In the beginning, the main idea was just to use the acting classes to make João Vitor Sales, a very naughty boy from Natal / RN, become a quit more quiet. However, at age 11 when he stepped on the stage for the first time, acting as a clown, he soon fell in love with the profession. A short time later, he started acting in the Training Centre and Theatre Research in charitable productions. At 20 years old, he moved to Rio de Janeiro. "I began attending Law School because my family would rather I be a lawyer, but after two years I dropped out of school because I couldn’t be away from the stage” he claims.

In Rio de Janeiro, “The Wonderful City”, João Victor graduated from the prestigious school of theater  “Casa das Artes de Laranjeiras (CAL)”, where some of the most important actors in the country have already attended.  He also made theatrical preparation with the renowned teacher Camila Amado. During this period, he participated in productions such as Os 7 Gatinhos and O Despertar da Primavera, in Tom Jobim Space,  that is a part of the cultural corridor of Rio de Janeiro,  Botanical Garden, and considered as one of the most important theaters of the city. Besides it, also in Rio, he discovered another passion: riding motorcycles. "Traffic is very busy and it took me a long time to get to my appointments.  It was a necessity, but it has become a nice way to relieve my stress, "he said. João Victor also does yoga daily (twice a day!) He likes to read while walking as well. “It seems to be weird but it takes part of my life “he adds.

In 2015, João Victor took another important step in his career. This time, he moved to the United States to study at the New York Film Academy, which has in its list of speakers names such as Al Pacino, Steven Spielberg, Martin Scorcese, among many others top notch celebrities of Hollywood. "At first it was a little scary; from Natal (Brazil) to Los Angeles is a big step, but I adapted myself quite well to life in there and it is one of my greatest assets.

In Los Angeles, he participated in several productions such as: The Pilowman, Brother Size and Hortensia and The Museum of Dreams.

So excited and completely in love with the work, he defines himself not only as comedy or drama actor, but also as an artist who loves everything he does, including dubbing, which is also a way of acting.
