I love her! It's funny that Jessica and
[Show spoiler] Matt Damon appeared in both Interstellar and The Martian when Damon is evil in Interstellar and he is good in The Martian.

I am really, really shocked that an appreciation thread for Jessica Chastain was not already created.

It's taken a while for me to warm up to her. Chastain provided solid work in some of the stuff I had seen her in like Tree of Life, Coriolanus, The Help, Mama, Interstellar and The Martian. But where she really won me over was with her role in Crimson Peak as the completely bat***t crazy sister to Tom Hiddleston's character. A terrifying yet tragic character she was in that. Plus I was surprised how she was able to to do an English accent in that.

You forgot her premiere movie role in Jolene...and her adventure role in Blackbeard (alongside Angus "Robert the Bruce" MacFadyen as Blackbeard). She also played a rather saucy and charming role in Miss Julie opposite Colin Farrell. Also was in Mama opposite Nikolaj Coster-Waldau aka Jaime Lannister from GoT. And Lawless with Tom Hardy, Guy Pearce, Gary Oldman, and Shia LeBeouf. Even the Huntsman: Winter's War she managed to get a lead role opposite Charlize Theron and Emily Blunt and Chris Hemsworth.

Lastly...she was in an episode of Veronica Mars, granted it was one episode.

It took you way too long to be won over.

Sometimes that can happen with me. I could see the same actor or actress in the same movie several times over but then they do that one role and I immediately jump on the hype train.

Lena Headey's a fine example. She was in the Jungle Book in the 90s, along with Merlin in the 90s (Sam Neill), the Brothers Grimm movie with Matt Damon and Heath Ledger, and even in 300 with Gerard Butler before she got her chance to shine as Cersei Lannister in Game of Thrones.

I actually thought she shone in the Sarah Conner chronicles (but Cersei is something else)

I kinda developed a crush on her all the way back in 2000 when I saw her in Gossip. Awful American accent(and movie), but she was really cute in that flick.

She is gorgeous but then again I love redheads!

I remember watching the Martian for the first time on BD, I really didn't care about Matt Damon on Mars. I just wanted to see more Chastain and I wished she was my commander in space!
