Frota, coincidentally, has a very strong connection with the circus. When he made the telenovela Cambalacho, in 1986, the actor played a young man who wants to become a circus trapeze artist. From then on, he began to study this art and join shows of the genre.

Years later, in 1995, Marcos Frota opened his own circus and became a national reference. That’s also why he was cast for the role in Chocolate com Pimenta in 2003, after all, nothing better than a scholar and passionate about the subject to compose the nucleus.

He is the creator of the well-known Circo dos Sonhos, which has its administration in São Paulo, but runs throughout Brazil. His name is also behind the Mirage Circus, based in Santa Catarina.

Death of first wife and son with Carolina Dieckmann

What few people know about Marcos Frota is that he faced a great personal drama in the early 90s. He was married between 1976 and 1993 to businesswoman Cibele Ferreira, who died in 1993 in an accident.

With Cibele, the actor had three children: Amaralina, born in 1979, Apoena, born in 1981, and Tainã, born in 1989. After being widowed, he had to face the dual role to raise his children.

“She passed away in a car accident, but to her I owe the formation of my character, the choice of my profession. I lived a love story that feeds me until today”, told Frota at the Meeting with Fátima Bernardes. The two started dating in their teens.

Two years after losing his wife, Marcos Frota had just opened his first circus and decided to invite artists to the ring. One of his guests was Carolina Dieckmann, who was already an actress at Globo and starred in Tropicaliente.

The two fell in love, but only started dating in 1996. They were married in a ceremony inside the Frota circus. In 1999 Davi was born, the couple’s first and only child. Carolina Dieckmann and Marcos Frota separated in 2003 without major trauma. In 2007 the Vai na Fé actress married director Tiago Worcman
