“I wrote a text, I am deeply grateful to the Metropolitan Theater Awards for this recognition of my career, the first time I went to a theater I was a child, disguised as a devil for a school shepherd and so I accidentally discovered that magical place where, to my surprise, they paid me to do the same thing that outside the theater they scolded me ”, the actor commented in a thank you video.
