 14 years since the release of the first movie and there are pressures on Nia from her mother to write a third movie. “My mum said immediately upon seeing two, “Come on, start writing a third!””

Digging deeper into the Greek culture they were joined on air by Jimmy.
