Daniela Melchior has a must-follow Instagram account, and in case you’re wondering, it’s completely rat-free, at least for now. The Suicide Squad actress prefers to fill her Instagram feed with fashion shots, candids from her personal life, and a handful of pictures from the sets of her films. Her latest post shows off a lot of leg, as she poses in platform heels and a strapped caramel dress, just as Marvel fans are celebrating that she is joining the MCU and reteaming with director James Gunn for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.

The 25-year-old Portuguese native turned heads in her very first English-speaking role, when James Gunn cast her as Ratcatcher 2 in 2021’s The Suicide Squad, and her career went nuclear. In addition to Guardians 3, Daniela Melchior has no less than three major films either filming or in production: Fast X (the latest entry in the Fast & Furious franchise), the reboot of the 1980s Patrick Swayze classic Road House (starring Jake Gyllenhaal), and Assassin Club, an action film starring Henry Golding, Sam Neill, and Noomi Rapace.

Earlier this year, Daniela Melchior posted video online from the set of Fast X, featuring her behind the wheel of a car as a scene was filmed. Details from the film are being kept under wraps, so she couldn’t reveal what type of car she was driving or even disclose the color. She and Hollywood legend Rita Moreno are among two new additions to the all-star cast, alongside Vin Diesel, Charlize Theron, Jason Statham, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, and Ludacris.

Daniela Melchior also has a big film opening this December: the big-screen adaptation of Marlowe, with Liam Neeson in the lead role as the classic private eye. Neil Jordan (The Crying Game, Michael Collins) is directing, with Diane Kruger and Jessica Lange among the cast. Her role in the film is unknown.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 wrapped principal photography earlier this summer, around the same time that Gunn revealed that Daniela Melchior will appear in the film in a small, unspecified role. Gunn has only confirmed that she won’t be playing the telepath Moondragon, but has provided no additional details. The film opens in theaters on May 5, 2023, and sees the return of Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Vin Diesel, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, Sylvester Stallone, Karen Gillan, and Elizabeth Debicki, with Will Poulter and Chuk Iwuji joining the cast.

Daniela Melchior in Parque Mayer (2018)

Born Daniela Melchior dos Reis Lopes Pereira on November 1, 1996 in Almada, Portugal, Daniela made her mark in Portuguese TV and film, and even provided the voice of Gwen Stacy/Spider-Gwen in the country’s dubbed version of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. In 2019, she was named Best Actress by the Sophia Awards (the Portuguese equivalent of the Academy Awards) for her role in the comedy drama Parque Mayer. Her performance caught the attention of James Gunn, and she was soon working in Hollywood.

There are more potential blockbusters in Daniela Melchior’s future. James Gunn has teased a sequel to The Suicide Squad (although one hasn’t been officially announced), and since her character was one of the few to survive the last film, she would likely return. She is also reportedly on board for the next Fast & Furious film as well.
