An article by Tim Blair in the Bulletin (Dec 2003) confirms that "Karvan’s family emigrated to Australia from Greece".
According to the web-site at
during a recent televison forum on What Women Want Claudia Karvan revealed that her family came from Kythera.
Claudia was born on May 19th 1972, in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.
She has worked in film since she was 14 years of old.
Since the release of the television series, The Secret Life of Us, Claudia has become an Australian televison icon.
Does anyone have any further information about her Kytherian origins?.

27869:I just questioned my mum about this…she is from Karvounades. Definitely not a typical surname from that village… As in the stepfather’s surname was Karvouniares. And Wikipedia doesn’t confirm the Kythera origin. However, I acknowledge the above comment, but it would be interesting to know where he lived in in Kythera in those early years before emigrating to Australia.
