Oscar-winning actor in Athens for charity screening

Acclaimed British actor Daniel Day-Lewis arrives for a news conference ahead of a special screening of his latest film, "Phantom Thread," in Athens on Thursday. The triple Oscar winner has said that the dark romance that sees him cast as a fastidious dressmaker will be his last film. "I don’t fully understand [the decision] but it came to me with a sense of conviction," he told the press. "I just feel it’s time to explore the world in a different way now." Proceeds from last night’s special screening were donated to Cerebral Palsy Greece, which Day-Lewis has supported since 1989, when he visited the country for the premiere of "My Left Foot," in which he portrays a disabled artist.
