Antônio Abujamra (15 September 1932 – 28 April 2015) was a Brazilian theatre and television director and actor. Majored in journalism and philosophy at the Pontifícia Universidade Católica do Rio Grande do Sul in 1957, he started a career as a theater critic while directed and acted his own plays for university theater. Professionally, he debuted as a theatre director in 1961, and as an actor in 1987, acting in both theatre and television.[1] In 1989, he became known nationally by his role as Ravengar in Rede Globo's telenovela Que Rei Sou Eu?, which became his most known role.[2][3][4] In that same year, Abujamra won the Best Actor Award at the Gramado Film Festival for his role in the film Festa.[5] From 2000 onward, he was the presenter of TV Cultura's interview program Provocações.[1]
