Thiago Lacerda (born January 19, 1978 in Rio de Janeiromarker, Brazilmarker) is a Brazilian actor.

Thiago spent his childhood between Rio de Janeiromarker, where he was born, and Recreio, a mining town where his grandparents live. From the age of three to 16, he devoted himself to swimming, winning more than 170 medals. Convinced that it would be very difficult to make a living in the sport, he abandoned the idea of becoming a professional swimmer and started to make breaks as a model, besides working as a salesman for a clothing store. He attended a course of interpretation to get rid of shyness, which he felt would hinder his career as manager of a bank. He was ashamed of his 1.95 meters in height, confessing, "I thought that everybody was looking at me".

Thiago was studying Business Administration at UERJ when he received an invitation to test for the part of a professor of swimming in Malhação. He resolved to take the risk and was awarded the role. After finishing recording the first scene, he felt he had discovered what he wanted to do in life.

Two years later, the actor appeared as protagonist of the novela Terra Nostra, in which he played Matheo, an Italian immigrant who came to Brazilmarker seeking a better life. No only did Thiago conquer the actress Ana Paula Arósio in the series, but he conquered all of Brazilmarker and became the leading actor of the Globo network. After his success as Matheo, he participated in the miniseries Aquarela do Brasil and the novelas The Daughters of Mother and The Kiss of the Vampire. In 2003, he was invited to live the role of Giuseppe Garibaldi in the miniseries The House of Seven Women. The actor considered the role a real gift, because, since the time of Terra Nostra, he had studied and admired the life of the Italianmarker revolutionary.

But Thiago realized that success and fame also have their bad side. Inconvenienced by gossip, he sued the journalist and presenter Leão Lobo and Gugu Liberato, who wore swimwear in a program called 'Domingo Legal' claiming to be the actor - and won both of the cases. "Gossip cannot interfere with the mechanism which governs each and every aspect: respect. If the person does not give me respect, I can do one of two things: either be full of 'porrada' or be civilized. I choose always to be civilized. I think after the measures they took, I learned to be respected."

Thiago is married to the actress Vanessa Lóes, and they have one son, Gael.
