Ana de Armas, the Cuban-Spanish actress, is set to star in the upcoming John Wick spinoff, Ballerina, which is directed by Len Wiseman. However, the actress has previously mentioned her hesitancy to continue taking on roles in action movies after completing her work on Ballerina.
The John Wick franchise has taken the world by storm since the first movie’s release in 2014. The intense and stylish action scenes, coupled with Keanu Reeves’ enigmatic portrayal of the titular character, have made the movies a fan-favorite. With the franchise’s continued success, it’s no surprise that a spinoff is in the works.
Ballerina tells the story of a young assassin seeking revenge for the death of her family. The movie will showcase de Armas in a physically demanding role, which will undoubtedly require her to perform some intense stunts. However, in an interview with a media outlet, de Armas shared her thoughts on potentially retiring from action movies after the completion of Ballerina.
The actress explained that while she loves being part of action movies and enjoys the physical challenges they present, she wants to explore other genres as an actress. She stated that she wants to keep growing and challenging herself in different roles, which is why she has hesitations about taking on more action-oriented roles.
De Armas’ comments highlight an important aspect of an actor’s journey – growth and diversity. It’s essential for actors to push their boundaries and challenge themselves in different roles and genres to continue growing as artists. While action movies can be exciting and physically demanding, it’s important not to be pigeonholed into one type of role.
