Sonia Braga: 1950—: Actress.




Few press reports on the actress Sonia Braga ever fail to mention her nickname, "the Brazilian Bombshell." Best known for her role in the acclaimed 1985 film Kiss of the Spider Woman, Braga has made dozens of films, both in her native Brazil and for Hollywood studios, and many of the performances have been marked by a smoldering sensuality. The Brazilian director Arnaldo Jabor enthused to Los Angeles Times writer Roderick Mann that Braga "is one of the rare actresses in the history of cinema to combine great acting ability with an overpowering sexual presence."
