Adria Arjona talks about Hit Man and how the production surprised her.

How is that?

I’m on the shy and quirkier side. I’m not a murderer either! Madison is also a little more strategic than I am – I don’t make a lot of strategic decisions like, “Oh, this movie is going to make me a star, and then I’m going to make this movie” – my brain doesn’t work that way. Sometimes I wish I did.

You have “Blink twice“, Zoë Kravitz’s directorial debut in August. You are in the Amazon Prime series “criminal.” You star in and executive produce “Los Frikis,” which is based on true events about teenagers who inject themselves with HIV to escape persecution in Cuba in the 1990s. Is there more?

The second season of “Andor” will hopefully be released next year. I think people will freak out when they see that.

And then I haveEl Sombreron“, and it’s the first time I’ll be working with a Guatemalan director and shooting in my country of origin – I’m half Guatemalan and half Puerto Rican, and I feel half and half.

I was a dancer in middle and high school. Would you like to return to the theater one day?

I really want to go! There’s a theater opportunity in Miami that I might do this fall; It’s a one-woman show called “The Second Woman.” The idea of ​​being in the theater is very nice. When I was studying at the Lee Strasberg Theater and Film Institute in New York and auditioning for theater, there weren’t a lot of opportunities for Latin American actresses — the plays by Horton Foote or Tennessee Williams were all white women, and they weren’t that open. To hire out of that, at least when I was auditioning. Now, it’s very different.

What are your hobbies when not acting?

I love boxing. I feel like I can be an entrepreneur in my next life; I like to fix things, ceilings and plastering walls. I also pick up guitar now and no one told me! My dad’s not happy, he’s like, “Are you kidding me, buddy? I begged you to play when I was a kid, and now you want to play?”
