AGE: 28.

PROVENANCE: Santa Cruz del Norte, Cuba.

BEHIND THE BAN: “My childhood memories are amazing, I had freedom in every way—but I see everything from a different perspective now that I live outside.”

STAMP OF SUCCESS: After attending Cuba’s National Theater School, Ana was cast in three Cuban co-productions with Spain. “My grandparents were Spanish, so I had a dual passport—it was the only way I had to get out.”

RIGHT HOOK: Director Jonathan Jakubowicz handpicked Ana to play the girlfriend of Roberto Duran (Edgar Ramirez) in this month’s boxing biopic Hands of Stone.

COMING TO AMERICA: “Moving to L.A. was hard. I had a career in Spain, and you have to forget your ego. I was a nobody again.”

NOBODY NO MORE: Also this month, she stars alongside Jonah Hill as Miles Teller’s girlfriend in the buddy comedy War Dogs. “I know it sounds like I’m playing all these wives and girlfriends, but they’re not waiting at home. I wear the pants.”

FUTURE UNIT: Next up, Ana joins the highly anticipated Blade Runner reboot, starring Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling. “It’s hard to explain to my parents what’s going on. You can’t compare Hollywood with Cuba. I didn’t even know I could dream this.”
