|“||Do you like that? Being in control? Being the star? You’re my star, BoJack. My shining star. But don’t you ever try to screw me again, do you understand?||”|
—Ana Spanakopita to BoJack Horseman
Ana, an accomplished Hollywood 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 Ana seems like a merciless perfectionist and tries to maintain a facade 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."
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 goes off on Ana saying all Hollywoo does is let men like Vance off the hook over and over again, and 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, so she dropped him and 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.
Ana usually 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.
She has dark olive skin and shoulder-length brown hair with caramel colored high lights and two thin braids tied along the front and wears magenta-colored lipstick and gray eyeshadow.
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, Ana dealt with the situation, stopping Heather from publishing a story.
Heather's whereabouts are unknown and she has never been seen since her encounter with BoJack, however later 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 also very forward, bold, and blunt, as shown when, after dropping all her clients besides BoJack, she gives BoJack a hand job and then tightly squeezes his penis, causing him to cry out in pain, before warning him never to betray her again. She's aroused by BoJack being in charge, implying she is some sort of masochist.
