On the air as Abigail in A Força do Querer, Mariana Xavier spoke about the frustrations of the profession in a video published on Monday (1st) on her YouTube channel. The carioca said that it is common for the public to believe that her life is easier because she is on television, but that even today she receives refusals at work.
“A lot of people look at me and think that I have a living, multimillionaire. That I am invited of honor for all roles, that I even refuse several … That I am already on a level. But here in the real world, not in this fantasy, I keep doing tests, I keep bitter refusals, I still fail in several of them “, she explained.
Silvero’s friend (Nonato Pereira) in fiction also confessed that in order to get her first role in a soap opera – like Ana Rita in Além do Horizonte (2013) -, she had to do seven tests.
The artist also reiterated that, contrary to what the public thinks, having already done roles in other works is not a certainty that she will get new works: “Sometimes they fill me with hope, they give me the project for sure and then I don’t get paid nor a thank you. I find out on social media that someone is playing my part “, he commented.
Model in the novel
At the end of A Força do Querer, Ruy’s secretary (Fiuk) becomes a successful plus size model. Because of work, Mariana Xavier confessed that she always receives messages from fat women who want to follow the profession.
“I always received these approaches with a certain dismay, even a certain laziness. I always replied only in my mind: ‘Hey friend, you don’t know what you’re talking about. The hole is much further down,” she pointed out.
The interpreter explains that there is a false feeling that any type of fat body can be accepted as a model, but this is not the reality.
“You can notice that most of the plus size models that we see in campaigns, editorials and advertising films are not really fat. There is still a lot of struggle ahead for there to be true diversity”, he concluded.
