It seemed like Aubrey Plaza fell off the movie industry scene in the past few years, but you couldn't be more wrong.

The actress revealed to Deadline that she's been working throughout the last ten years, and it's all coming to roost. Many of her movies are seeing releases back-to-back.

She returned to the top of major headlines this quarter with her performance in The White Lotus Season Two, and it's almost as if people didn't know Plaza before.

The White Lotus

Plaza is Harper in Mike White's latest installment of The White Lotus, a television series about a fictional resort and the lives of the vacationers there.

The actress earlier revealed that the showrunner wrote her character based on her real-life personality making Harper the closest to a home she's ever felt playing a role.

Harper is uptight and straight-laced but is learning to unravel in the most adventurous ways. However, there's more where that came from, as Plaza is set to star in even bigger productions next year.

Catching Francis Ford Coppola's Eye

Plaza produced an independent movie, Emily the Criminal released this year leading to four nominations at the Film Independent Spirit Awards. The actress earned two nominations out of the four including Best Lead Performance and Best First Feature producer.

Emily the Criminal also opened Plaza up to the Megalopolis role as it set Francis Ford Coppola's sights on her. Despite its low budget (they shot the movie in 21 days), Plaza believed the movie's quality would speak for itself and it did.

More Movies Coming In 2023

Plaza couldn't reveal anything about Megalopolis except how excited she was about it. She also clammed up on the Agatha: Coven of Chaos news because she wants to keep her job, and it's starting in 2023.

We'll just have to wait to see if she will be a villain or hero in Marvel's WandaVision spinoff. Plaza also delved into the voice role realm with Little Demon and spoke about the backlash against the movie from conservative mothers.

Upsetting Conservative Mothers

Little Demon is an adult cartoon about a reluctant mother who births the devil's child (the antichrist) and struggles to raise her in a normal suburban community. Speaking of the dark arts and "occult," Plaza wrote a children's book titled The Return of the Christmas Witch. 

Much like her animated cartoon about Satan, Plaza received backlash for her book but had the same sentiment toward critics. If they don't like it, they can simply avoid it.
