Alice Braga (born April 15, 1983) is a Brazilian actress. She has appeared in several films, most notably as AngÃ©lica in 2002’s highly acclaimed City of God. In 2007 her first U.S. blockbuster, I Am Legend, was released.
Braga was born in SÃ£o Paulo, Brazil. Her exposure to the world of acting came at an exceedingly early age. As both her mother, Ana Braga, and aunt, SÃ´nia Braga,are actresses, Alice often accompanied the two to film sets and it did not take long for her to develop an appreciation for all things theatrical. She started out her career by appearing in school plays and even a few commercials, but it wasn’t until she was a teenager that she began seriously pursuing roles in television and movies.
