❝ My childhood memories are amazing, I had freedom in every way, but I see everything from a different perspective now that I live outside.
❝ You can always go back to the place where you were comfortable, the place where you’re from.
❝ Moving to L.A. was hard. I had a career in Spain, and you have to forget your ego. I was a nobody again.
❝ The truth is that I’m not very disciplined with diets. In general, I do whatever makes me happy in life, and food makes me quite happy!
❝ When I moved to L.A. and had my first meeting with my agents, they asked me what I wanted for my career. And I didn’t speak English at the time, but I did say, ‘I wanna be Ryan Gosling as a woman.’ So I got very excited to play opposite him.
❝ Everyone deserves the opportunity to fight for the part they want.
❝ I want to do everything and beyond. I want to create impact.
❝ After having a career in Spain for eight years, I went back to being anonymous again, having to prove myself to the industry and myself, to prove I was capable of acting in a different language. It was a good challenge, and I can’t complain.
❝ I like vaporous clothing with flowers and colors.
❝ When I was 13, I auditioned for the theater school, and I was there for four years. In the meantime, I did my first three movies, all in Cuba.
❝ I don’t want to be in the spotlight, ever! I don’t know why I got in this profession!
❝ I think women, we are very interesting. We have a lot to say, and sometimes it’s frustrating how all the lead parts are for men.
❝ I want to show how strong and smart women are. We go through so much. We need to see that on screen. Those female parts are not many, but they are out there, and I have to find some. I want that chance.
❝ I’ve tried to choose roles where women are not just reacting or waiting for something to happen.
❝ I want to try as many different roles as I can. I want to do everything.
❝ I normally speak by moving my hands, and I’m very expressive with my face – something Cuban, I guess.
❝ It always depends on who you work with. It is not about the budget, not about the countries but about people.
