Acclaimed Academy Award-winning leading man George Chakiris is still as popular today it seems as he was when he starred opposite Rita Moreno and Natalie Wood in the Oscar-winning “West Side Story.” The handsome businessman, who has become a world renowned jewelry designer calls Los Angeles his home, but he’s always excited to travel throughout the U.S. and Asia to promote his former films or even his George Chakiris Collection.
However, we have confirmed that the Golden Globe-winning star has been invited to the venerable institution the University of Indiana in September for screenings and a Q&A. He’s going to be doing the Q&A over a two-day period of WSS and The Young Girls of Rochefort. The dates are set for Septmeber 5, 6 and 7th, and Highlight Hollywood will keep our readers apprised of the event, and all other events in Hollywood and around the globe that Chakiris is a part of.
When reached for comment, Chakiris said, “It’s a wonderful university and I look forward to it, Tommy.”
