The actress has not been in the movie industry for too long, but has managed to captivate millions of fans around the world with her brilliant performances.

Elizabeth Debicki has already achieved cult status because of her role as Princess Diana in The Crown, which she performed at the highest level.

If The Crown role made you fall in love with the actress, here are five must-see projects to watch next.

1. Macbeth, 2015

Macbeth bears the burden of dozens of film adaptations and theatrical productions by various actors and directors who have attempted to do justice to William Shakespeare's great work. It is a story of revenge, betrayal, and desires.

In this Macbeth iteration, Elizabeth Debicki played Lady Macduff, whose accidental tragic death became a turning point for the main character, Lord Macbeth, played by Michael Fassbender. Despite the small (but key) role, the actress' performance proved to be brilliant and once again highlighted her dramatic talent.

2. The Night Manager, 2016

The role of Jed Marshall in The Night Manager became one of the breakout performances of Elizabeth Debicki's career. Alongside established stars like Tom Hiddleston, Hugh Laurie and Olivia Colman, she earned acclaim for her daring role as the girlfriend of arms dealer Dickie Roper, who is trying to find a way out of her dangerous lifestyle.

Her character proved to be sincere and charming (critics even admitted that Debicki managed to outdo the prototype from John le Carre's novel), and the love connection with Hiddleston's character was filled with surprisingly sensual chemistry.

3. The Great Gatsby, 2013

The Great Gatsby was the second film in Elizabeth Debicki's burgeoning career. In Baz Luhrmann 's cult drama, she played Jordan Baker, a socialite in the inner circle of playboy Jay Gatsby, a regular at his famous parties and the girlfriend of young Wall Street trader Nick Carraway.

The actress managed to bring charisma to a rather stereotypic role, as well as blend in effectively with the sumptuous settings and lavish outfits of the 1920s.

4. Tenet, 2020

One of the most famous works of Debicki's film career to date was her role in Christopher Nolan 's sci-fi action Tenet. Her character Kat, the wife of an arms dealer, turned out to be similar to Jed from The Night Manager.

According to the plot, Kat helps the Protagonist and Neil neutralize her terrorist husband and prevent World War III by using time inversion, a futuristic technology that allows time to go backwards.

5. Vita & Virginia, 2018

The screenplay, written by Chanya Button and Eileen Atkins, is an adaptation of Atkins' 1992 play of the same name. The movie is set in the 1920s, in prim Britain. In an era of decaying morals, glittering jazz and bootlegging, wealthy socialite Vita Sackville-West (played by Gemma Arterton) meets one of the most prominent female writers, Virginia Woolf (played by Elizabeth Debicki).

Fierce opposition turns to mutual sympathy, and sympathy turns to a whirlwind romance that will rock high society and change Vita and Virginia's lives forever.
