Why does José Lucas have the last name of Nada in the soap opera ‘Pantanal’?
As Generosa did not know who the father of her child was, the boy was given the surname ‘de Nada’. The current pedestrian and truck driver was raised with the help of his grandmother and other pedestrians and always had to go after what he wanted.
Which actor was José Lucas de Nada in the 1st version of the soap opera ‘Pantanal’?
In the 1990 version, the character was created after Paulo Gorgulho won public and critical praise for playing José Leôncio in the first phase. Afterwards, the actor handed Claudio Marzo the main character and returned to the soap opera as José Lucas de Nada.
