Let’s plunge into nostalgia, remembering our favorite Brazilian TV shows and actors who won our hearts.
Slave Izaura was the first soap opera to be shown in the USSR. Millions of Soviet spectators with bated breath watched the ordeals that befell the unfortunate Izaura. After the huge success of the series, Latin American serials appeared on the television screens of the USSR one after another.
In 1995, the TV series “Tropicanka” was released. The role of the main character Leticia was played by the Brazilian actress and top model Silvia Fifer. In addition to her role in Tropicanka, Sylvia also starred in the TV series Fatal Inheritance, Tower of Babel and The Clone. Silvia is now 61 years old, she is married and has two children. Silvia left her film career more than ten years ago.
Erson Capri, who played Ramiru in Tropicana, still resides in Brazil. He is 68 years old, married and has four children. Erson’s further acting career did not work out.

Susana Vieira played the role of the villainess Branca in In the Name of Love, and this role became one of the best of her career. The actress has many roles, and despite being 77 years old, Susana Vieira continues to appear on television. But the personal life of the actress did not work out.

Giovanna Antonelli starred in the TV series “Tropicanka” and “Family Ties”, but her role in the television series “Clone” brought her greatest popularity. The actress has been married three times. The last marriage with an American businessman broke up because the actress could not move to her husband in the United States, since Giovanna’s ex-husband did not give permission for their common son to move abroad. Now the actress is 43 years old, she has a new life partner, with whom Giovanna is raising two common daughters. However, their marriage is not registered.
