The 26-year-old actress, famous for her performances in Brazilian soap operas, shared the moment she was invited to be part of Blue Beetle.
“How would you feel if I told you that we’d like you to be our Penny?” asks producer John Rickard.
At the same time, the actress cries a lot and asks if she still must respond to the invitation.
She made the post on Instagram last Tuesday night (8), hours after the news were officially released.
