It was a quick participation of just one chapter in which the protagonist, Maria Moura, as a young woman, was replaced by her mother, Glória Pires, in the adulthood of the character. After that, he distanced himself from TV and the media, believing that he had no vocation to follow in his mother's footsteps. Cleo says she saw Gloria working day and night without stopping, the press invading her privacy and the phone ringing all the time, and that she did not want it for her future.[2] She still says she just did not stand in the middle before, out of lack of will. Not that he had anything against his career, but it was something he did not think, it was not in his head.

I would also do a part in the special edition of the humorous Casseta & Planeta, Urgente! of end of year, however, due to health problems, was replaced by the singer Wanessa Camargo.[6] In 2006, he played the rebel Letícia in Cobras & Lagartos.
