Ana made her acting debut in 2006 in Una rosa de Francia (The Rose of France). For several years she acted in Cuba but then decided to move to Spain.
I felt I wanted something more. I've always been very ambitious. Cuba was a good start, but I knew that it wouldn't be enough for a real career. I moved to Madrid with 200 quid in my pocket and decided to see what would happen.
"I didn't leave Cuba to make money or for a better life, but to grow as an actress, to get involved in more interesting projects," she recalled.
After a few auditions in Madrid, she landed a role in the soap "The Black Lagoon" (El internado). Since then her career has taken off and she has starred in several Spanish films and TV series. The film "Sex, parties and lies" (Mentiras y gordas) (by the way, she starred there with the famous actor Mario Casas) brought her fame and grossed four million euros and became the highest grossing film of 2009 in Spain.

In 2014 Ana moved to Los Angeles. By Ana's own admission, working in Hollywood was very different from shooting in Spain.
"In Hollywood, you had to start everything from scratch, no matter what you had done before. I didn't speak any English at all. And for me it was all a challenge to my ego. After an eight-year career in Spain I was again an unknown, I had to prove to the industry and to myself that I was capable of working in another language. It was a constant battle, because even American actresses sometimes have a hard time getting roles. But I was working with great people and I wasn't going to stop there," she said.
So, she studied the language very intensively for several months and soon landed a role in the movie Knock Knock, where she starred alongside Keanu Reeves.According to the actress herself, she was "discovered" by director Jonathan Jakubovic as he gave her her first international role - in 2016, De Armas was cast in the American film Hands of Stone. She starred in the film with Robert De Niro and, as she later admitted, the experience of working with him was invaluable to her.

Other famous works of Ana in Hollywood were War Dogs and Blade Runner 2049.
According to Ana, she agreed to the auditions with only one condition.
"I told my team that I do not want to audition for the role of Maria or Juana. I wanted to audition along with everyone else. It wasn't that I didn't want to go for those roles, it was that I didn't want to go just for those roles. I consider myself an actress, and it's weird for me to hear someone say "you're a Cuban actress" or "you're a Spanish actress." Everyone deserves the opportunity to fight for the role they want", she said.
Ana's talent was spotted by Blade Runner 2049 director Denis Villeneuve, who, she said, "is very fond of actors because he understands how hard it is to be an actor. Filming took place over five months in Budapest, where de Armas played a lot of sports.
"My role did not imply any special physical preparation, but I knew that I had five months of very intensive and emotional work so I wanted to feel strong and healthy," admitted the actress.
