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.

“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.

The Cuban actress first auditioned for the role of Joi, Ryan Gosling’s love interest, by reading a scene from the 2014 sci-fi flick ‘Ex Machina’ — and is still cagey on details of the character: “She is anything you want her to be.”

In the film (and we promise, this is not a spoiler), de Armas plays Joi, the romantic partner of Ryan Gosling’s Agent K, a complex part that works as the heart of the film—and one that the actress admits she originally was not meant to get. “At the beginning, all I heard [from my management] was, ‘There is this audition, and we are pushing for you to get into the room.’ So pushing means that I was not on the list,” she said with a laugh. “But I’m glad that they did push.”

The actress, it turns out, is not a stranger to the art of a good push. Growing up in Havana, de Armas discovered her passion for acting at an early age, and quickly set her career path into motion. “There wasn’t a specific day or actor or anything like that, but I do remember that I would watch a movie and if there was any scene that I liked, I would run from the couch to the mirror and repeat it over and over again. I would get very emotional,” she recalled. “When I was twelve, I heard about the National Theater School and I told my parents, ‘That’s what I want to do.’ And that was it.”

Where do I come from?

“I come from an island called Cuba,” de Armas tells me as we sit inside Forge studios while a crew of stylists, photographers, and agents scramble around us trying to decide on her first “look” of the day. She left the comforts of Havana in 2014, not in pursuit of making more money or a chance at a “better life,” she says—she traveled to Los Angeles to grow as an artist. “Leaving my career and my life there was a huge risk, but I’ve never been intimidated by risk. It excites me,” she tells me. She knew at a young age that she wanted to pursue acting, enrolling in the National Theatre School of Cuba in Havana when she was only 14 years old. “The four years I studied in drama school were incredibly important in my formation as an actress. They were critical in showing me what discipline is in this profession, what hard work acting really is. It’s nothing fancy, and it’s not easy at all.” For more over the source:
