Thaila Ayala Sales[1] (born April 14, 1986) is a Brazilian actress and model.


Thaila Ayala was born in Presidente Prudente, São Paulo, in 1986. She has lived in several countries, including Mexico, Thailand and Chile.

She played Marcela, the protagonist of the 14th season of the teen soap Malhação.[2] In 2006, she posed nude for the magazine Trip.[3]

In 2007, she was photographed by Terry Richardson for the book, Rio, Wonderful Town, which was released later that same year. She was featured in a photo with her breast showing and biting her lip. Casting producer Luis Fernando Silva later claimed to have repented for participation in the book.[4]

In 2011, Ayala said that posing nude was like a "rape".[5]

In January 2016, Thaila worked with Indian American Director Aditya J Patwardhan in the upcoming short film When Red is White, aka The Touch of Aurora. [6][7]
