Biography

Alice Braga often portrays women onscreen who are running for their lives yet have the guts, drive and intelligence to overcome dire situations. The Brazilian-born actress captivated audiences as one of the last human beings left on Earth - along with Will Smith - in the post-apocalyptic thriller "I Am Legend" (2007). Braga's acting résumé also included provocative independent dramas, but her charisma and ability to play survivors worked best in the science fiction genre. She costarred with Jude Law in the action thriller "Repo Men" (2010) and filled Arnold Schwarzenegger's combat boots in "Predators" (2010), a reboot of the box-office hit "Predator" (1987), and a film that established Braga as one of the most sought-after action stars - male or female - of her time.
