Aristotelis “Telly” Savalas (Αριστοτέλης Σαβάλας‚ in Greek) (January 21, 1924 – January 22, 1994) was a prominent Emmy Award-winning American film and television actor whose career spanned four decades. Undoubtedly Savalas’ most famous role was that of the tough detective Kojak on television. Lt. Theo Kojak was a bald New York City detective who had a fondness for lollipops and whose trademark line was, “Who loves ya, baby?” Reportedly the lollipop gimmick was added in lieu of having the character smoke. Savalas himself was quitting smoking and the lollipops may have been his own trick for defeating his habit.
