The series, created by Álex Pina, who previously wrote Vis a Vis, is characterized by its dark humor, its anticapitalist discourse and the importance of women.

It first aired in Spain on Antena 3 and was later made available internationally through Netflix.

For the first time in her career, Úrsula Corberó is acclaimed by the critics and the audience who see in this part a "before and after" in her career, in rupture with her previous roles.

Úrsula CorberóShe was nominated for Best Actress in a TV Series at the Premios Feroz and won an Atv Award for Best Actress.

Úrsula CorberóHer passion for the world of fashion has led to the opening of a clothing and accessories store called Ursololita . She shares this passion with her mother who also participates in the project.

The name of the store has a special meaning - It combines her name and the name of her dog, Lolita.

She was born in Barcelona on a hot day in August 1989 and although she currently resides in Madrid, for professional reasons, she still feels passion for her homeland.

In several interviews she has confessed that she loves to walk through the Gothic quarter of Barcelona, while visiting the ice cream parlors and chocolate shops that her grandmother took her to as a child.

The young woman has a lot of vitality and a large part of her uses it to train . She was a real runner, but she had to quit because she found she lost too much weight and that affected her health.

To stay in shape, she exchanged the asphalt for the gym where she performs various routines to avoid boredom. She combines sport with a very balanced diet, but of course, from time to time, she gives herself a few whims.

Úrsula CorberóCorberó is a Catalan who does not consider herself a separatist. She supports both sides. Nevertheless, following the outcome of the 2017 Catalan independence referendum, she tweeted that she was "heartbroken" by police violence.

Úrsula Corberó“Snake Eyes,” the third live-action film based on the “G.I. Joe” toy line, will focus on the origins of the fan-favorite character known for his masked face, black commando uniform and ninja training.

Robert Schwentke, the director of “Red” and “R.I.P.D.,” is set to direct “Snake Eyes” for Paramount and Allspark Pictures, in association with Skydance. The film will be released on Oct. 16, 2020.

“Beauty and The Beast” screenwriter Evan Spiliotopoulos wrote the screenplay, and Lorenzo Di Bonaventura and Brian Goldner are producing. Jeff Waxman is executive producing. Hasbro, and Skydance are co-producing, while MGM is co-financing.

The story centers on Snake Eyes’ origins where he tries to become a member of the Arashikage Clan, a ninja clan based in Japan. According to “G.I. Joe vs. Cobra: The Essential Guide,” the Arashikage worked as shadowy assassins for generations, using deception to earn their keep as ninjas, as well as developing a reputation for being able to perform impossible tasks.

“G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra” grossed more than $300 million worldwide back in 2009 on a reported production budget of $175 million, not including prints and advertising.

The 2013 sequel “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as Road Block grossed $375.7 million on a budget of $155 million.

Úrsula CorberóChanning Tatum, who played Duke in the first two films, was killed off early in “Retaliation” after complaining to Howard Stern how much he hated the role.

Storm Shadow was previously played Byung-Hun Lee in “The Rise of Cobra” and “Retaliation.” She is represented by WME and Garay Talent.

The actress recounts the incredible and difficult life of her mother and sister, her role models and the people who inspire her the most.

The actress celebrated on March 8th, International Women's Day, telling the stories of overcoming by Esther and Mònica, her mother and sister, the most important women in her life.

"My mother got pregnant with my sister when she was 17 years old. When her tummy began to show, it became the plague of the neighborhood, she was left without friends and even though she was a brilliant student, they threw her out of school because she was a bad example for the others girls,".

"Far from letting that affect her, she put a good face on life. She was always happy, on Saturday afternoons she went to the disco alone and got on the podium to dance non-stop with her hype, after two hours she returned home."

"And she never stopped fighting to move forward with her family - she has worked as a corset, as a florist, as a fishmonger, she has cleaned houses, she has been a dental clinic assistant, she has sold mattresses - but the greatest sacrifice was made so that Úrsula, who was only 6 years old, could fulfill her dream of being an actress."

