Maria Pinna builds on the successful work of a job that has marked her career so far. When interpreting the villain Regina in the teen soap opera “Cúmplices de Um Resgate”, on SBT, between 2015 and 2016, the actress won a legion of fans across the country. Written by Íris Abravanel, the soap opera cultivated a captive audience that, even today, remembers with nostalgia the teenage stories. “This was certainly a watershed in my career”, says Maria, who has also become a phenomenon on social networks
The actress started investing early in the profession. She did “Wolf Maya Actors School”, from 2008 to 2011, in São Paulo; and then the prestigious film interpretation course with trainer Fatima Toledo, in 2013. Despite hearing some comments that could make her give up her career, she was persistent. “When I was still on a course with Brian Penido, in 2013, rehearsing for the play “Contos de Nelson Rodrigues”, I almost dropped everything. In fact, if it weren’t for Brian’s encouragement, I would have given up. The teachers said that I was only beautiful”, she recalls.
A week before the premiere of the play, she received an the invitation from television to act out in “ Malhação” on Globo TV – in this season the text was still written by Emanuel Jacobina and directed by Leonardo Nogueira. Soon later, she carried on several important works in that company, such as the soap operas ”Cheias de Charme”, “Lado a Lado”, “Joia Rara”, and so on.
It’s such an amazing thing! Maria was fortunate to have the support of her parents. “I have always had my parents on my side. As my family is from art, it is easier to be understood and it is so great”. She is so proud of her father who is a sculptor, as well as her oldest brother who is an advertiser and a director.
Maria is aware of her social role as an actress. “We have to act humanly and honestly not only with people but also with the world. Being accessible also helps. Humanizing is necessary”, she says.
