Mary
Sheyla

Actress

Born in Rio de Janeiro, Mary Sheyla is another example of talent polished  by the group  Nós do Morro, in the slum of Vidigal. It was in the group that she gave her first steps into the art world at the age of seven and she is thankful to them for the way her life turned out to be. “I think I´ll always be part of  Nós do Morro. I thank God for including me in a project so revolutionary and I am very happy to be a part of it”, says the actress.

After standing out in the group, Mary Sheyla started seeing results when Cacá Diegues discovered her in 1998 and included her in the cast of the movie Orfeu do Carnaval. Since then, the art of interpretation gained an even greater dimension in the life of the actress, who began to participate in several productions both in the movies and on TV, but not neglecting the theatre, where she worked in plays by authors such as William Shakespeare, in Midsummer Nights Dream, and Lewis Carroll, in Alice in Wonderland, not to mention many other plays.

On TV, Mary Sheila made her first appearance in the Soap Opera O Campeão, which was on air in 1996 on Band TV, but she started to appear more frequently in the small screen with her participation on two programs that Globo TV presented in the end of the 90´s: Você Decide and Linha Direta. Both shows worked as passport for her to reach higher, and in 1999 the actress premiered in the Soap Opera Suave Veneno, under the direction of Marcos Schechtman, who had directed her in O Campeão. From this point on, to see Mary Sheyla in action turned out to be a constant thing, and between 2001 and 2008, she acted in comedy shows, mini series and soap operas like Brava Gente, A Casa das Sete Mulheres, Cidade dos Homens, Sob Nova Direção, A Diarista, A Lua Me Disse, Desejo Proibido e Dicas de um Sedutor. These are examples of great opportunities which lead her to be directed by names like, Jaime Monjardim, Roberto Talma, Marcos Paulo and Roberto Farias. “Television enchants me, because it is wonderful to have the privilege of being inside peoples houses, be them rich or poor”, says Mary Sheyla, who affirms that acting is like oxygen for her.

Although, if on TV the actress has been consolidating her talent with each new work, in the movies Mary Sheyla brings in her baggage nothing less than a Golden Kikito for best supporting actress, won in the Gramado Festival of  2006, as a result of her magnificent interpretation in the movie Anjos do Sol. “This award was recognition of a work. With it, my career got respect and credibility” says her, with great satisfaction. She was also part of one of the major successes of the last decades in the national movie industry, Cidade de Deus.

About the future, Mary Sheyla knows exactly what she wants. “I want to continue doing what I do
