After her knockout turn as an all-too-human hologram, Cuban actress Ana De Armas’ Hollywood career is materializing into something more substantial.

Ana de Armas takes pride in her ability to zero in on the emotional core of a character, but she admits things get a little tricky when her character is composed of ones and zeroes.

That’s the case in visionary filmmaker Denis Villeneuve’s sci-fi/noir epic, Blade Runner 2049, in which de Armas plays Joi, a hologram who, in pulp detective tradition, serves as a faithful high-tech gal Friday—and maybe more (think Siri with a digital body and the devotion of Mike Hammer’s secretary, Velda)—to Ryan Gosling’s replicant-hunting K. And although artificial, Joi is also in many ways the story’s beating heart, which made for some serious acting challenges for de Armas, such as when her character suffers tech glitches.

WHO: Ana de Armas

WHAT: Ana is hardly a new face in the film industry, but her upcoming role as Joi in Blade Runner 2049 puts her on a whole new playing field. While details about her character have remained under wraps, we know she plays the romantic opposite to Ryan Gosling’s K. Some may call that lucky (honestly, hard to refute that), but Ana’s new stardom and prestige reflect years of hard work—over 10—for the Cuban actress whose résumé is impressive…and growing.

What excited me most about playing the role of Joi is… “that she, as a woman, is expected to be and act in a certain way, and she was more than that.”

Surprisingly, the one thing I do have in common with Joi is that… “I would sacrifice anything for love.”

To prepare to take on such a major role in a film as highly anticipated as this one, I… “had a lot of conversations with [director] Denis Villeneuve and a lot of sharing of ideas. Of course, the first Blade Runner was a big inspiration for all of us … but we are creating our own movie now with a very different director and new characters, so it was long talks with Denis and going through the scenes with him and Ryan and knowing at what point emotionally these characters are at.”

Unless you were on the set of Blade Runner 2049, you might not know that… “our still photographer, Steve, was the same still photographer for the first film. So in between takes, I used to hang with him, and he would tell me stories about the actors and how it was working with Ridley [Scott].”

The best lesson I’ve ever learned from a costume designer or stylist is… “sometimes you have to take risks. I’ve always thought that fashion is something to help show who you are and to reinforce your personality. It can be a strength. So it’s important that when you have a stylist they get to really know you and you feel comfortable in what you are wearing. But you should also listen and try new things. I’m working on that.”

What I love most about style in my home country of Cuba is… “there wasn’t really a sense of fashion in Cuba. Now it’s different: People have more access to Instagram or magazines. When I was growing up, none of that was going on. It was pretty hippy, artisanal, and kind of freeing that you didn’t really have to think too much about. I always recycled my brother’s clothes. I wore boy stuff mixed with hippy skirts and always flip-flops. Always.”

The three fall pieces that are currently sitting in my shopping cart are… “I’d love one of those Stella McCartney masculine wool coats in dark blue. It has that tomboyish vibe–I love it!

“I would like some really badass leather pants, like with zippers and things here at the knees.

“I would love one of those little Chloé bags.”

“I’m trying to find a way of saying something without saying anything!” Actor Ana de Armas is trying not to give anything away about the much anticipated Blade Runner 2049. Armas plays Joi, a newcomer to the original’s universe of humans and androids sloping around a dystopian Los Angeles of the future.

She can be forgiven for being cautious. Blade Runner is a cultural touchstone, preserved by the U.S Library of Congress as a key part of America’s film heritage, lauded as one of the best sci-fi films of all time. Its sequel, out now, comes freighted with serious expectation.

Run a quick Google search on 2049 and you’ll find endless attempts to break the trailer down frame-by-frame by journalists and fans alike, all trawling for tidbits. But — non-disclosure agreements and a rabid fanbase wanting answers aside — Cuban-born Armas proceeds to chat for a good half an hour about the film. She promises “the same toxic atmosphere” of the original, and that she plays “a very complex character […] we could talk about Joi for days.” There’s a lot of speculation about whether Joi is human, an android “replicant”, or neither. Whoever she is, Armas says that she shares plenty of screen time with Ryan Gosling’s Agent K, who’s on the hunt from Harrison Ford’s iconic Rick Deckard.
