Ana de Armas is set to be the newest Bond girl with her role opposite Daniel Craig in Bond 25.
And while her character’s personality and look is as yet unconfirmed, we’re kind of hoping it involves a bald cap – as Ana has proved she can work that daring look like a pro.
The 31-year-old had fans and friends pleading with her to shave her head as she had a transformative makeover while on a break from Bond filming
Ana posted a selfie wearing the expertly applied bald cap while on set in Los Angeles, writing: ‘Going full (alien emoji) before going full (lips emoji).’
And while we think a shaved head is a baller look for anyone, Ana’s bare noggin accentuated her doll-like features even more.
Hair stylist Jenny Cho commented: ‘You’re so beautiful you don’t even need hair!!!’, while actress Gaia Weiss added: ‘Wow it actually suits you.’
Ana didn’t reveal what the drastic makeover was for, but with the platinum wig in the background, perhaps the Cuban-Spanish star is taking the role of Marilyn Monroe after all.
The actress, best known for playing Joi in Blade Runner 20149, is director Andrew Dominik’s first choice to play Marilyn in Blonde, a movie based on Joyce Carol Oates’ novel.
Blonde follows ‘the talented Norma Jeane Mortenson as she blossoms into movie star Marilyn Monroe. But after a series of failed relationships and heartbreaking tragedy, she spirals into drug addiction and mental instability.’
However, before Ana possibly plays the legendary bombshell, she has Bond 25 to get out of the way.
Ana will play Paloma, believed to be 007’s love interest, in the as yet untitled James Bond film.
She joins Lea Seydoux, Rami Malek, Naomie Harris, Ralph Fiennes, Ben Whishaw and Lashana Lynch – who is set to be the first female 007 – in the cast, but the project has been plagued by problems from the get go.
Director Danny Boyle dropped out of the project months after joining, to be replaced by Cary Fukunaga.
Then, production was suspended for two weeks in May after Craig, 51, had to undergo minor surgery after sustaining an ankle injury on set.
In June, filming went into lockdown after a ‘controlled explosion’ injured a crew member and caused damage to the set at Pinewood Studios – leading to a visit from Health and Safety.
And the hits just keep coming, as it’s been claimed Rami Malek and Daniel Craig can’t find any time to film their scenes together, as Malek – who plays the film’s villain – will have commenced a new project that clashes with Bond 25 now that certain shooting days have been pushed back.
Grace Jones’ cameo is also believed to have been axed after the music legend walked off set after realising how few lines she had.
Despite all the issues, producers are still adamant that Bond 25 will be set for release in April 2020.
