Ana de Armas Shares Amazing "Sergio" Makeup Transformation Video
Sergio star Ana de Armas shared a behind-the-scenes look at the new Sérgio Vieira de Mello biopic.
On Wednesday, Ana de Armas, 31, posted a behind-the-scenes video to Instagram of her makeup transformation from the set of the upcoming biographical drama Sergio. The movie, which is scheduled to be released on Netflix on Apr. 17, is already getting a lot of buzz. It revolves around the life of Sérgio Vieira de Mello, a Brazilian United Nations diplomat who was praised for his ongoing fight for worldwide human rights, and was killed in a hotel bombing in Iraq in Aug. 2003. De Armas plays UN official Carolina Larriera, the romantic partner of De Mello, who is portrayed by Narcos star Wagner Moura.
The video De Armas posted on Instagram shows her all banged up; so it seems to be from a pivotal scene in Sergio after the bombing. The Cuban actress also shared a few photos of the makeup transformation, courtesy of makeup artist Martín Macías Trujillo, who was, she wrote in her native Spanish, "working his magic."
The Sergio trailer, which was released earlier this month, shows Larriera trying to convince De Mello to lead a safer, calmer life with her. And just this week, on Jan. 28, the film had its premiere at the prestigious Sundance Film Festival, where De Armas is being hailed by critics as "the glue of the film" who "instills depth unto her character."
2020 is gearing up to be a big year for De Armas: Not only does she have Sergio hitting Netflix in April and Deep Water heading for theaters in November, but she also has her upcoming stint as the new Bond girl in No Time to Die (which will be released in April) and she plays Marilyn Monroe in the upcoming Netflix biopic Blonde (which does not yet have a release date). "I never thought I was going to be a Bond girl. I never thought I was going to be Marilyn Monroe," she told C magazine in Oct. 2019. "To even think that I was going to work in anything to begin with was pushing it. … I never thought I was going to work this much."
