And that’s why it goes on anyone. It shows that even those who seem calm can do suspicious things, “he observed.

I always think of having ‘out of the box’ ideas, for example, to push those who have never been to the theater. I want to bring text that has not been staged and invite these people to do it. Be it Portugal or Brazil. I’m also investing in my first executive production, seeing the potential for management.

I have done a lot of work, and in different places, in different countries. I’m crazy about different thinking heads from plural geographies. And if I like to question, to challenge, I have to have a lot of cultural luggage. I studied, worked and went in search of it and it makes me a better actor, artist. But I’m not the kind of person who just works. I am a super present dad, I am part of my children’s life. We talk every day. And I like to travel with them, to give them a ‘world’ so that they can see that the world is bigger, with different cultures, with different people, so that they respect this diversity, “he said.

I have a life story like many others, but I am the one who has always fought to win everything, “he said.

“Everything I have is built. I even started contacting work at the age of 9, on vacation from studies, I helped my uncles in the building materials store. Since I was 14, I supported myself. And I always got what I wanted. It’s courageous for me, so I think I’m brave, and I’m still looking for what I believe in. “
