Thaao Penghlis inspires others to take positive action in their lives through his own enthusiasm and eagerness to meet life's challenges, and he is attracted to people who are adventurous, courageous and independent.Thaao is rather bossy but does not like to be with people that he can boss around too much. Relationships that are built on mutual respect and emotional freedom are ideal for Penghlis.Anyway, I remember at one point dreaming about Thaao Penghlis. You know that feeling when you're with someone, and you can tell they'd rather be anywhere but with you. But I also have dreams where people give me tons of love. Last night and the night before I dreamed about the same friends. Then in the next night, they were totally loving on me. Anyway, I should probably start talking about Thaao Penghlis. I feel like he's an uncle or something...some long lost family friend. Allison Sweeney does that let's-promote-eating-disorders reality TV show. I feel I should write about Tony Di Mera, the same as I write about other soap opera characters....especially since I actually watch the show. I just don't understand the Tony Di Mera storyline. But I guess they're both played by Thaao, so it's okay. That was one of the dumbest soap opera storylines ever. Thaao Penghlis has frequent emotional outbursts due to his fiery temper and emotional impulsiveness.Moon Over Miami (Pilot) 1993 Santa Barbara Micah De Angelis 1992 to 1993 Mission Impossible 1988 Who's the Boss?

Born in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia, Thaao Penghlis is one of four children whose parents immigrated to Sydney from Greece. While studying art history and fashion in New York City he was encouraged to pursue a career in drama by acting coach and theatre director, Milton Katselas. Charles Shaughnessy played Shane Donovan, and he's one of the few actors who's had a very successful career outside of the soap opera. Maybe I'll start having to watch the show regularly again. Following appearances in the films Slow Dancing in the Big City (1978), The Bell Jar (1979), and Altered States (1980), Penghlis landed the role of Victor Cassadine on ABC's General Hospital -- a portrayal so popular that the station reportedly received thousands of letters of complaint following the character's departure.In response, the network attempted to bring Penghlis back, but by that point he had already signed with NBC for Days.He may be best know to fans, however, as Days of our Lives' Count Antony Di Mera.
