Gal Costa has always been very private about her intimate life. Her marriage to Wilma Petrilo, for example, only became known to the general public after her death in November last year. In the film “My Name is Gal”, which has been a success in cinemas, the artist’s sexuality is not a taboo. Lélia, who would have been one of her first girlfriends, comes to life in the film. The character is played by Elen Clarice.
The film marks the 37-year-old actress and photographer’s film debut. Elen began studying theater in 2005, graduating in Performing Arts, but ended up pursuing a career in Advertising. She only decided to return to working as an actress eight years ago, after the birth of her son. Since then, she has been one of the protagonists of the series “Lov3” and recently recorded as the last companion of cartoonist Henfil in “Betinho — No fio da razora”, a Globoplay series about the life of sociologist Herbert de Sousa.
