She graduated from the Superior School of Theatre and Cinema in Lisbon, and quickly established herself as an in-demand actor on both television and film. Fluent in several languages, Ana was chosen by the Oscar-winning director Susanne Bier to play the role of ‘Constanca’ in the feature film drama FAMILY MATTERS.

Ana won the Portuguese Golden Globe Award and also the prestigious Sophia Award for Best Actress for her work on the feature film JOGO DE DAMAS, and in 2016, she added a Portuguese SPA Award for her performance in Bruno de Almeida’s CABARET MAXIME.
