Of course, her most widely-praised role at this point is as Wednesday Addams in the Netflix smash hit Wednesday. The series quickly became one of the most-watched series the platform has ever seen and much can be attributed to Ortega’s portrayal as the morose but whipsmart titular character.

It was a heavy lift to bring such an iconic character to life, but Jenna Ortega was more than up to the task, delivering the most iconic iteration yet (sorry Christina Ricci). 

Plus there is the major role in Beetlejuice 2 which sees the return of Michael Keaton’s iconic character. Oh, and don’t forget the Scream franchise which really cemented Jenna Ortega as a force to be reckoned with on the big screen.

One of her early breakthrough roles was in the popular television series, Jane the Virgin. Portraying the young Jane allowed Ortega to demonstrate her ability to captivate audiences, marking her out as a rising star in the industry.

Ortega further increased her profile when she landed a role in the Disney Channel series, Stuck in the Middle. She played Harley Diaz, the middle child in a large family. Her portrayal was a hit with viewers, who found the character relatable and engaging.

Her versatility shone through in the Netflix thriller series, You, where she played Ellie Alves. The character, a street-smart teen, allowed Ortega to showcase a different aspect of her acting range, proving she can take on a variety of roles with equal skill.

On the big screen, Ortega demonstrated her talents in voice acting in Disney’s animated series, Elena of Avalor, where she lent her voice to the lead character, Princess Isabel. More recently, she delved into the horror genre with her role in the sequel to The Babysitter, demonstrating her versatility and range.

Her career is on the rise unlike many others in the industry.
