Mauro Mendonça Filho makes a statement to Jade Picon: ‘We always liked your performance’


The director of “Travessia”, Mauro Mendonça Filho, released an open letter to Jade Picon on his networks praising the actress’ career. The influencer – who gained prominence on BBB 22 (Globo) – was invited to participate in the plot shortly after the reality show and soon received harsh criticism for her performance. However, Jade was not shaken and seized the opportunity with “nails and teeth”.

Grazi Massafera, who also suffered prejudice early in her career, gave tips to the young actress. Fresh off BBB 5 (Globo) straight to the 9 pm soap opera, by Manoel Carlos, Grazi was harshly persecuted and was discredited to the point of thinking about giving up acting. “Just follow! Believe in your potential, study, take it very seriously and take care of your psychology. Get stronger in every way, trust the professionals who are at your side and learn a lot from them”, said Grazi in an interview with Gshow.

The Emmy winner and successes like “Verdades Secretas”, “Amor à Vida” and “O Outro Lado do Paraíso”, congratulated the courage and resilience of the actress. He advised the young woman not to stop studying and continue to develop her talent.


“My dear, you end the telenovela as a winner, ok. The strength you showed by enduring and overcoming criticism, few people would have. Not to mention the stomach. I’ve told you countless times (and also for those who really wanted to listen) that , directors, we always liked your acting, from the beginning. You never lacked confidence. Of course, you were learning, the lack of skills, the nervousness, not knowing what to do with your hands, not modulating your voice were evident. Normally, actors develop in the background, before showing themselves to the public. It takes a lot of courage to develop in front of the claws of millions of people. In the face of hatred, which, as you know better than me, feeds on crumbs. How it wasn’t worth feeding him, we opted for silence and simply working hard. You didn’t lack courage and commitment. As well as resilience, discipline, dedication, humility and an above average intelligence to learn the acting trade. I found it funny when someone questioned whether his career would continue or not. Remember what I told you on your first day of filming? “Today is the first day of the rest of your life.” Develop your talent, which you have a lot. Don’t stop studying, taking courses, workshops, theater. If you paint a good invitation, go for it, do it. Exercise. Search the human, open your wounds. You emerged as an influencer and on the BBB. The public knew more about her person than her work as an actress. It didn’t take long before they said you were doing it yourself. But people are unaware of how many established actors play themselves. There are those who like to compose, but there are those who adapt their personas to different characters. And there’s nothing wrong with that. But actors are smart about preserving their lives. So the ground is cleared, to be seen only as interpreters. This is the best tip I can give you: preserve Jade. Every woman is an ocean of mysteries. Save them for yourself, for your loved ones and for your acting job. Because that’s what you are now: an actress. I’ll see you around a lot, either as an audience, or in the embroidery, or in an upcoming job.
Luv u!”

The actress responded to the text by thanking the director of the soap opera for the affection and care: “Maurinho, without words for you!!! I just want to thank you for believing in me since the first day we saw each other. I will take your teachings with me for the rest of my life. thank you for the encouragement, for the love and care”
