Big names in Brazilian Showbiz mourned the loss of the actress and model online, with actress Larissa Manoela, influencer Lucas Neto, and soap opera actor Matheus Dias paying tribute.
Manoela said: ‘Still in shock about your departure. Young girl, very sweet, talented, and affectionate. Rest in peace, Isis! My condolences to the entire family.’
Dias said: ‘Rest, my friend! Love you forever. She was a great sight, with a smile that reached the front, a laugh that was good to hear, a sweet voice and so beautiful. I always praised you, because I always knew how great you were, and not for nothing I always compared you to the sun.
‘And now you leave the scene, without goodbyes on a sunny day as beautiful as you. Holy s***, it’s f***ed up, it hurts.
‘But you needed to enchant bigger, more sunny places and I really hope you look after us from wherever you are.
‘Rest easy, my love, may the heavenly father welcome you and may your smile be the strongest mark in the memories of the people you were present with in life.’
