‘Narcos’ star Ana de la Reguera has been cast to play a nurse in the movie adaptation of EVERYTHING, EVERYTHING.
Ana de la Reguera (Narcos) will be joining Amandla Stenberg and Nick Robinson in the film adaptation of Nicola Yoon’s bestselling book Everything, Everything. The movie is about a girl named Maddy (Stenberg) who’s allergic to practically everything and thus confined to her home. But she really starts to comprehend life outside of her “bubble” when she meets and falls in love with the new boy next door, Olly (Robinson).
De la Reguera will be playing Carla, Maddy’s nurse, friend, and confidante. She’s one of the two people that Maddy has contact with on a regular basis. Carla is pretty much the one who helps Maddy not only through her health issues, but helps keep her teen spirit up.
This is the first casting announcement since July for the film. More announcements are sure to come as we get closer to the production date.
Aside from Narcos, Ana de la Reguera has also appeared in Jane the Virgin, Eastbound & Down, and the movie Nacho Libre. She will next appear in the upcoming season of From Dusk Till Dawn and in the upcoming Showtime series, Twin Peaks.
About the book:
My disease is as rare as it is famous. Basically, I’m allergic to the world. I don’t leave my house, have not left my house in seventeen years. The only people I ever see are my mom and my nurse, Carla.
But then one day, a moving truck arrives next door. I look out my window, and I see him. He’s tall, lean and wearing all black—black T-shirt, black jeans, black sneakers, and a black knit cap that covers his hair completely. He catches me looking and stares at me. I stare right back. His name is Olly.
Maybe we can’t predict the future, but we can predict some things. For example, I am certainly going to fall in love with Olly. It’s almost certainly going to be a disaster.
