It needs to be something that makes sense, says Rodrigo Santoro about a possible return to soap operas


The strands of gray hair left Rodrigo Santoro, 48, with a more mature look, which leads to an immediate contrast with the big boy Santoro in his last soap opera on Globo — counting only those in which he participated from beginning to end.

Even so, it’s difficult not to associate him with Diogo, from “Mulheres Apaixonadas”, who until recently was on the air in “Vale a Pena Ver de Novo”. A success in Manoel Carlos’ plot exactly 20 years ago, his character was married to Marina (Paloma Duarte), but in love with his cousin Luciana, played by Camila Pitanga.

Since then, participation in Brazilian productions has been very rare. Santoro has enjoyed an international career focused on films and series — and it appears he will continue that way. “I like teledramaturgy and I miss doing soap operas, but because of the recording time… It’s difficult for me. Real. It needs to be something that makes sense”, says the actor to F5.

Rodrigo is in Rio after spending a few weeks recording in the Amazon the film “Outro Lado do Céu”, by Pernambuco director Gabriel Mascaro (“Divino Amor” and “Boi Neon”). Previously, he filmed the third and final season of Netflix’s “Bom dia, Verônica”, in São Paulo and Rio. In the meantime, he recorded in the United States and also in Europe.

“I keep going (laughs). A project comes up here, another there and that’s what’s interesting. I feel stimulated and people say ‘you live around the world, right?’. I say I live where the work is.” He even makes plans, but nothing that can’t change from one moment to the next. “Life has its own dynamics and I live one day at a time,” he says. “I don’t like to idealize and romanticize.”
