Lolita Rodrigues died this Sunday (5), aged 94, in Rio de Janeiro. The great Brazilian artist was a pioneer on television and marked generations with memorable works.
Famous people on social media lamented the departure.
Lolita was at the opening ceremony of the station led by Assis Chateaubriand (1892-1968), singing the anthem A Canção da TV. She was cast in a hurry, replacing her friend Hebe Camargo, who withdrew from participating to have a meeting with her then boyfriend Luís Ramos.
In her biography, signed by Eliana Castro and released in 2008 by Coleção Aplauso, Lolita stated: “I’m not an interesting person. I have nothing to tell. I’m just like everyone else. I don’t have a maid. I take care of my things myself. One cleaning lady is enough for me. I am very simple. Home food is frozen. I love watching TV. In particular, the Spanish-language channels, because I am the daughter of immigrants.” At the time, Lolita lived in the city of São Paulo and went to Rio de Janeiro for work – her last soap opera was Viver a Vida (Globo, 2009), as Noêmia.
