One of the top names in the industry today is Elizabeth. Many popular actresses share the moniker, and they've all made quite the name for themselves.

Elisabeth Moss

The first name that came to my mind was Elisabeth Moss. Though it's spelled differently, we'll let that slide. The Handmaid's Tale on Hulu has increased her popularity in recent years, though she's been gracing our screens for some time. She's appeared on both television and movies for years. You may have already known her from 'Girl, Interrupted, The West Wing, Mad Men, or one of her many other earlier projects.

Most recently, she's been in the films Us, The Kitchen, Shirley, The Invisible Man, and The French Dispatch. She also has a couple different projects in the works according to IMDB, all while still working on The Handmaid's Tale. She's even directed an episode of the series, which will be back in September 2022 for season 5. She was also debuted another series for AppleTV, called Shining Girls.

Though she tends to go by Bitsie, this Elizabeth is still a top contender. Many knew her from Grimm, but she's becoming popular again as Lois Lane on the CW series, Superman and Lois. She appeared as Lois (prior to getting the lead) on various episodes of some of the other CW superhero shows. Superman and Lois was renewed for a third season, so she'll continue being on your screens next year, at the very least.
