first_imgComedy actor Jamie Demetriou has said every time he meets lettings branch staff they claim to know a real ‘Stath’, the character he plays in the second series of his ongoing Channel 4 show Stath Lets Flats.The show, which is in its second series and is on Mondays each week at 10pm until mid-September, is rapidly becoming required viewing among agents for its sometimes hysterical and occasionally accurate portrayal of a chaotic branch office.In it Demetriou plays a deeply incompetent Greek-Cypriot North London lettings agent who works for his family’s business Michael and Eagle.32-year-old Demetrious yesterday told London’s Metro newspaper that as a renter he’s been worried about being blacklisted by his real-life counterparts for his poor portrayal of the profession, and finds flat hunting mildly embarrassing when agents recognise him.Stath Lets Flats“I’ve been comforted that, when I occasionally go with friends to flat viewings to pick up titbits, I tend to get a warm response,” he says.“They tend to all know another letting agent who’s like Stath so they take comfort in that — ‘he’s like the idiot that’s in our office.’“But a lot of the time my internal monologue is saying: ‘Mmmm, no, it’s you!”Demetrious has also revealed that fans who have described the comedy as the ‘perfect pre-Brexit comedy about a fractured Britain’ are wrong.“I understand that housing and Brexit interlink in a way that sort of needs flagging up, but I don’t think this is the show to do it. It’s not a satire, it’s a family comedy about a sweet idiot,” he says.Demetrious is also due to feature in the upcoming TV series of Four Wedding and a Funeral and has also appeared in two other comedy series, Fleabag and Alan Partridge.Stath Lets Flats Jamie Demetriou Channel 4 August 28, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
