She made her English acting debut in the series Warrior Nun, which debuted in 2020.

Including her native tongue, Alba Baptista speaks five different languages: English, Spanish, French, German and Portuguese.

Alba Baptista is also well known for being the wife of Captain America actor Chris Evans. The couple recently married on September 9, 2023, following an intimate ceremony, graced with friends and family in a private ceremony on Cape Cod, Massachusetts. 

The ceremony included several of the bridegroom’s costars from the Marvel superhero movies, such as Jeremy Renner, Chris Hemsworth, and our own Iron Man, Robert Downey Jr. It is therefore only fitting to say that handsome Chris Evans is officially off the market! It was rumoured that the couple dated for about a year before finally tying the knot.

The former boss of Joo, Manuel Qiang, returns to Portugal to establish a criminal business empire.
