Daniela Melchior in Fast X
Daniela Melchior is on the fast track to stardom. The Portuguese actress entered American cinema in 2021 with The Suicide Squad and into Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 last month. Now with Fast X this weekend, her profile significantly elevates with another blockbuster film within two years.
She joins the cast as a mysterious Brazilian street racer who may have particular ties to Dom Toretto.
The returning cast members include Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Nathalie Emmanuel, Jordana Brewster, Sung Kang, Jason Statham, John Cena, Scott Eastwood, Helen Mirren, and Charlize Theron. Other new cast members include Brie Larson, Alan Richtson, Melchior, and Rita Moreno.
Here is the official synopsis:
The end of the road begins.
Fast X, the tenth film in the Fast & Furious saga, launches the final chapters of one of cinema’s most storied and popular global franchises, now in its third decade and still going strong with the same core cast and characters as when it began.
Over many missions and against impossible odds, Dom Toretto (Vin Diesel) and his family have outsmarted, out-nerved and outdriven every foe in their path. Now, they confront the most lethal opponent they’ve ever faced: A terrifying threat emerging from the shadows of the past who’s fueled by blood revenge, and who is determined to shatter this family and destroy everything—and everyone—that Dom loves, forever.
In 2011’s Fast Five, Dom and his crew took out nefarious Brazilian drug kingpin Hernan Reyes and decapitated his empire on a bridge in Rio De Janeiro. What they didn’t know was that Reyes’ son, Dante (Jason Mamoa), witnessed it all and has spent the last 12 years masterminding a plan to make Dom pay the ultimate price.
Dante’s plot will scatter Dom’s family from Los Angeles to the catacombs of Rome, from Brazil to London and from Portugal to Antarctica. New allies will be forged and old enemies will resurface. But everything changes when Dom discovers that his own 8-year-old son (Leo Abelo) is the ultimate target of Dante’s vengeance.
