Adria Arjona Torres (born April 25, 1992) is an American actress and model.

Early life[edit]

Arjona was born in Puerto Rico, and lived in Mexico City until she was twelve. Her mother, Leslie Torres, is Puerto Rican, and her father, Ricardo Arjona, is a Guatemalan singer-songwriter in Latin America. As a child, she traveled often. Her father took her along on his tours, allowing her to experience art, music, and a bohemian lifestyle since she was born[citation needed]. At age 12, she moved to Miami and lived there until she was 18, when she moved to New York City on her own.[1] There she worked as a waitress and a hostess while studying acting at the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute.[2]

Career[edit]

She is best known for her roles as Emily in season two of the HBO anthology television series True Detective (2015) and as Dani Silva in two episodes of the CBS television series Person of Interest (in 2014 and 2015), as Anathema Device in the Amazon Prime mini-series Good Omens and for voicing the character of Ramirez in the popular game Fortnite. She starred in the NBC television series Emerald City as Dorothy Gale.[3][4]

In December 2018, Arjona entered negotiations in Sony’s Spider-Man spinoff Morbius to portray the film's female lead, Martine Bancroft; her involvement was confirmed at the end of January.[5]
