Personal Quote:

[on Rodrigo Santoro] He definitely opened some important doors for Brazilian actors in America. Now I'm here, and I see other amazing Brazilian actors growing their careers in USA. My favorite one is Alan Miller! Awesome young actor!! We met in Tropical Paradise (2007), when he was just 17 years old. He also sings and plays many instruments! It's fantastic.


In a period of just one year (2007 to 2008), he achieved stardom with three big success, in cinema, TV and theater: starring in the blockbuster movie Elite Squad (2007) (as Captain Nascimento), playing the villain Olavo in the soap opera Tropical Paradise (2007) and playing the Shakespeare play Hamlet on stage.
