Ana de Armas Has Taken Hollywood By Storm in the Last Few Years


From an unknown Cuban actress to becoming one of the most sought after stars in Hollywood, Ana de Armas has made the most of the opportunity she had been given since making her English-speaking debut in Knock Knock with Keanu Reeves back in 2015. That has seen her appear alongside Daniel Craig in his final James Bond movie No Time to Die, play Marilyn Monroe in controversial Netflix movie Blonde, and team up with Chris Evans multiple times in Knives Out, The Gray Man and Ghosted.

Exactly what those projects could be is something that is currently unknown, but it will not be long before de Armas finds her next projects.

For fans of the actress, she can be seen in romantic comedy adventure Ghosted on Apple TV+ from April 21, while her previous movies The Gray Man, Knives Out and Blonde are all currently streaming on Netflix.
