Adria Arjona has this weird custom of uttering ‘F*** it, man’ before they say action while shooting. According to her belief, the ritualistic cursing gives her the power to perform. Even though she finished her high school in Miami and acting course at Lee Strasberg Theater & Film Institute, New York, Adria Arjona has Latin America in and around her persona. Being the daughter of the renowned Latin American musician, Ricardo Arjona, she is half Puerto Rican and half Guatemalan. As the legendary Guatemalan singer and songwriter, Arjona has sold over 20 million records and is the winner of international awards.
Adria had an unusual childhood on the road with her father. Traveling, seeing other cultures and knowing other people up-close has become her life since then. Back in her traveling days, she used to have breakfast in Guatemala and dinner in Mexico. In almost all her interviews Adria remembers those days and the father who gave her wings to fly. After the Lee Strasberg Theater & Film Institute days, she appeared in the CBS drama ‘Person of Interest.’ Two years later, she was picking up Spanish movies and small roles in projects like ‘Unforgettable.’ With the series ‘True Detective‘, she catapulted her into new heights. Her character alongside Colin Farrell and Taylor Kitsch, as a naive woman trapped in a cobweb of lies, became a huge hit.
Adria never looked back from there. She played popular characters in ‘Narcos,’ ‘Emerald City,’ ‘Pacific Rim: Uprising,’ and ‘Life of the Party.’ She is also famous for openly commenting on typecasting of Hispanic actors in Hollywood. So, you must be wondering what is the next Adria Arjona movie and tv show? Well, the good news is that we have a clear answer to that question. Here’s the list of upcoming films and shows of Adria Arjona scheduled to release in the near future. We can only hope that the new Adria Arjona projects would be as good as some of her recent ones.
