Actor, comedian and director Paulo Gustavo died Tuesday evening (4) of complications from Covid-19.
Before being admitted, Paulo was full of projects: shooting a series based on “My mother is a play” for Globoplay and writing the fourth film in the franchise.
In the video below, recorded in December 2019, the actor revealed details of the ‘Minha Mãe É Uma Parte’ TV series – which would be shown by Globoplay and had four seasons confirmed. The streaming did not confirm how many episodes were filmed and whether the series will air.
The actor had already confirmed that he had invited Marieta Severo to play Dona Hermínia’s mother in the series.
On Twitter, several friends and celebrities posted messages in honor of the actor.
A country abandoned at the mercy of a madman without the slightest capacity to manage a pandemic, a country without a vaccine, with more than 400,000 dead, which loses the talented @ PauloGustavo31 to the fluke of President Chloroquine. How sad! He will be sorely missed! #PauloGustavo

“Say how much you love the one you love. But it’s not just in the statement, folks. Love in practice, in action. Love is action. Loving is an art. Lots of love, folks. See you later.”
