Biography

Jeunesse
Alice Braga est la fille de Ana Maria Braga et Ninho Moraes. L'actrice Sônia Braga, nommée trois fois aux Golden Globes, est sa tante. Elle est la cousine du mannequin Daniela Braga. Outre le portugais, sa langue maternelle, elle parle anglais et espagnol.

Elle n'a que huit ans lorsqu'elle joue dans une publicité de yogourt, le réalisateur étant un ami de sa mère.


Carrière
Débuts et révélation
En 2002, elle se fait connaître mondialement grâce à son rôle dans le drame d'action La Cité de Dieu de Fernando Meirelles et Kátia Lund, adapté du roman du même nom écrit par l'auteur brésilien Paulo Lins en 1997.

Elle confirme cette percée grâce à Bahia, ville basse, un drame élu meilleur film lors des Grande Prêmio do Cinema Brasileiro, qui lui vaut plusieurs citations et récompenses dont le titre de meilleure actrice lors du Festival international du film de Rio de Janeiro et un Prêmio Contigo.

Elle connait ensuite un succès d'envergure en donnant la réplique à Will Smith pour le blockbuster Je suis une légende, qui amassera près de 600 millions de dollars de recettes dans le monde, en 2007.

C'est ainsi qu'elle enchaîne les productions hollywoodiennes, l'année suivante : d'abord le drame sportif Redbelt de David Mamet dans lequel elle partage la vedette aux côtés de Chiwetel Ejiofor, Tim Allen et Emily Mortimer, puis, elle seconde Julianne Moore et Mark Ruffalo dans le drame de science fiction Blindness. En 2009, elle renoue avec une production brésilienne pour le rôle titre du drame Cabeça a Prêmio, tout en participant au thriller Droit de passage porté par Harrison Ford, une production sur fond d'immigration clandestine.

En 2010, elle est le premier rôle féminin du film d'action Repo Men porté par le tandem Jude Law et Forest Whitaker, mais elle incarne surtout l'héroïne de la grosse production Predators, troisième volet de la saga Predator, il fait suite à Predator de John McTiernan (1987) et Predator 2 de Stephen Hopkins (1990).

Dès lors, l'actrice alterne entre productions américaines et brésiliennes. C'est ainsi qu'elle donne la réplique à Anthony Hopkins dans Le Rite, qu'elle participe à la romance Sur la route qui est présentée au Festival de Cannes 2012, tout en acceptant de jouer les seconds rôles notamment dans Os Amigos, drame indépendant qui lui vaut une énième citation lors de la cérémonie des Cinema Brazil Grand Prize et en rejoignant le film de science-fiction Elysium dont Matt Damon est la vedette, un succès.

En 2014, elle renoue avec le drame en portant le film Latitudes, s'essaie à la comédie potache pour Kill Me Three Times et séduit la critique avec le drame historique Muitos Homens Num. La même année, elle est aussi l'héroïne du western dramatique Ardor aux côtés de Gael García Bernal.


Reine du Sud et cinéma
En 2016, elle accepte, pour la première fois, d'intégrer la distribution principale d'une série télévisée pour Queen of the South, une création de Joshua John Miller. Une production élue meilleure série télévisée dramatique lors des Imagen Awards, qui lui vaut sa première citation en tant que meilleure actrice de télévision.

Elle ne délaisse pas pour autant le grand écran et tourne aux côtés de Woody Harrelson et Liam Hemsworth pour le drame The Duel, elle rejoint la large distribution du film fantastique Le Chemin du pardon et remplace Rosario Dawson dans le rôle du Dr Cecilia Reyes pour le spin-off attendu d'X-men, New Mutants.

Michael Kovak (Colin O'Donoghue), disillusioned with his past job as a mortician, decides to enter a seminary school and renounce his vows upon completion, thereby getting a free college degree. Four years have passed, and Michael is being ordained to the rank of deacon at the seminary. After his ordination, he writes a letter of resignation to his superior, Father Matthew, citing a lack of faith. Father Matthew (Toby Jones), apparently wanting to talk to Michael, attempts to catch up to him on the street. He trips as he steps over a curb, causing a cyclist to swerve into the path of an oncoming van. The young cyclist, Sandra (Marija Karan), is critically injured. Seeing Michael's clerical garb, she asks him for absolution before her last breath. Initially hesitant, Michael is unable to refuse, comforting her and performing a blessing ritual to absolve her of her sins. Seeing how calmly Michael handled the situation, Father Matthew tells Michael that he is called to be a priest despite his resignation. He also tells Michael that with the rise in demonic possessions every year, the Church needs more exorcists and says that he has the potential to become one. Father Matthew wants to send him to the Vatican in Rome, so he can attend an exorcism class taught by his friend Father Xavier (Ciarán Hinds). Michael finally accepts after Father Matthew tells him that the Church might convert his scholarship into a student loan that would cost $100,000 if his immediate resignation stood. If Michael attends the exorcism class and still wants to resign afterwards, then they will discuss matters (hinting that he may be free to leave).
