Joana Ribeiro



In this last year we have seen you almost everywhere, doing many things, being successful in and out of Portugal. But when you`re not working, what catches your attention?

When I`m not working… I like to keep my reading up-dated. I really enjoy reading although unfortunately when I`m working I have to read so many scripts and episodes that I simply cannot read other things. I always try to take a long trip when I have time too, you only really know a place when you visit it and get to know that country’s culture and I have an immense eagerness to get to know new places and cultures. And I spend more time with my family and friends, of course.


We know that you studied architecture for a year and that art was always in some way present. What role does art play in your life?

Art plays a crucial role in my life. Not a day goes by without listening to music, or watching a film, or going to a show, or reading something. I believe art is present in almost everything in our lives.


Have you ever thought about going back to architecture?

No. I have too much respect for the profession and for those who do it. Architecture, like acting, must be experienced by someone who is 100% there and there will always be a part of me in acting. It would be unfair.
