She is currently one of the major Portuguese actresses. In theatre, television or films, Victoria Guerra takes Portugal’s name beyond the country’s borders. And she promises to continue.
Do you still remember your first role?
My first role was in Morangos com Açúcar, where I realised that acting could really be a career for me.
What was the biggest professional challenge you faced?
It was the film Cosmos, for I was working with Andrzej Zulawski, with a Gombrowicz text. It put me outside of my comfort zone, as it was in another language, and I really wanted to do it.
Film, theatre or television? Which do you prefer? (And why?)
All three are different languages in which different techniques are applied, and which bring different returns to my work and to me personally. I have more experience in cinema and television;
I would like to explore theatre more.
What does the Portuguese soul mean to you?
The sense of the collective in discovering new horizons without forgetting history, the place where we were born projected into a future that unites us with greater strength.
What (professional) expectations do you have for 2020?
Professionally, I want to continue on this path that I am fortunate enough to have been able to follow so far. Essentially, for 2020, I want us to look at and listen to others more, and each other, so that it may be a year of fraternity and affection, at work and outside of work, in Portugal and, basically, in the world.
