Débora Duarte is one of the most popular Brazilian actresses, the perfect girl next door who everybody loves. Born the same year the television first got to Brazil, she became a child actor, growing up in front of the whole country. Her first role was on live television as Cosette, from Les Misérables, in 1958. Some of Débora’s roles provoked such a commotion in Brazil that women would mimic her wardrobe, haircut, nail polish. More than fifty soap-operas, miniseries and TV series transformed that little girl in one of the most admired actors of an entire generation. 

Laura Malin digs into the good and the bad, as she narrates, in the first person, Débora’s life.
