Studio Photoshoots > 2017 > Session 015 for Who What Wear

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.”

Studio Photoshoots > 2017 > Session 014 for Wonderland

“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:
