Even before she became an actress, Júlia Gomes had a musical career behind her. She began studying the violin at the age of two in a text published in TodaTeen magazine in 2017, she says she chose the instrument because she enjoyed the film Barbie Swan Lake.

In 2010, at the age of 8, Júlia took part in the second season of the reality show “Qual é o Seu Talento?” on SBT. She wowed the audience by singing “I Will Always Love You” and took home the prize of R$200,000 in gold bars.

Have you ever worked in theatre?

Júlia’s debut as an actress took place in the theater in 2008: at the age of six she played Gretl in the musical “A Noviça Rebelde” in São Paulo. She alternated the role with Larissa Manoela.

She then starred in two 6pm soap operas on Globo: she played the daughter of Angelo Antonio and Gisele Fróes characters in A Vida da Gente and was the young Elisa in Amor Eterno Amor.

Back in theater she was the daughter of Gabriela Duarte in the play A Garota do Adeus and brought young Fiona to life in Shrek O Musical.

In 2014, Júlia played the role she is remembered for to this day: she was the villain Marian on Chiquititas.

The character had a difficult temper and was rejected by two families before arriving at the Raio de Luz orphanage. At first she pretends to be nice and befriends the other orphans, but soon she gets going.

Her main victim was Mili (Giovanna Grigio): Marian tried to kill her, leaving her blind throughout the novel. In the final chapter, however, the villain regrets it.
