Jamie Demetriou is 'Stath' - an incompetent Greek-Cypriot lettings agent, working in the family business, Michael & Eagle Lettings in North London. Series 3 of Stath Lets Flats picks up from the shock ending of the triple BAFTA-winning second series, as Stath is faced with rescuing Michael & Eagle and his relationship with Katia, while expecting his first child by Carole. Meanwhile his sister, Sophie, and best friend, Al, deal with the fallout of finally declaring their feelings for each other.
Where do we pick things up at the beginning of season three?
Julian is dead, the business is in debt after he overspent. They've lost the office and relocated to working in Vasos's living room. Stath is so excited to be a dad that he's barely noticed any of this.
How did it feel when you/ the show won three BAFTAs?
Deeply surprised and happy.
Stath is about to become a dad, what can you tell us about that? Is he coping well with the prospect of impending fatherhood? Do you think Stath will be a good father?
Stath has wanted to be a dad since he was born, but has never once looked into what fatherhood entails. Stath will definitely love his child. But he will also definitely be a horrendous father.
The series has a fantastic ensemble cast, along with some brilliant guest stars – what's it like working with everyone and how did Julia, Charlie and David get involved?
Can't believe they were all up for it. They're all comedy royalty. I felt very lucky to have everyone we have in and on the show. I very much include my producer Seb Barwell, director Andrew Gaynord and Exec Ash Atalla in that too.
In your opinion, why do you think Stath and the show are so loved by people?
Hard to say. I just know that I'm very grateful to the ones who do. And hope there are bits for them to enjoy in series 3. Sorry if there aren't!
What was it like writing and filming the series during the pandemic?
Hellish. From start to finish. I didn't sleep for a few months.
What do you have coming up next?
(And I'm in a show called The Afterparty, which is on Apple tv plus next year).
