Former actress Lídia Brondi, 63, made a rare appearance on social media during the holiday season. She reappeared in a family photograph shared by her niece Luiza Gabus Mendes this Monday (25).
Brondi was one of the biggest stars on Brazilian TV in the 1980s. Her last soap opera was “Meu Bem, Meu Mal” (1991). On stage, she performed her last play the following year. And then, without warning, she disappeared from the scene. Today, she works as a psychologist.
The former actress is married to actor Cássio Gabus Mendes, 62. They are the uncles of Luiza Gabus Mendes, daughter of Tato Gabus Mendes. They all appear in the photo alongside the family’s grandmother, Elenita Sanchez.
Lídia debuted on Globo as a teenager, in 1975, in the soap opera “O Grito”. But it only really broke out in 1978, in the classic “Dancin’ Days”, by Gilberto Braga. From then on, he chained one success after another.
Since her decision to abandon her artistic career, her public appearances have been rare. In 2016, a banal photo of Lídia, having dinner at a São Paulo restaurant alongside her husband, caused a huge stir on the internet. In 2021, Cassio Gabus Mendes shared a photo with his wife.
Many people wondered then and now what led such a successful actress to leave her career at the height of her fame. Lídia herself has said that she simply got tired, and that she wanted to do something else. After abandoning her artistic career, she studied Psychology and opened a practice in São Paulo.
