It does not really matter where you come from in the world, if you want to be considered one of the biggest and best stars in the acting industry then you have to make the move to Hollywood and prove yourself among the best that the acting world has to offer. There are a lot of people who are considered stars in their own country but are relatively unknown on a global scale.
Just take Brazilian actress Claudia Raia for example. It is fair to say that Claudia Raia is one of the biggest and most popular actresses from Brazilian film and television, having appeared in a whole host of different movies and shows over the years. However, Claudia is not a name that is known by many people outside of South America and, if she never makes the move to Hollywood, it never will be.
So, will we ever see Claudia Raia decide to make the move to Hollywood and try to prove herself among the world's elite? Well the chances are that it will never happen. At the age of 47 Claudia is not getting any younger and most actresses in Hollywood her age are already well established. There is also the fact that Raia seems perfectly happy in Brazil where she is considered a big star.
With that said, there is no denying that Claudia Raia is a talented actress and if her English is up to scratch then we see no reason why she would not become a hit in Hollywood. Unfortunately it does not look like we will ever get to find out.
