Fernando Ramos Da Silva

Fernando Ramos Da Silva (November 29, 1967 São Paulo-August 25, 1987 São Paulo) a.k.a. Fernando Ramos or Pixote was a Brazilian actor.

He gained notoriety for his role as the titular character in the film "Pixote, a Lei do Mais Fraco" (Pixote, the Law of the Weakest) directed by Hector Babenco in 1981. The film depicts the grim life of a group of impoverished children and teenagers who turn to crime to survive on the streets of São Paulo. Ramos Da Silva was only 11 years old when he was cast in the lead role, and his naturalistic and heartbreaking performance earned him critical acclaim both in Brazil and internationally. Unfortunately, his promising acting career was cut short in 1987 when he was shot and killed by police while trying to steal a car. He was only 19 years old at the time of his death, but his legacy lives on through his poignant portrayal of Pixote, a symbol of the social inequality and violence that plagued Brazil's urban landscape in the 1980s.
