Beloved Greek actor George Vasileiou dies at 67 (photos-videos)

Popular Greek actor George Vasileiou died on Wednesday morning, after battling with cancer for a long period. The 67-year-old actor, who had become a household name playing the role of a tough police officer in a long running successful TV series called “Lampsi”, was a heavy smoker and had come out about his health issues in September urging people to stop smoking.

Shortly after the midnight on Wednesday, Alina Tronaru regretfully stubbed out her last cigarette in a restaurant.

Together with some other friends, the 32-year-old joined a "farewell" party for smokers in a fancy restaurant in downtown Bucharest.

She is not giving up smoking, however, just giving up smoking in public places.
