Ana de Armas is continuing her in-demand status with a slew of upcoming projects.

The 2023 Oscar nominee may have admitted that her provocative turn as Marilyn Monroe in Andrew Dominik’s “Blonde” wasn’t meant to be enjoyed, but her filmography has spoken for itself. Since breaking out stateside in 2015 erotic thriller “Knock Knock” opposite Keanu Reeves, de Armas has become a Bond girl, transformed into an American icon, and cemented her A-list status as an Academy Award nominee. She went on to appear in “Blade Runner 2049” and “Knives Out,” while also making a trio of films with co-star Chris Evans, including upcoming action comedy “Ghosted.”

The “No Time to Die” actress previously said that there is “no need” for a female take on James Bond, and perhaps it’s because as a certified action star, de Armas already is a Bond in her own right.

“There shouldn’t be any need to steal someone else’s character, you know, to take over,” de Armas said in July 2022. “What I would like is that the female roles in the Bond films, even though Bond will continue to be a man, are brought to life in a different way. That they’re given a more substantial part and recognition. That’s what I think is more interesting than flipping things.”

De Armas flipped the script during the Russo Brothers’ “The Gray Man” to deepen her character’s motivational arc, the “Deep Water” star said.

“The truth is, I never thought I was going to be an action actor. It wasn’t my thing,” de Armas told Elle. “You have to be careful, because it’s not what I want to put the focus on. This is not where I’m the most comfortable, to be honest, because I feel ridiculous. And it takes a lot of work.”
