Born in Cuba on April 30, 1988, Ana de Armas was just 14 years of age when she started her studies at the National Theatre School of Havana. Ana graduated there for 4 years. And at the age of 16, Ana de Armas made her first film, Virgin Rose (2006) which is directed by Manuel Gutiérrez Aragón.
The young actress later moved to Spain where she continued her film career and also started on TV. In 2017 she appeared in a French action-thriller movie ‘Overdrive’ in which she played Scott Eastwood’s girlfriend who becomes involved in his plot to steal cars from a ruthless tycoon. While the film received scathing reviews, De Armas’ performance received praise from critics.
She has two films coming out this summer (2016), War Dogs, directed by Todd Philips, along Miles Teller and Jonah Hill. And Hands of Stone.
While not a household name across the UK, the Cuban actor’s picture has been on billboards around the country promoting the upcoming Blade Runner 2049.
Currently Ana is filming for the movie “Blade Runner 2” directed by Denis Villeneuve opposite Ryan Gosling and Harrison Ford.
