Mel Lisboa Alves (born January 17, 1982) is a Brazilian actress born in Porto Alegre. A precocious child, she began dating at 11, got her first tattoo at 13 years and various small piercings. She started seeing a psychotherapist at 15 and debuted on television as the protagonist in the series Presença de Anita on Brazil\s TV Globo, at the age of 19. She acted in telenovelas (Desejos de Mulher — \"Woman\s Desires\" and Como uma Onda — \"Like a Wave\"), theatre (Moças de Fino Trato) and TV special programmes, as well as several photo shootings for magazines and fashion companies (including a pictorial for the Brazilian Playboy in 2004), even though she says a career as a model does not appeal to her.