Úrsula Corberó"She begged her boss to give her the afternoon off and told him to deduct it from her salary so she could take me to the castings.

We lived 62 kilometers from Barcelona and my mother didn't have a car or a license, we hitchhiked in town so they could take us to the next town and there we would catch a train that left us in Barcelona."

"After the subway. The queues for the publicity castings were hellish and for a year they didn't choose me for any advertisement, but chose whoever followed me. An effort by her mother that the actress has not forgotten and that tries to give it back every day by being a better actress, but even more so, a better woman in the world."

If Esther's story of struggle has captivated us, Corberó still goes on to tell about the vicissitudes that her sister has had to face, whose greatest effort was to move forward in life with her son.

"She has worked non-stop all her life, going through very critical moments with a child to feed, desperate to get a job, she raised money from where she could and trained to be a tanatopractor, but it turns out that women were not well regarded there and they put problems in her way for everything."

"They never gave her work although she finished her practices with outstanding grades.", Corberó believes she has arrived where she is thanks to the claw that I have inherited from both of them."

Úrsula CorberóÚrsula Corberó Is a Natural for Hollywood’s Badass Action Roles

Úrsula Corberó was at a New Year’s Eve party in Uruguay with her boyfriend when a couple of strangers approached the beautiful, but little-known actress at that time, to proclaim her “a goddess.”

She remarked to her boyfriend that it was such a coincidence that "the only four people who’ve seen La Casa de Papel were at the party,” Corberó, at that point had only ever worked on small projects in her native Spain.

However, in actuality Corberó’s admirers hadn’t seen La Casa de Papel, but had seen Money Heist - the Netflix re-edited version of the series that came and went without much ado on Antena 3, a local Spanish network, back in 2017.

After she wrapped shooting Money Heist, Corberó barely gave the series another thought. Meanwhile, it had become an overnight sensation - but not in Spain.

The series was suddenly a full-on hit across the globe. Within four months, Money Heist had become the most-watched non-English series in Netflix history - a “cultural phenomenon,” as the film streaming giant put it in a 2020 documentary about the craze.

Úrsula CorberóAnd Corberó was a key part of it: Her beloved character Tokyo is a fan favorite among the motley crew of bank robbers at its center, and narrator of all the action.

And yet, if you’re American, there’s a good chance you won’t recognize the face currently front and center at the top of the Netflix homepage, signaling the long-awaited arrival of the first part of Money Heist’s fifth and final season. (Antena 3’s plans to call it quits after two seasons, citing lack of audience and interest, remain a distant memory.)

Corberó only recently began making a splash among English-speaking audiences, having learned the language herself about two years ago.

Not that you’d be able to tell from her Hollywood debut alongside Henry Golding in the action-hero movie Snake Eyes earlier this summer.

Corberó had even herself fooled. Speaking over Zoom from her apartment in Madrid, she recalls her reaction upon seeing her final performance: “Who is this person? You liar!”

Corberó, who grew up near Barcelona, was just six years old when she had realized that acting was her “trade.”

Úrsula CorberóAt least, that’s what her mom tells her; as a child, she was evidently so convinced that her mom and dad, a fishmonger and carpenter, had set off on a serious quest to track down a child talent agency.

In 2002, at age 13, Corberó finally made the leap from advertising to acting. It took a number of years and small Spanish-language TV shows, but she finally made a splash as a troubled adolescent in the racy teen drama series Física o Química in 2011.

More increasingly high-profile series followed, including the period drama Isabel and the sitcom Anclados, costarring Rossy de Palma.

Apart from Money Heist, her highest-profile role to most Americans is the music video she self-shot for “Un Día,” J. Balvin’s collab with Tainy, Dua Lipa, and Bad Bunny, while in lockdown.

Corberó has always stayed booked and busy, but until recently, this only ever occurred in Spain.

