Alba Baptista started in the show business at the age of 15, but it was never her intention to become an actress. She was cast in a short movie, Alba did not know what to expect, but the experience of working in the film was enough for her to fall in love with the art form. The idea of being someone else was both unique and unforgettable for the actress, which led her to pursue a career in acting.

The Ava actress started acting while she was still in school, and at the time, the whole thing was like a game. She did not have a plan to forge a career in acting; all she wanted to do was have fun on set and go to school. But with age came clarity, Alba realized professional focus was needed to carry on acting into her adult life. That professional focus manifested into distinguishable work, and she was awarded for her skill and passion on screen.

For nearly a decade, she has been in the film industry, mainly juggling her time between Portuguese soap and award-winning movies. But when asked about her future, the actress plainly says she is not interested in making it in Hollywood. The Warrior Nun actress’s real focus is on European cinema, and if by any chance she gets the opportunity to work in a Western flick, she would consider it.

Alba Baptista was born on 10 July 1997 in Lisbon, Portugal. She was an impulsive child who did not like to color between the lines, a free-spirited soul; Alba wanted to learn from experience and not just focus on the theory. She expressed herself, not by doing what she was asked to do, but what she felt she was supposed to do, something she carried with her in her acting career.

The Ava actress attended ACT school in Lisbon to sharpen her skill as an actress but left soon after. She was never meant for the confines of an acting school, from the first scene she shot in a movie, Alba knew she was meant for the world of show business. But even with her rising name and fame, the actress keeps herself humble and manages fame like a pro.
