It has been a good year for Jenna Ortega and her latest performance as Wednesday Addams has solidified her status as a Gen Z icon. Her Wednesday dance scene has already gone viral, and her portrayal has opened up interesting discussions about race, gender, and neurodiversity—in addition to the delightfully creepy and kooky Addams family antics.

#2. Scream (2022)

Tara Carpenter may be one of the characters who has physically gone through the most in a single movie, having survived three Ghostface fights and getting to join in on the climactic beatdown. While this movie was more about her older sister, Sam Carpenter, Jenna Ortega also did her best. Her opening scene in the movie Scream helped her win an MTV movie award for “Most Frightened Performance.”

#3. X (2022)

Jenna’s face when her character realizes what sort of basement she’s in is the stuff of nightmares and has been used in almost every poster and promotion for X. Add the gut-churning scream to match and this movie has cemented Ortega as a young Scream Queen. 

#4. The Fallout (2022)

In this sad movie about the aftermath of a school shooting, Ortega has some truly heartbreaking scenes as she tries to come to terms with what happened, and the fact that she and her friends are forever changed not only by this one event but also by the cycle of abuse that re-traumatizes victims. This role got her two nominations for Best Actress from the Hollywood Critics Association Midseason Awards, and Best Actress in a Limited Series or TV Movie from the International Online Cinema Awards.

#5. Yes Day

A kind of mid-tier Netflix comedy, but it’s another role that Ortega shines. Her parents, Allison and Carlos give her and her other siblings a 24-hour to do anything they want. As a teenage daughter who tries to be independent, she made some poor decisions along the way. The movie describes the time she’s alone at a concert and has an anxiety attack. Yes Day also earned Ortega another nomination for Best Actress – Feature Film at the 2021 Imagen Awards.

#6. Jane the Virgin (2014-2019)

Most people recognize Jenna from her role as young Jane Villanueva in Jane the Virgin at the first glance, especially from the infamous flower scene, and for good reason: She makes the most of her limited screen time, and her performance makes it easy to see the thread running through all the episodes and how Jane’s past affects her present.

#7. The Babysitter: Killer Queen

Jenna Ortega plays the too-cool-for-school type in "The Babysitter: Killer Queen." She wears heart-shaped glasses and her hair in pigtails. Rumors swirl that she killed her parents, giving her a nasty girl street edge. As Cole (Judah Lewis) is also an outcast — no one believes the events of the first film actually happened — the pair strike up an unexpected romance.
Which movie do you like the most? We hope you will enjoy watching these Jenna Ortega films while being patient waiting for the upcoming season of Wednesday.
