Lilian Viana, Actress
The Woman Behind the Voice
Lilian Viana was born in the city of Belo Horizonte capital of the State of Minas Gerais, Brazil. Born and raised in a traditional middle class family, Lilian began at the age of eight as a hostess and newscaster on a TV program called "Universidade Popular da Manhγ" (Popular University in the Morning). This cultural and educational show for children and adolescents was aired by TV Itacolomy, which became TV Tupi and eventually merged with TV Manchete, one of the largest TV networks in Brazil at that time.
TV, Movies & Radio
Because of her previous on-camera experience, Lilian has been invited to appear in several local TV and radio productions, sometimes as a hostess, newscaster, or as a talent for commercial spots. She has also appeared as a guest, being interviewed many times for her singing achievements.
In 1998, she created and hosted her own radio show, an hour program called "Canta Brasil" (Sing Brazil). This program was aired weekly by La Poderosa, a South Florida AM radio station, for approximately seven months.
The show focused on the enormous variety of Brazilian rhythms, with a carefully selected repertoire of Brazilian songs and artists. The idea was not only to showcase already recognized names, but also the talent of many local Brazilian musicians, composers and interpreters, who would very often be interviewed live on the program. The show had a live participation segment, where listeners could call to make comments and to request songs.
She has also been involved in a few local Brazilian TV productions, hosting specific segments or doing external overages and interviews.
Acting has always been one of Lilian's passions. She has participated as an extra in film productions such as Bad Boys II, Fast & the Furious II, From Justin to Kelly (a tale of American Idols), CSI Miami, Burn Notice and Son of Morning.
