10. Stuck in the Middle (2016)

One of Ortega’s earliest roles was as Harley Diaz, the middle child in a family of seven kids, in the Disney Channel sitcom “Stuck in the Middle”. The show ran for three seasons and showcased Ortega’s natural comedic timing and charm at a young age.

While Stuck in the Middle may have flown under the radar compared to her more recent work, it’s a testament to Ortega’s talent that she was able to carry a show at just 13 years old.

9. Yes Day (2021)


In this Netflix family comedy, Ortega plays Katie Torres, the teenage daughter of Jennifer Garner and Edgar Ramírez’s characters.

The premise revolves around the parents having to say “yes” to their kids’ requests for 24 hours. Ortega brings her signature wit and relatability to the role, holding her own against the film’s veteran stars. “Yes Day” is a fun, heartwarming watch that the whole family can enjoy together.

8. You (2019)


Ortega’s first foray into more mature content was in the second season of the hit Netflix thriller “You”. She played Ellie Alves, the precocious teenage neighbor of Penn Badgley’s serial killer Joe Goldberg.

Ellie forms an unlikely bond with Joe, not realizing the darkness lurking beneath his charming exterior. Ortega brings depth and nuance to the role, making Ellie one of the season’s most compelling characters.

7. Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous (2020)


In this Netflix animated series, set in the Jurassic Park universe, she voices Brooklynn, a travel vlogger and one of six teens chosen to experience a new adventure camp on Isla Nublar.

When the dinosaurs break free and wreak havoc, the group must band together to survive. Ortega brings her signature spunk to Brooklynn, making her a fan-favorite character.

6. The Babysitter: Killer Queen (2020)


In this campy horror-comedy sequel to Netflix’s The Babysitter, Ortega plays Phoebe, the new girl in town who gets caught up in a satanic blood cult.

The film is a wild ride from start to finish, with Ortega gamely throwing herself into the over-the-top antics. While the movie received mixed reviews, critics praised Ortega’s committed performance and natural screen presence.

5. The Fallout (2021)


Ortega showcases her dramatic chops in this HBO Max film about the aftermath of a school shooting. She plays Vada, a high school student grappling with PTSD and survivor’s guilt in the wake of the tragedy. Ortega delivers a raw, emotionally honest performance that anchors the film.

4. Studio 666 (2022)


In this horror-comedy, Ortega appears alongside the Foo Fighters as they record an album in a haunted mansion. While Studio 666 is more of a showcase for the band’s comedic skills, Ortega makes the most of her screen time as a groupie who gets caught up in the supernatural mayhem. The film is a fun, gory romp that lets Ortega flex her horror muscles in a lighter context.

3. X (2022)

Ortega ventures into slasher territory with this A24 film about a group of amateur pornographers who run afoul of a murderous elderly couple in rural Texas. She plays Lorraine, the shy girlfriend of one of the male performers who gets more than she bargained for on the trip.

X is a tense, stylish thriller that pays homage to ’70s horror classics like The Texas Chain Saw Massacre. Ortega is a standout as the film’s “final girl,” proving she has the chops to be a modern scream queen.

2. Scream & Scream VI (2022 & 2023)

Ortega cements her status as a horror icon with her role as Tara Carpenter in the latest installments of the Scream franchise. In the 2022 “Requel,” she plays the younger sister of Melissa Barrera’s Sam, who becomes the target of the latest Ghostface killer.

Ortega’s performance grounds the film’s meta humor with genuine terror and vulnerability. In Scream VI, Tara takes on a more central role as the killings follow her to New York City. Ortega continues to shine as a fierce, resourceful protagonist who can go toe-to-toe with the franchise’s masked villain.

1. Wednesday (2022)
