She is the daughter of Ana, who worked at the Ministry of Education, and Ramón, who was a bank manager, teacher, school principal, and town deputy mayor. She was born in Havana, Cuba and raised in the seaside town of Santa Cruz del Norte. On her mother’s side, her grandfather was from Guardo, Palencia, and her grandmother was from Valverde de Balboa, León, both in Spain. Ana moved to Madrid, Spain, when she was eighteen to pursue an acting career. She is also a Spanish citizen.

A picture of Ana with her parents can be seen here.

Ana, Catalina Sandino Moreno (for Maria Full of Grace, 2004), Yalitza Aparicio (for Roma, 2018), and Ariana DeBose (for West Side Story, 2021), are thus far the only actors of Latin-American descent born after 1980 to have been nominated for an acting Oscar, with Ariana having won.

    Her maternal grandmother could have Galician origins, her village is in an area where people speak this language (, does anyone found informations about her mother’s genealogy ?

  3. charicew says:

    She looks white but cubans and Puerto Ricans are not white. She has taino and african ancestors like every other cuban and Puerto Rican hispanic. The taino and african genetics combined override the white genes. No matter how white they look I always remind carribean latinos they are not white. I used to get offended when carribean latinos would say they’re not black as if being black is a bad thing but now I just let them be delusional.

    • jonasbttencourt says:

      Excuse me, but she’s problaby whiter than many spanish people in Spain nowdays. There’s literally zero evidence of non-euro ancestry on her background. She looks perfectly northern spaniard and canary islander, must be like a 50/50 or 60/40 situation. You do realise most of the people that are called ”latino” in north america would be considered white in the rest of the world, right? The avarage ”hispanic-american”, who is considered a ”minority race” is heavily european, most cuban americans for example are CLEARY white, like Marco Rubio, who’s over 90% euro, more than many southern ”WASPs”, not to mention Andy Garcia(also Cuban-A), Rita Moreno(PR-A), Benicio del Toro(also PR-A), Greg Giraldo(Colombian-A), etc…These are all white people for the rest of the world, the north american and northwestern european notion of race/ethnicity is a bad joke.

      • ashash says:

        Ana’s maternal grandparents are from Spain and there are plenty of Cubans who are over 90% European like Marco. It is what it is, but a lot of them are white. A lot of them are also mixed. A lot of them are also Black. I don’t know why people like to pretend that Latinos are all the same race, ethnicity, etc. They are diverse like the U.S.

      • Keepit_smooth says:

        Benicio Del Toro white??? Rita Moreno???? Man you must be blind to consider those people Caucasians

        • jonasbsjr says:

          The are many examples of european born and first to second generation euro-american people(even from the nordic countries) that look more or just as ”ethnic” as Del Toro and Moreno. Have you ever seen Charles Bronson, Alicia Vinkander, Simon Bird, Audrey Tautou, and Alissia Cara? If you have light skin, straight and/or waivy hair, small to medium sized nose and lips, and medim sized eyes, then guess white? YOU ARE WHITE! Generally some one with these traits i mentioned have more than 75% of white DNA(and keep in mind white is not just indigenous to Europe), so having one or two non-white great-grandpas is really inrelevant, cuz its a small bit of the genetic makeup and does not affect the overall appearance anyway. And i doubt Ana even has a non-white great-grandpa.

            “keep in mind white is not just indigenous to Europe”

            What? Where else in the world are “white” people indigenous to?

          • Oaken05 says:

            Are you serious? Western Asia. Hell, it’s where “white” people started out before peopling Europe. Is this a serious question?

          • muricansareallmutts says:

            Lol only ——— like — can say it you’re the —- who state Miranda Cosgrove is European hahaha cause you —– — —– instead to —— and claim what — ——— really are —–, mixed, ——-.
            They have strong non-Euro components that make them ——- like muricans and the other folks from the New World Anglos Countries who believe to be the whitest and —— of Earth-gee!
            Bronson being mainly Baltic Slav had an ancient heavy Asian component also cause thousand years ago Baltic Europe was invaded by Huns and Mongolians who gave them the Asiatic looking the —— almond/hooded shaped eyes, the flatter nose bridge on wider nostrils, the thick high cheeckbones, the large squared face, the big forehead; Vikander is Hispanic must have this recent or distant origin; Bird and Cara are totally Arabs; Tatou is Berid white Spaniard/Portuguese.
            Only Tatou is European the others not.

