"Family Ties" telenovela with a very telling name, and it concerns not only the plot, but the family ties between the members of the crew. For example Deborah Secco (Iris) at the time of the shooting was the wife of the director Rogerio Gomes and Elena Ranaldo and to this day the wife of the director Ricardo Waddington.
Actress and director met on the set of the TV series "Olho no Olho" in 1993. Later, Elena admitted, "I fell in love with Ricardo at first sight, but he did not pay any attention to me.

In fact, the invitation of Carlos Manuel in the telenovela "Family Ties" was returning of Helena on the TV screen after a long hiatus and their fourth in a row collaboration with her husband Ricardo Waddington. Evil tongues immediately began to spread rumors that the role of Cynthia, she received only thanks to the patronage of her husband. Frustrated Elena once again had to defend in the media "every time history repeats itself, I attribute to non-existent laurels" first lady "of the series. But this is not the case and no privileges on the set for me does not exist, it does not matter that the director is my husband. Of course, I I understand or even know these envious, apparently, it is no longer something to occupy themselves, there is only gossip! ".

The role of Cynthia says the actress "was the greatest gift" for her. Elena childhood loves animals, the parent hacienda near San Paulo they had horses and cows, ducks and a few dogs. "My whole life was surrounded by animals, I have now in the house of two dogs live, this Labrador Kid and Cocker -spaniel Duke. " So, Elena quickly became a role and felt like a real vet. "I have learned to listen to the animals determined by the external signs of disease do injections." The only difficulty was the horseback riding, Elena did not take lessons before filming and relied on their own children`s skills and instincts. As a result, a few scenes had to reshoot several times. But once Elena at full gallop with his horse fell, hit hard chest and elbow, but basically got off lightly, though this episode telenovela was not included. Only once an understudy came to help Elena, when filming a scene of frenzied leaps, in this stage the horse Cynthia dramatically slows down and nearly knocked the child.
"In general, I liked the feel of the saddle, but with I would not venture to bind restive horses, and with obedient feel confident, have learned how to manage them. But a lot of attention and concentration required each scene together with the animals. It`s just as exciting as watching and with children, but most of improvisation, that`s just impossible to predict the reaction of the animal ... Therefore we must be prepared for the unexpected! "
But in addition to horses, the beautiful Cynthia in "family ties" are constantly surrounded by love with her man, a friend of Alex, the instructor on water skis Romeu and farm manager Pedro (Jose Maya).
