Ana de Armas says she initially felt the 2019 murder mystery, Knives Out, was not the right film for her.
In an interview with a leading magazine, Ana shared, “I really pay attention to what that little description is. I’m sure whoever did it wasn’t thinking about what that meant, but for me I was just like, ‘Oh no, I’m not doing this!’ What do you mean — caretaker, Latina, pretty?'”
She added that, “Things could have been very different,” if the film’s director Rian Johnson had not sent across a more precise visualization of her character Martha.
Further talking about her character, Ana added, “My character was a diamond. When they sent the whole script and I read the whole thing I realised ‘oh my gosh I have to do this'”
