This fall, Ana de Armas is bringing a side of Marilyn Monroe we haven't ever seen—Norma Jean Mortenson.

The Cuban actress has embodied the emblem of the sexual revolution of the 1950s and early '60s to tell the story behind the graceful bombshell in Blonde.

The film, based on the bestseller by Joyce Carol Oates, reimagines the life of Monroe starting from her troubled early childhood to her untimely death in 1962. In the official trailer for Blonde, we see how the lines of fact and fiction are blurred to provide audiences with an inside look at the people behind the characters we worship.

"The film moves along with her feelings and her experiences," de Armas told Netflix Queue. "There are moments when we are inside of her body and mind, and this will give the audience an opportunity to experience what it was like to be Norma and Marilyn at the same time."

De Armas, who eagerly shared the official trailer for Blonde on Instagram, worked alongside Adrien Brody, Bobby Cannavale and director Andrew Dominik to bring this movie to life.

Her work on the role has received praise and much excitement from fans everywhere—all of them anxiously awaiting the film's release.

"A chameleon! What a wonderful job getting into this character," one fan wrote. "Congratulations Ana☀️✨✨✨✨✨✨," added another.

Blonde premieres on Netflix on September 28, 2022.
