From Porto to the World

She is one of today’s international actresses. In Suicide Squad, as Ratcatcher 2, a character born and raised in Porto, Daniela Melchior shines alongside north-American film stars such as Idris Elba, John Cena, Margot Robbie or Sylvester Stallone.

Daniela Melchior was the cover of Portuguese Soul. “I have dreamt of becoming an actress since an early age. My biggest dream was to be a film star, at least in Europe”, she admitted.

Daniela Melchior, who is now 25 years old, began her career in 2014, performing various roles in soap operas. It was, however, the film Parque Mayer that caught Hollywood’s attention. “Someone in the US saw the trailer and asked to represent me; I accepted because I had nothing to lose”. It was the beginning. Selected for casting, she was advised to “dress up as a superstar”. She ended up surprising by her posture and for being comfortable around the cameras.

For Daniela Melchior, this is only the beginning of an international career, as she already signed with Warner Bros to integrate three more movies. Those who get to know her, seem to surrender to her charms. James Gunn, in his Instagram, commented: “Daniela has a unique quality, one that you have to be born with because it can’t be learned. She is charming, without being intrusive, friendly without being nosy, sweet, shy, attentive and spontaneous”.

And now? It comes “Marlowe”, where she gets to act opposite Liam Neeson, the actor from “Schindler’s List”.
