Adria Arjona Torres (Spanish: [ˈaðɾja aɾˈxona]; born April 25, 1992) is a Puerto Rican actress. She played Dorothy Gale in the Oz book adaptation Emerald City (2017), an occultist in Good Omens (2019), and Bix Caleen in Andor (2022). She had supporting roles in the films Pacific Rim Uprising (2018), Life of the Party (2018), Triple Frontier (2019), 6 Underground (2019) and Morbius (2022), and a starring role in Hit Man (2023).

Early life

Arjona was born in San Juan, 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. Arjona reflected on her heritage during an interview with The New York Times: “There’s a big debate on the internet over whether I’m Puerto Rican or Guatemalan, and I’m very much both”. When she was a child, her father took her along on his tours, and she traveled often. At age 12, she moved to Miami with her mother after her parents divorced and lived there until she was 18, when she moved to New York City on her own. There, she worked as a waitress and hostess while studying acting at the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute.

Career

Arjona's early TV roles include Emily in season two of the anthology television series True Detective (2015) and Dani Silva in two episodes of the television series Person of Interest (in 2014 and 2015). She later starred in Emerald City as Dorothy Gale and played Anathema Device in the mini-series Good Omens. She appeared as a minor character in the film Triple Frontier, released in March 2019, and later in a starring role in the movie 6 Underground, released in December 2019.

She had a supporting role alongside Jason Momoa in the film Sweet Girl, which was released on Netflix in October 2021. In December 2018, she entered negotiations in the Sony spinoff Morbius to portray the film's female lead Martine Bancroft, and her involvement was confirmed at the end of January. The director of the film, Daniel Espinosa, felt that Arjona was perfect for the role stating: "It was clear—the part was hers". Upon its release in March 2022, the film received poor reviews from critics and was a box office bomb. In a review of the picture, David Rooney of The Hollywood Reporter wrote: "Arjona carries herself with confidence, but her character also gets a little lost in the carnage".

In 2020, she starred in the advertising campaign for Giorgio Armani's fragrance My Way. Later that year, Variety confirmed that Arjona had been cast in the Star Wars series Andor on Disney+. She joined previously announced series lead Diego Luna, who reprised his role from the 2016 film Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. In April 2021, Arjona was confirmed as the lead with Andy Garcia in the Warner Bros. remake of Father of the Bride. The remake was told through the lens of a sprawling Cuban American family. In October 2021, Arjona starred in and executive-produce the drama film Los Frikis, written and directed by Tyler Nilson and Michael Schwartz. Arjona then costarred with Glen Powell in the action comedy Hit man. She was involved in writing dialogue and storyboarding ideas for scenes. The film received praise from critics after its release in 2023, including regarding the acting.

She will next star in Blink Twice, the directorial debut of Zoë Kravitz, set for release in August 2024.

Personal life

She married her longtime boyfriend, Puerto Rican lawyer Edgardo Canales in Guatemala on August 31, 2019. They separated in 2023. On May 21, 2024, it was confirmed via Instagram that Arjona was in a relationship with actor Jason Momoa.
