Ana Torrent Bertrán de Lis (born July 12, 1966) is a Spanish film actress.

Torrent's debut came in 1973 with the starring role as "Ana" in the film "El espíritu de la colmena (The Spirit of the Beehive)" by Víctor Erice, when she was seven years old. This was followed by yet another memorable role in which she played the lead character's younger self in "Cría cuervos (Raise Ravens)" (1976) by Carlos Saura.

In 1989 she performed with Sharon Stone in the film "Blood and Sand" by Javier Elorrieta.

In 1996, Torrent received numerous awards and nominations, including a Goya Award nomination for her lead actress role in Alejandro Amenábar's film "Tesis (Thesis)". By the end of the 1990s, Torrent received critical acclaim when she played a Basque nationalist murdered for quitting ETA, in the film "Yoyes" (1999) by Helena Taberna.

As of 2008 Torrent remains a working actress and appeared as Catherine of Aragon in the film "The Other Boleyn Girl" (2008), performing a relatively small role in a film starring Natalie Portman and Scarlett Johansson.
