The Government will declare national mourning on the day of the funeral of actress Eunice Muñoz, who died today in Lisbon at the age of 93, the Ministry of Culture announced.

“The Government, in conjunction with the President of the Republic, will declare national mourning on the day of Eunice Muñoz’s funeral”, a source from the Ministry of Culture told Lusa.

The Minister of Culture, Pedro Adão e Silva, highlighted today the close and intimate relationship of the Portuguese with the actress and the “huge applause” he received in life and which he assured that it will be maintained.

“Right now we owe her the same applause that we always offer her, an applause that is somehow eternal”, declared the minister to the Lusa agency, considering it a “privilege for Portugal and for the Portuguese” to have an actress like Eunice Muñoz.

“She had an almost natural talent and a unique gift for acting and, for this very reason, for all of us, Eunice Muñoz’s life is intertwined with the stages and with the theater, it’s a kind of intimate relationship that we all developed with the sweet and affable woman”, said the governor.

Pedro Adão e Silva also highlighted the actress’ long and extremely close and intimate career: “It’s as if everyone knew her and maybe that’s also a distinctive mark. It’s not just her actual gift and talent as an actress, it is also this closeness and this intimacy”.

Eunice Muñoz died today, at Hospital de Santa Cruz, in Lisbon, according to the actress’s son, having completed 80 years of career in November.

In April of last year, Eunice Muñoz was decorated by the President of the Republic, Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa, with the Grand Cross of the Military Order of Sant’Iago da Espada, about three years after having received the Grand Cross of the Order of Merit.
