Katerina Karavatou was met by Vasso Laskarakis for the show, The Break, and she talked about her first television experience as well as the difficult collaborations.
“You never forget the first time on TV. Being in the morning zone and suddenly starting and going out for the first time, now that I see it I say “how did I do that?”. Then obviously a defense mechanism is activated and you succeed. I remember everything.
I haven’t presented anything alone or as a duo. I have presented as a group. And I don’t just mean people in front of a show. The teams that work behind these are a pivotal point in how a show will go.
I’ve been on TV for 20 years and things can happen live. Fortunately not things I can access but I have learned many lessons. They have made me more careful and better at what I do. Because television is changing, the way we talk is different and I’m happy. 20 years ago things shouldn’t have been said and I’m glad they can’t be said.
I had two parents who were wonderful, very good and decent people. I have always looked up to them and never wanted to let them down. With work on myself that I did, I go by “don’t do what you don’t want to be done to you”. I want there to be a good atmosphere in a show, I’m depressed if there isn’t.
Television is like our society. There are people with whom you do not have a common code because I think differently. I’ve learned to deal with it.
