Marisa Orth says that Aracy Balabanian ‘lowered the ball’ of those who had exalted spirits in Sai de Baixo


“She had incredible moderating power, putting everyone down when tempers flared and laughing.” This is how actress and colleague from Sai de Baixo Marisa Orth, 59, recalls Aracy Balabanian. The actress, who died at the age of 83 after a battle with cancer, was veiled this Tuesday morning (8) at the Municipal Theater in Rio.

“Very professional, she always did her best at work. She was very discreet, punctual, willing and humble. In her personal life, very affectionate, attentive and maternal too. She was much nicer than usual”, added Marisa when asked about his friendship with Aracy, who played his mother in the Globo sitcom between 1996 and 2002.

The wake is open to the public until 13h this Tuesday (8). Afterwards, the actress will be cremated in a ceremony closed only to friends and relatives, at the Crematorium and Cemetery of Penance.

During his career, Balabanian collected unforgettable roles, establishing himself as one of the most famous faces on Brazilian television. Known for her versatility, she has gone from snarky humor to deep drama in a career spanning more than five decades.

Among her best-known works on television is the character Cassandra, from Sai de Baixo. In addition, she gave life to the famous Dona Armenia, in the soap opera “Rainha da Sucata”, one of her works most remembered by the public.

Dozens of celebrities lamented the farewell in publications on social networks, including President Lula, who issued a note of regret earlier this Monday afternoon.
