The desire to become an actress has always been part of the life of Vanessa Machado. However, the fact that she lived in Goiânia, in the state of Goiás, did not help much and made her feel far from making her childhood dream come true. Then, one day, she moved. She began a very successful career as a model in São Paulo and felt that the doors started to open before her. So, she decided to take acting lessons.
Her efforts paid off an she made her debut in great style during the year 2000, when she played the role of Simone, in the soap opera Laços de Família, written by Manoel Carlos. In the plot, Simone was treacherous, and although not exactly a villain, wasn´t someone lovable either.
In 2001, Vanessa´s humorous talent was tested when she played the role of Eugênia, in the mini series O Quinto dos Infernos, a nonsense-humorous mini series written by Carlos Lombardi. “Drama, as well as comedy, present a degree of difficulty. I think that it is more difficult to make people laugh then cry, but I have a close connection to comedy”, says Vanessa.
Today, the actress brings with her the experience of several works on TV, on stage and on the big screen. Experiences that many actors do not have the opportunity to have. “ It is difficult to say which one gives me more pleasure. I like acting. The movies give you more time to prepare; the theatre is a pure and different emotion each day, with an immediate response; TV is dynamic and fun to do, capable of becoming your home and family during the months of work”, assures Vanessa, not hiding the desire to continue acting, no matter if it is on stage, on the big screen or on TV.
