Friends and famous mourn the death of Luiz Carlos Araújo

Camilla Camargo, actress.

“I can’t believe it, I can’t, I don’t want to believe it. I met you when I was 9 years old and since then, stages have been divided, stories, hugs, affection, which are eternalized. You were my friend, villain, cat, grandfather and in our last work you were my brother. Both of us Librans loved to share that too and we’ve already celebrated that joy together. I love you forever, these hugs will be with me forever, I feel you won’t meet my little ones as we were combining, this pandemic took that away from us, but God gave us many other moments to stay forever in my heart. It hurts Lu, it hurts a lot. Heaven will have one of the most talented artists to brighten up there and we’ll miss you here. See you soon,” he wrote.

Tony Germano, actor.

“My friend, I have no ground. Friend of so many years and so many laughs. So many heated discussions. The last time we saw each other, you were worried about me walking alone through the hustle and bustle of Carnival at night. I will miss you so much, even seeing us so little, but I was sure that from time to time we would bump into each other and we would always continue to be friends. Go in peace”, he lamented.

Kiara Sasso, actress.

“How to believe? An extremely sweet, kind, talented person and an example of health, simply leave us? Dear Luiz, we didn’t have the opportunity to work together, but that didn’t stop me from being impacted by your beautiful energy! May your passage be so full of light. You will be missed,” he said.

“Lu was an amazing actor! Solidary human being, dear friend, dedicated professional! How many laughs we gave together behind the scenes of Dois Filhos de Francisco’s musical”, he recalled.
