(2013).

Acting career[edit]


Suárez made her acting debut in 2007, portraying the role of Julia Medina in the Antena 3 series The Boarding School (Spanish: El internado). She would star the series until its end in 2010, and earn Fotogramas de Plata Award for Best Actress for her performance,[1] as well as a Golden Nymph for Best Actress – Drama nomination at the Monte-Carlo Television Festival in 2009. In the meantime, Suárez appeared in full-length pictures Shiver (Eskalofrío), Cowards (Cowards), Brain Drain (Fuga de cerebros) and The Consul of Sodom (El cónsul de Sodoma), as well as in the short films Universes (Universos) and Hemisphere (Hemisferio).

In 2010, Suárez had her first starring role in Neon Flesh (Carne de neón) opposite Mario Casas. The film was eventually released in 2011. Suárez then starred, along with Antonio Banderas and Elena Anaya, Pedro Almodóvar's The Skin I Live In, for which she earned critical acclaim and a Goya Award for Best New Actress nomination. The same year, she appeared in the music video for Ladrones' song "Estoy prohibido".

Suárez then went on to star another Antena 3 series The Boat (El Barco), for which she won Fotogramas de Plata Award for Best Television Actress[2] and Ondas Award for Best Actress, as well as a nomination for TP de Oro Award for Best Actress. The Boat aired from 17 January 2011 to 21 February 2013.[3] In the meantime, Suárez starred two films that both premiered at the 2012 Málaga Film Festival — the comedy drama Winning Streak (The Pelayos), along with Daniel Brühl, Lluís Homar and Miguel Ángel Silvestre,[4] and Imanol Uribe's post-war drama Orange Syrup (Miel de naranjas), alongside Ángela Molina and Nora Navas.[5]


In 2013, Suárez appeared in I'm So Excited! (Los amantes pasajeros), an ensemble cast comedy film directed by Pedro Almodóvar.[6] At the 2013 Cannes Film Festival, Suárez was awarded with the Trophée Chopard for Female Relevation of the Year for her work in acting; the award was presented to her by Colin Firth.[7]

In 2014, Suárez portrayed Snow White in the eponymous episode of the television series Cuéntame un cuento (English: Tell Me a Story).[8] In 2015, she starred the miniseries Los nuestros (English: The Ours) opposite Hugo Silva;[9] the television series Carlos, rey emperador (English: Charles, King Emperor) as Isabella of Portugal; and films Perdiendo el Norte (English: Off Course), opposite her The Boarding School co-star Yon González, and My Big Night (Mi gran noche) by Álex de la Iglesia, for which she was nominated for Best Supporting Actress at the III Premios Feroz.[10]

Suárez appeared in music videos for "Estoy prohibido" by Ladrones in 2010 and "Emocional" by Dani Martín in 2014.[11]

In 2013, she became a spokesperson for the Italian lingerie label Intimissimi.[12]

Since February 2014, Suárez has been writing a blog for the Vogue España.[13]
