Alba Flores is an actress. She is known for her roles in Money Heist and Vis a Vis.
Alba is the daughter of Spanish Romani musician and composer Antonio González Flores and Ana Villa, a theatrical producer. She is a first cousin of Spanish actress Elena Furiase.
Alba’s paternal grandfather was Antonio González (born Antonio González Batista, the son of Antonio González Díaz and Antonia Batista Jiménez), a dancer, musician, and composer, also known as El Pescaílla. Alba’s grandfather Antonio was born in Barcelona, Catalonia, and was Romani. Alba’s great-grandfather Antonio was the son of Manuel González, and of a mother surnamed Díaz.
Alba’s paternal grandmother was Spanish singer, dancer and actress, Lola Flores (María Dolores “Lola” Flores Ruiz, the daughter of Pedro Flores Pinto and Rosario Ruiz Rodríguez). Lola was born in Jerez de la Frontera, Cádiz. She is sometimes said to have Romani ancestry through her own maternal grandfather. It is not clear if this is accurate. She is also described as being of only Spanish descent. Pedro was born in La Palma del Condado, Huelva, the son of Juan Flores and Dolores Pinto. Rosario was born in Sanlúcar de Barrameda, Cádiz, the daughter of Manuel Ruiz Dorado, a man of possibly Romani descent, and of María Rodríguez Misa.
