In 2019, Jenna Ortega expressed her desire to “break away” from the Disney Channel mold after her work on “Stuck in the Middle.” In the years since, she has certainly achieved that goal and more. Most recently, Ortega starred in Netflix’s “Wednesday,” but before that, she was busy making a name for herself in the thriller-horror genre with projects such as “The Babysitter: Killer Queen,” “You,” “Studio 666,” and A24’s “X.” Additionally, she gave a remarkable performance as Tara Carpenter in the 2022 version of “Scream.”
Ortega told POPSUGAR in December 2019 that her aim in acting was to avoid being typecast. Throughout her decade-long career in Hollywood (she is only 20, by the way), the actor has demonstrated her versatility. One moment she is playing an innocent teenager (“Yes Day”), and the next she is hunting dinosaurs (“Jurassic World Camp Cretaceous”) or chasing down a murder suspect while writing her own murder mysteries as Wednesday. It is clear that Ortega is just getting started. Read on to discover all of Ortega’s major movie and TV roles.
