Ana de Armas is a Cuban film and television actress. She is best known for her role in the 2015 film "Knock Knock," as well as starring as Carolina Leal Solis on the series "The Boarding School."
Ana Celia de Armas Caso was born on April 30, 1988 in Havana, Cuba, where she spent most of her youth. It was while living in Cuba that she began taking acting lessons at the age of just 14, attending the National Theater School of Cuba. Incredibly, only two years later she was starring in her first feature film as one of the lead roles in the 2006 crime drama "Una rosa de Francia." Further success soon followed, as within a year's time, she was also cast as Carolina Leal Solis on the TV mystery series "The Boarding School," a role she would go on to play for three years and over 50 episodes.
During her time on "The Boarding School," Ana didn't simply take a load off and ride out her regular gig. In the meantime, she starred in a variety of films and television series from roles in the films "Madrigal" and "Sex, Party and Lies" to appearing on the series "Revelados." By 2010, her "The Boarding School" days had ended, but she immediately jumped onto another series called "Hispania, la leyenda."
Of course, even with all of her success from a very early age, it wasn't until the year 2015 that Ana started to become famous in the U.S. It was through her role in the horror thriller "Knock Knock" starring Keanu Reeves that she really started to garner national attention. Once she signed on to star with the legendary actor again in the film "Daughter of God" the very same year, it was only a matter of time before she started getting the recognition such a talented and beautiful woman as herself deserved.