          • andrew says:

            Bronson is said to be Tatar after all. I may agree about Tautou this time, she kinda looks Spanish.

          • passingtime85 says:

            Oaken05 There’s a difference between “white” and caucasian/caucasoid. People would rarely confuse an Iranian for a Norwegian or a Yemenite for a Belgian. It’s a gradient scale based on geography, the further north and/or north west you get from the MENA/West Asia area the “whiter” the features become.

            At least that’s how I look at it.

    • NatureIsNurture says:

      “she looks white” yeah i wonder Why….dude don’t come here with you “hidden” racism talking like being white is special or some shit, tryna act like you pro black when all you say is white supremacy Bullshit at it’s finest “the white gene” fuck off, Everyone in this planet is “mixed” no such thing as a pure breed, so don’t come in here with that colonizer bullshit BASICALLY rejecting one of your own to make white ppl seem more special, it’s a heritage and a color stfu, “used to get offended” soo? get offended you white inbreed bitch, some latinos say they are not black because not all latinos are black, you closet white supremasist bitches will see an asian-latino and literally go “Why wont you admit you are a black” ….gtfo, white ppl in america are obsessed about race, meanwhile europeans don’t give a crap who is or isn’t “white person”.

      • Oaken05 says:

        One of the hilarious things, here, is watching the various racists, here, argue amongst themselves when they don’t agree 100% about which ethnic and/or racial groups ‘deserve’ to be disaparaged and which don’t. “Your comeback was almost perfect.” as if that poster was posting to appease you. lol

        You all recognize the cognitive dissonance of that, right? Of course your don’t. lol

        • andrew says:

          Sei più scema della capra invocata da Sgarbi. Anzi, la capra ha più cervello di te. Hai sbagliato sito qui non si “classificano” “razze” (?). Tornatene nell’immondizia dove vivi, puzzi di pecorino —–, lurida.

      • Blahby says:

        It’s because many white Americans worked hard to pass from black to white and now they think they make the rules about who is white or not. That’s why they’re so racist but the ones coming from Europe flirt with us. Black Americans think they’re in a competition with Latinos for white blood when many of us are mostly white and/or Native and they’re from Africa but hate it. All they need to do is a DNA test to see where they come from.

    • GabiLisbon says:

      “She has Taino and African heritage just like every other Cuban”. Really? Even the ones with European parents and grandparents? You mean simply by moving out of Europe they forfeit their whiteness? LOL. All of my paternal great grandparents and both of my mom’s parents were born in Europe, but I guess I’m not white simply because I was born in Brazil. What nonsense!

  4. italiano90 says:

    There’s no way muricansrallmutts is european if they think Ana De Armas looks “ethnic”. She would not stick out in Spain. She looks fully european

    Most cubans are multiracial, Ana is not one of them.

    • Raggy Bitt says:

      People in Spain look darker. What on earth are you talking about.
      Southern europeans are a dark and exotic people.
      Ana de Armas looks more northern european than Spanish.
      Antonia Banderas looks southern european.
      Adrola Dushi looks southern european.
      Rita Ora looks southern european.
      Martina Ivezaj looks southern european.
      Madalina Ghenea looks southern european.
      Not Ana de Armas.

    • Raggy Bitt says:

      Yes, the people that I used as examples in this list are all from southern Europe.
      Cause I know some complete idiot imbecile would say something like “next time shoe me actual southern europeans. Those are Taiwanese” or some stupid trash like that.

    • andrew says:


      Muricansareallmutts is an hairy ——— girl with a mental deficit. In this case she is claiming De Armas looks Romanian/Moldavian because there are more than one million of them in Italy and this stimulates her sick view of things.

    jesus you’re a ——

    • FLASHP01NT says:

      You can clearly see she’s not ethnically Cuban. The Armas family immigrated to Cuba from Spain. Anna De Armas, then, immigrated back to Spain, when she was 18, to pursue acting. The website should not have Cuba listed at all. Her moms last name is Caso, which is not of Spanish origin. If I had to guess, based on her appearance alone, I would say she is a mix of Spanish and Italian (on her fathers side) and Spanish and French (on her mothers side). Either way, it is most likely she is a mix of (mostly) Spanish, then (some) French, and (some) Northern Italian.
