Celebrating Ana de Armas.

This week’s Sunday night movie, The Informer, boasts a great cast that we can’t wait to watch: Joel Kinnaman, Rosamund Pike, Common, and Clive Owen. But we’re pointing our spotlight on the rising star in Hollywood: Ana de Armas. Here are a few reasons why we adore her.

She’s an awesome actress
Having established herself as an actress in Spain and her native Cuba, it wasn’t long before de Armas set her sights on Hollywood. The actress first made waves as the mischievous but ultimately deadly Bel in Knock Knock alongside Keanu Reeves. She then went on to star with Jonah Hill, Miles Teller, and Bradley Cooper in War Dogs, followed by a role in the acclaimed Blade Runner 2049. But it was in 2019’s Knives Out that she really got a chance to shine as the wouldn’t-hurt-a-fly, couldn’t-tell-a-lie Marta Cabrera.

She loves dogs
Need we say more, other than that her new pooch is just the cutest!

She’s a Bond girl
Like her co-star in The Informer, Rosamund Pike, de Armas is also a Bond girl. Unfortunately, we haven't been able to watch her as CIA agent Paloma just yet. Thanks to Covid the release of the latest Bond film, No Time to Die, has been beset by numerous delays and we have to wait until October to finally watch it. When that month finally rolls around, we just know we’re going to love watching her performance.

Watch Ana de Armas in your Sunday night movie, The Informer, on 7 February at 20:30 on M-Net channel 101.
