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:
