Bond Girl Ana de Armas transforms into tragic screen legend Marilyn Monroe as she continues filming new biopic Blonde

She is set to take on the role of Daniel's Craig's new love in the highly-anticipated Bond film No Time To Die. 

And Ana de Armas looked effortlessly chic as she transformed into the 1950s icon Marilyn Monroe to continue filming for her current drama Blonde which is based on the 1999 fictionalised chronicle of the late star by Joyce Carol Oates.

The actress, 31, was in her element as she slipped a black jumper and a pair of grey chequered trousers to continue filming for the new Netflix drama.

The star hid her natural brunette locks underneath a short blonde wig, which was swept back to one side with a black clip, while on set. 

Ana completed her look by adding a touch of eye-catching 1950s make-up, which included black winged eyeliner and red lipstick.

She was later spotted appearing calm and relaxed as she sat in the driver's seat of a 1950s style Ford with a colleague. 

The film's director Andrew Dominik is said to have been developing the movie for the last several years until he settled on Ana to take on the role of Marilyn.

Collider reports that Andrew wrote the script and Brad Pitt is set to produce the film after previously starring in the director's The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford and Killing Them Softly.

Blonde is a fictionalised chronicle of Marilyn Monroe, real name Norma Jeane Mortenson, through her life from an aspiring star to a Hollywood actress with her heartbreak and tragedies documented.

Ana appeared to confirm she would be playing Marilyn in June when she shared a picture of the late star on her Instagram and captioned it: 'Happy Birthday Norma Jeane ♥️ #marilynmonroe.'

Earlier this month, she paid tribute to Marilyn on the anniversary of her death on August 5, by sharing another snap of the late star.

She captioned it: 'Thinking of you today, Norma Jeane. You’ve never been more present and closer to my heart. Thank you. ♥️ #MarilynMonroe #Blonde.' 

In April, Ana was confirmed as one of the cast members of the 25th installment in the Bond franchise, which will see Daniel, 51, play 007 for the fifth and final time.

Born in humble beginnings in Santa Cruz del Norte, Ana attended the National Theatre School of Cuba at the age of 12, and made her acting debut in the 2006 Spanish film, Una rosa de Francia.

The actress made the successful crossover to Hollywood in 2015 alongside Keanu Reeves in Knock Knock and then went on to work with Ryan Gosling and Robin Wright in 2017's Blade Runner 2049.
