Actress Nia Vardalos,whose parents are Greek Canadians, is putting her visit to Greece on display.

Vardalos, who is perhaps best known for her leading role in My Big Fat Greek Wedding has been using her Instagram account to exhibit the country’s beauty. Vardalos has posted some 13 pictures in the last three days that depict her and her friends as well as various settings in Greece including local taverns, beaches and what appears to be an island. Each photo is accompanied by the hashtag #VisitGreece.

One of her latest pictures includes critically acclaimed actor Tom Hanks. Hanks is a long-time visitor of the small island of Antiparos located in the Cyclades and he is married to Rita Wilson whose mother was Greek.

Vardalos has used social media to support Greece in the past. Earlier in the summer she had been vocal in her defence of the Greek people, amid stereotypes formed against them.

The actress will be starring in the sequel of My Big Fat Greek Wedding, which is scheduled to hit movie theaters in Spring of 2016.
