Telis Stallone was born in Agrinio, a small Greek town, and his career in the cinema started when he began working as an assistant director to great filmmakers such as Giorgos Skalenakis and Erricos Andreou. His first appearance as an actor was in Confessions of a Lesbos Honey (1975) which was a major box-office hit in the Greek cinemas, and was directed by Ilias Mylonakos. When the adult industry started developing in Greece in the early 80s, Telis became the greatest male pornstar (after Kostas Gousgounis of course!), working with directors such as Apostolos Tegopoulos and Stratos Markidis.

When the Greek porn industry slumped in 1986, Telis Stallone moved to the US where he made money working outside acting. He returned to Greece in 1997. He took part in major Greek TV series such as Mavros Okeanos (1999). He is currently writing social/political articles for newspapers.
