Adriana Ferreyr (born May 18, 1983 in Brazil) is a Brazilian film, television, stage actress and entrepreneur.[3]

Early life and education[edit]

Ferreyr was born in Salvador, Bahia, Brazil, the daughter of Rogério Ferreiro, a civil engineer.[4]

Her acting career started in the theater at the age of eight when she joined the theater company of Fernando Peltier. She acted in several plays, among which: O Jardim das Borboletas (The Butterfly Garden), O Jardim das Abelhas (The Bees Garden), Turma da Mônica (Monica and her pals) and A Noviça Rebelde (The Sound of Music). [5]

While taking classes at the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro,[6] Ferreyr continued to pursue an acting career and, after two years, landed a role as a lead character in the prime time Sistema Brasileiro de Televisão soap opera Marisol (2002), playing Vanessa Lima do Vale, Marisol's adopted daughter.[7]

In 2011, Ferreyr was pursuing a bachelor's degree at Columbia University School of General Studies.[8]

Personal life[edit]

Ferreyr previously dated George Soros for 5 years.[3][9][10][11] On August 10, 2011, Ferreyr filed a $50 million lawsuit against Soros for fraud, harassment, emotional distress, estoppel and assault and battery.[12][13] In 2011 Soros tried to dismiss the lawsuit and was unsuccessful.[14][15][16] In March 2013, Soros sued Ferreyr for defamation and assault.[16][17] On April 1, 2014, Soros won a partial dismissal of Ferreyr's lawsuit; the appellate court, in a unanimous decision, dismissed her claims of fraud, infliction of emotional distress and other claims against Soros. The appellate court didn't dismiss Ferreyr's claim of assault and battery, however.[18]

As of December 2012, Ferreyr lives in the Harlem neighborhood of New York City's borough of Manhattan.[8][19]


In 2011, Ferreyr owned a retail business selling sunglasses and Christmas ornaments through kiosks in malls on the West Coast of the United States.[3]
