Early yearsEdit

Gofman was born in Rio de Janeiro. Her dream as a child was to be a veterinarian,[3] and a protector of animals. With a theatrical training background, Gofman studied with Maria Clara Machado, and at Casa de Arte das Laranjeiras.[4]

CareerEdit

When her sister, Roxanne, pursued an artistic career as an actress, Gofman decided to follow suit. She was only 20 years old when she was cast in the first version of the soap opera Ti Ti Ti (1985),[4] and gained prominence with her character Monique in Selva de Pedra. Irreverent, she often performed in comedy roles. In Caminho das Índias, another soap opera on Brazilian TV, she made the audience laugh with her bumbling character Dayse.[1] She participated in several soap operas and mini-series, among them Um Só Coração, produced by Rede Globo, where she played the painter Anita Malfatti. She also played a character in Cortina de Vidro by Walcyr Carrasco.

Her film debut was in Roberto Gervitz's Feliz Ano Velho released in 1987. She joined Bia Lessa's theatrical company and took part in several international theater festivals. Directed by Lessa, she acted in Everyday, based on the novel by Virginia Woolf, Ibsen's Casa de Bonecas, A Megera Domada, and Orlando.
