Evan Rachel Wood is part of the group of child actors who managed to become successful adults, gradually evolving and choosing projects with which they could transition to adult life in the cinema.

Now, Wood is an Emmy nominee with several dozen movies to her name, plus she was cast as the lead in Westworld, the hit HBO series based on the 1970s film, where she plays a robot who, after suffering all kinds of abuse by humans, rebels against her creators and joins others like her to try to win her freedom.

His first film project came in 1997, after several made-for-TV movies. He eventually got to work alongside Sandra Bullock, Nicole Kidman, Cate Blanchett, and other great actors and directors.

Her most recent project was in the film about the life of Weird Al Yankovic, where she played Madonna, but she has many other films of all genres that have taken her to the top and that you have to see to know a little more about her.

3. Weird: The Al Yankovic Story

Daniel Radcliffe and Evan Rachel Wood star in this comedy film based on the life of Weird Al Yankovic.
