For several decades, actor Lex Marinos has embodied all that is so-called ethnic on Australian screens, from the comedy Kingswood Country to the intense drama of The Slap. Lex identifies strongly with his Greek heritage, growing up as 'an outsider' in an assimilationist White Australia era. He wonders if his predominantly Greek identity has overshadowed his grandmother's Anglo-Celtic lineage. Celebrating the birth of his granddaughter in a traditionally Greek-Australian family gathering, Lex is aware that the picture is incomplete.
