For the first time, Sonho Meu (1993) is being rerun – premiered this Monday (12) on the Viva channel. Actors who were part of the renowned cast of the soap opera are missing from Globo’s teledramaturgy. There are those who continue their careers, with jobs outside the network, and those who have totally changed their lives.
Sonho Meu was very marked by the performance of Carolina Pavanelli, who at age six played the character Maria Carolina, known as Laleska in history. The girl prodigy, however, did not pursue a career in acting and became a teacher.
Patricia França, Laleska’s mother in the plot, was also missing from TV for many years. She now appears in two soap operas at the same time: in the rerun of Malhação – Sonhos (2014) and in Genesis.
Find out where five actors who stood out in Sonho Meu are:

Carolina grew up and became a teacher
The girl became a phenomenon when she debuted in My Dream. Impressed the audience for his charisma and talent, he boosted the success of the soap opera with his interpretation of Laleska. She even made special appearances in other Globo attractions, such as the soap opera Meu Bem Querer (1998) and the children’s TV Colosso (1993-1997) and Caça Talentos (1996-1998). The last time he acted on TV was in A Lei eo Crime (2009), by Record.
Carolina, however, left the audiovisual to follow another path. She graduated in Communication and works today as a Portuguese Language teacher.