Netflix baffled the Money Heist cast and crew with the news that they would begin shooting season 3 on location in Thailand, not the makeshift version they’d previously created in Madrid.

Úrsula CorberóThe changes in location and production level felt monumental, but were nothing compared to what the actor found when she stepped onto the Snake Eyes set in Vancouver.

She literally couldn’t understand what was going on. “I had, like, two sentences: ‘Yeah, sure, of course,’ or ‘Oh, yeah,’” she recalls with a laugh. If those failed, she’d simply smile and nod.

Naturally, that made for quite the challenge when it came to filming—especially because Corberó plays the Baroness, the terrorist group Cobra’s resident badass.

Unfortunately, Corberó had the most difficulty understanding the film’s director, Robert Schwentke. Ever mystified by his comments after each take, she’d simply try something different each time. “I was like, I don’t know what he wants exactly, so I’m just going to try something else.”

Her efforts paid off. Snake Eyes ends perfectly poised for just what producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura has told Corberó he has in mind: a Baroness spin-off.



Úrsula Corberó“It’s not a fact, but a lot of people are talking about it,” the actress says, clearly thrilled. The Baroness is not, as Corberó put it, “a huge character” in the reboot of the G.I. Joe franchise (Sienna Miller played her in the original), but the demand is clearly there.

When watching the film in theaters, the audience full-on cheered each time she pulled a move like digging her towering stilettos into the body of a man she’d just knocked unconscious.

“I still want to go a little bit more deeply with her,” along the lines of a Black Widow, Cruella, or Harley Quinn, Corberó says.

“I think it’s really nice to see the human parts of these villains, and these female characters with such powerful attitudes.”

Corberó is grateful to have already had experience with such a role in the form of Tokyo, whom she describes as “a little bit more chill, a little more mature” in the show’s final chapter.

There is, however, one thing Corberó won’t miss about playing Tokyo: her weekly visits to the physical therapist.

“The [Money Heist] characters are always in this constant violent behavior, and that’s not good for your neck, your head or your back,” she says with a laugh.

“The producers, the creators - they’re rock n’ roll. They just want to do as much as possible, as risky as possible, and sometimes you just want to cry.”

Despite having actually feared for her life on occasion, Corberó, for her part, has no regrets: “You know that you are taking the risk, but that’s part of its magic.”

The role of the Baroness hasn’t been without its own physical demands: Those stilettos may look glamorous, but took such a toll on Corberó’s back that she soon had trouble simply getting out of a chair.

The actor is ready to take the Baroness’s action scenes to Tokyo level, but first up, she’s tackling something just as, if not even more, difficult:

“My goal is to speak English without getting tired,” she says with a laugh. “That is my goal in life right now.”

In 70% of India’s villages, non-Dalits will not eat or drink with Dalits. It is this societal distinction, and the discrimination that accompanies it, that has led us to adopt the Clay Cup™ as our symbol. Traditionally, when Dalits enter a tea shop and request a cup of tea, they are served in a clay cup rather than a glass or metal cup that other receive. After drinking their tea, they are expected to crush the cup on the ground so that no other person risks being polluted by their cup. Today, clay cups are commonly used in many parts of India and still convey Dalit “untouchability.”

Babel

Babel is inarguably one of the best films of 2006. Director Alejandro González Iñárritu and his co-writer, Guillermo Arriaga weave together the disparate strands of their story into a finely hewn fabric by focusing on what appear to be several equally incongruent characters: an American (Brad Pitt) touring Morocco with his wife (Cate Blanchett) become the focus of an international incident also involving a hardscrabble Moroccan farmer struggling to keep his two young sons in line and his family together. A San Diego nanny, her employers absent, makes the disastrous decision to take their kids with her to a wedding in Mexico. And a deaf-mute Japanese teen (the extraordinary and beautiful Rinko Kikuchi) deals with a relationship with her father and the world in general that's been upended by the death of her mother.
