In the first episode of the documentary series “Home: Inner Life“, from GNT, the actor Luis Miranda opened the doors of his house in Barra do Jacuípe, on the north coast of Bahia. For him, “in the house of the Bahian, an orixá, an amulet, a figa, a candle cannot be missing”. No wonder, his home is described as a “space to receive protection and healing”.
Protection because faith is a central element in the house. In the center of the living room, there is the altar with flowers, saints and orixás, who watch over and protect the home. It cures because it was in Jacuípe that the actor and his mother managed to go through the mourning of their father’s death.
Religiosity and respect for all beliefs were inherited from the mother. From a Catholic and evangelical family, Luis found himself in Candomblé, but he keeps Catholic images on his altar. One of them has two faces: on one side, the orixá Ogum and, on the other, Santo Antônio, the saint who gave the actor’s hometown its name.
To remember his childhood in Santo Antônio de Jesus, in the interior of Bahia, Luis wanted to bring the aesthetics of a ranch and a farmhouse to his new address, with the right to walk from a seriguela in the backyard. On weekends and on commemorative dates, he takes advantage of the warmth of the beach and countryside to recharge his batteries. “Here we reintegrate again”, said the actor.
