Beatrice Sayd was not afraid to expose herself to show the horrors of domestic violence in Amor de Mãe. The actress assumed her imperfections on the scene to immerse herself in the pain of Edilene, who sought Vitória (Taís Araujo) to denounce her boyfriend who physically attacked her in the nine o’clock soap opera. A suffering, in fact, that goes beyond the bruises on the body.
The interpreter states that she embarked on the direction proposal, signed by José Luiz Villamarim, which favors a more naturalistic tone to the detriment of the excesses commonly associated with serials – with the female characters waking up “mounted” in their feathered dressing gowns.
“The soap opera always asked for something realistic, so the makeup was not welcome. I always used little, a correction or another, but if it depended on the directors I wouldn’t even touch up. I took advantage of the dark circles, which I inherited from my Lebanese origin, and even I used to tie my hair to get a little messy “, explains the artist to the TV news.
The details were crucial to compose the maid of Lídia (Malu Galli), since it is not only the purple marks or the bandanas on her arms that show that woman’s suffering. “A person who suffers this type of aggression does not sleep well, has no desire to get dressed,” he lists.
The Covid-19 pandemic, by the way, did not impose challenges for Beatrice behind the scenes only at the time of the characterization, since the team was reduced due to the security protocols established by Globo. She also needed to arrive on the scene practically ready, with emotion in the press, as there were no opportunities for readings or rehearsals.

“I think that people who work with this profession have to know how to deal with different situations. I learned to activate an actor mechanism through training, but the most difficult thing is to have a dosage, to adjust the size of this interpretation. I still feel very lost, because television has a different time from the theater “, he analyzes.
She has even had lives twice a week on her Instagram (@beatricesayd) to advise other women on domestic violence. Sayd notes that machismo is pervaded in society as a whole, even in sectors that society perceives as more “evolved” or “deconstructed” – like the artistic.
“Harassment still happens in its great performance and form, which is sexual. I give you this if you do that. However, I think that this is changing, not least because today there is greater visibility, we live in a time when everything is filmed. Not to mention that there is a new wave of directors who don’t have this vision and think it’s a bit of a hog in it all “, concludes the actress.
Amor de Mãe returned to the air just to show how the Lourdes saga ends. The final phase has 23 chapters in all and will say goodbye to the public on the 9th. The next week is the last of the plot.
Then, Globo will have another primetime replay: Império (2014), a booklet written by Aguinaldo Silva. The unprecedented Um Lugar ao Sol, with Cauã Reymond playing twins, was postponed to debut in the second half of this year due to the worsening of the Covid-19 pandemic.
