Deborah Secco exposes the boldness of the author of Save Yourself Who You Can: ‘I thought it was impossible’


On the air as Alexia/Josimara from Save Yourself Who Can, Deborah Secco exposed the daring of author Daniel Ortiz during the second phase of Globo’s seven o’clock soap opera, recorded in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic. “There were a lot of action scenes and I thought it would be impossible to do them with the distance,” revealed the actress.

“[Eu] I would pick up the script and think: ‘They are crazy! How are we going to do this with the protocol?’ And everything worked out!”, completed Deborah in an interview with Quem magazine.

Due to the health crisis, the Globo Studios were closed for months, paralyzing the work of Entertainment. The artist said that she was afraid to forget about the partnership of Kyra/Cleyde (Vitória Strada) and Luna/Fiona (Juliana Paiva).

“I confess that I was a little afraid of not knowing how to play Alexia anymore. She is a very composed character. I kept asking myself, during all the isolation caused by the pandemic, how I would keep Alexia in me”, he confessed.

“But it was awesome, as soon as I found the girls [protagonistas], John [Baldasserini], a Grace [Gianouskas], Alexia came back automatically. Getting back to work was very important to me. I loved doing Save Yourself Who You Can when, all of a sudden, we had to stop without saying goodbye to our colleagues or hugging,” she lamented.

“That [não se despedir] for me it was very traumatic. When we came back, it was an endless joy,” said the Globo soap opera star.
