The President of Greece, on Friday, signed the official papers marking the honorary naturalization of the famous American actor and philhellene, Tom Hanks.

The veteran Hollywood star is married to Rita Wilson, who is of Greek descent on her mother Dorothea’s side. Hanks is well-known for his longtime love for Greece, and he and his family spend their summers in the Greek islands.
The iconic American film star has also been among the faithful of the Greek Orthodox Church since he joined the Church when he married his wife in 1988.
