Although she's digitally rendered to look alien, Proxima Midnight's voice and facial structure are sure to make you ask yourself: "Where do I know her from?" Carrie Coon's convincingly intimidating motion-capture performance in Infinity War is yet another impressive addition to her acting résumé.

Talk about a successful debut: For her very first feature film appearance, Coon starred alongside Ben Affleck in Gone Girl, the adaptation of Gillian Flynn's twisted novel of the same name. Coon starred as Margo Dunne, twin sister of Affleck's leading man, Nick Dunne. She got the part by sending in an audition tape, and she must've really knocked it out of the park in order to get cast the old-fashioned way.

Coon really showcased the full range of her acting chops, and it definitely had an effect on the film's success. Gone Girl was a massive box office hit, bringing in nearly $370 million worldwide. If the first movie you ever act in goes on to become one of the top 20 highest-grossing films of the year, you must be doing something right.

HBO's psychological mystery drama The Leftovers focused on the lives of several people who remained on Earth after two percent of the entire global population vanished in a rapture-like event. The series ran for three seasons and 28 episodes from 2014 to 2017. Coon portrayed Nora Durst, a grieving widower who lost both her husband and her children in the event.

She still views her work on the show with great regard. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, she raved about how it affected her career.

In the spring of 2017, Coon's acting career really caught fire. While simultaneously shooting The Leftovers, she also joined the cast of FX's smash hit series Fargo for its third season. A black comedy wrapped up in a crime anthology, the show is based on the Coen brothers' 1996 film of the same name. Coon starred as Gloria Burgle, the recently divorced chief of police in snowy Eden Valley, Minnesota.
