Starting his career last year, actor Vicente Alvite is being the darling of the soap opera “Travessia” on Rede Globo. Before debuting as the character Tonho in Gloria Perez’s soap opera, Vicente was part of the children’s series “Uma Escola Fora de Série” and will star in the film “Nos Trilhos da Aventura” alongside comedian Dedé Santana, which will be released later this year.
Very communicative, Vicente studies English and Mandarin at school, and loves sports: judo, swimming and football. Behind the scenes of the soap opera, the protagonist was nicknamed “penguin”, and she even took the nickname to the soap opera. During breaks, she plays “little fight” with actor Chay Suede and interacts with everyone. Drica Moraes, Vicente’s grandmother in the soap opera, is a “vulture” only in character. In real life she is a sweetheart with the boy.
During the recording break, Vicente studies the scenes, does his homework, sings and plays. Check out the interview!
Currently, the soap opera “Travessia” has given much to talk about in the media, following a wave of several successes that has been presented by Rede Globo. How has your opinion been about the progress of the plot and especially the development of your character?
The novel is really cool. And my character, Tonho, will now suffer a little in the soap opera. His father is arrested, the DNA says that the mother is not his mother, he is even taken to a shelter. Tadinho do Tonho.
You were part of the children’s series “Uma Escola Fora de Série” and starred in a film alongside comedian Dedé Santana. What was the biggest difference you found acting in a soap opera?
A very big difference is that the soap opera takes much longer than a movie to record.
About your role in the telenovela “Travessia”, what is your biggest challenge in playing the character Tonho and how do you prepare for the difficult scenes?
The biggest challenge is to concentrate to try to feel what Tonho feels. I have a trainer who helps me. At Globo, all children have.
In addition to never stopping studying and improving your dramaturgy, you have dedicated yourself to the study of other languages, including English. Do you believe that knowing this new language can help you in new jobs? Thinking of an international career?
I still never thought about an international career. Besides English I also study Mandarin. And I think this can help me, yes, to do new work.
You’ve already had the opportunity to work with big names on Brazilian television, such as Drica Moraes and Dedé Santana. What did you learn from them during the recordings and how is your relationship with the cast of Travessia outside the recordings?
They teach me how to act. And outside of recording everyone is really nice and talks and jokes with me.
We know that in life not everything is work and that we also have to have our moments of relaxation. How are the backstage moments of the soap opera, while they are not recording, especially with Chay Suede and Drica Moraes?
They are really cool. Everyone jokes with me, talks. Drica sings with me, she likes me a lot. Chay plays wrestling, he taught me how to draw 3D.
