BoJack Horseman Wiki
After I almost drowned, I decided I would never be weaker than water. So, I became a lifeguard. On my first day of training my instructor told me that there are going to be times when you'll see someone in trouble, you're going to want to rush in there and do whatever you can to save them, but you have to stop yourself. Because there are some people you can't save.

—Ana to BoJack, That's Too Much, Man!


Ana Spanakopita is a recurring character in Season 3 of BoJack Horseman. She was first introduced in Out to Sea, in Season 2.

She is a publicist who is known as "The Oscar Whisperer."

Physical Appearance[]

Ana has dark olive skin and shoulder-length brown hair with caramel-colored high lights and two thin braids tied along the front. She wears magenta-colored lipstick and gray eye-shadow.

She wears a diagonal checkered black, gray, and white tank along with a black belt, a high waist, mid-calf lime-green colored skirt, and dark purple high heels with laces tied around the ankle.


Ana is a ruthless publicist, willing to forego most things, to win her clients Oscars. For example, when BoJack accidentally leaked the truth about Secretariat to Heather (a reporter from Manatee Fair), Ana dealt with the situation—stopping Heather from publishing a story. In It's You, she is seen coming off the phone from speaking to Heather about what BoJack Horseman was doing during the Oscar announcements.

Ana is very forward, bold, and blunt. This is shown when, after dropping all her clients besides BoJack, she gives him a handjob. She then tightly squeezes his penis, causing him to cry out in pain—before warning him never to betray her again. She is ironically aroused by BoJack being in charge, implying she is some sort of masochist.


Season 3[]

Ana, an accomplished Hollywoo publicist, starts representing BoJack, after the success of Secretariat.

She leaves no stone unturned, to try and get BoJack an Academy Award nomination, for his role in the movie. Ana is shown to have a stellar record, with most of her clients going on to win Oscars.

She and BoJack start an affair, which leads to an unsuccessful relationship. While she seems like a merciless perfectionist, trying to maintain a façade of mystery, she is seen in Stop the Presses living a normal life.

As a young adult, she had a near-drowning experience, that greatly shaped who she would become as an adult; refusing to allow anyone in her life whom she believes will lead her to failure or to "sink."

Season 5[]

It's revealed she is Vance Waggoner's publicist.

In BoJack the Feminist, Diane is vocal about how having Vance star in Philbert is problematic, due to the controversy surrounding his past; and the fact that Philbert causes powerful men in the industry to justify their terrible actions. Diane leaves and goes to her car. Inside waiting for her is Ana Spanakopita, who wants her to stop harassing Vance because he's her client. Diane proceeds to go off on Ana, saying all Hollywoo does, is let men like Vance off the hook over and over again. As a result, they never learn, and people who support them are culpable for their actions. Ana calmly tells Diane, she's given her a lot to think about, and leaves.

Later in the episode, Diane goes in her car, where Ana is waiting for her again. She tells Diane she was right about Vance, as he created another controversy. Ana dropped him, he's finished with show business, for a few years—until the public decides to forgive him yet again. Ana also tells Diane, she was right about how men are always given cover for the bad things they do, over and over again. She pulls out a tape recorder and tells Diane to listen; it's the recording of BoJack telling Heather, the Manatee Fair writer, about what he almost did to Penny in New Mexico from Start Spreading The News.
