Personal Quotes (1)

[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.
