5. House of Cards (2016-17)

House of Cards is a Netflix show that originally aired from 2013 to 2018. The drama series’ synopsis was, “A Congressman works with his equally conniving wife to exact revenge on the people who betrayed him.”

Campbell joined the show in its fourth season, which aired on March 4, 2016, and remained until the end of the penultimate season, i.e., season five — which premiered on the streaming service on May 30, 2017.

In House of Cards, Campbell portrayed the role of a Democratic political strategist named Leann Harvey. Harvey joins Claire Underwood’s team and starts to serve as her campaign manager.

Harvey is shown as a good person who has a strong moral compass, but she is willing to do anything to get what she wants. And as she gets deeper and deeper into the Underwoods, she begins to dream big for herself.

Speaking of her character to Entertainment Weekly, Campbell said, “She’s very good at finding ways of making [what she wants to happen] happen, which is fun to play. She’ll do whatever it takes to move up.”

Campbell’s portrayal of the ambitious and calculated character of Leann Harvey in the two seasons of House of Cards was praised by many.

4. Wild Things (1998)

Wild Things is an American neo-noir crime thriller movie released on March 20, 1998. It was directed by John McNaughton and starred the likes of Matt Dillon, Neve Campbell, Denise Richards, Kevin Bacon, Theresa Russell, Bill Murray, and Robert Wagner. 

The Rated R movie’s synopsis read, “A police detective uncovers a conspiracy behind a case involving a high-school guidance counselor when accusations of rape are made against him by two female students.”

In this movie, Campbell played the role of Suzie Marie Toller. And her performance in it is said to be great and unlike anything that the audiences had seen in the actress’s other projects.

Her character is shown as a person that everyone disregards; has grown up in a house with financial complications, and no one knows what is going on with her — including the audience, who were expecting Campbell’s character to be soft and vulnerable.

Campbell’s performance truly impressed everyone, and although she didn’t reprise her roles in the three direct-to-DVD sequels, her work in the first one was enough to leave a mark among the 90s audiences.

3. The Craft (1996)

The year 1996 was great for Campbell as she gained major limelight for her performances in multiple movies. One of the movies was the supernatural horror film titled The Craft, released on May 3, 1996.

The movie starred four actresses as its lead: Neve Campbell as Bonnie Harper, Robin Tunney as Sarah Bailey, Fairuza Balk as Nancy Downs, and Rachel True as Rochelle Zimmerman.

The four leads played the role of outcast teenage girls from Los Angeles parochial high school who turn to occult/witchcraft to solve any issues they have but later experience negative consequences.

Campbell’s character had some burn scars all over her body due to a rough car accident. She is shy and self-conscious, but everything changes when Sarah – a girl with unusual abilities – arrives.

The Craft wasn’t initially a hit, and there were several mixed reviews from the critics who criticized the movie’s writing, political messages, and inconsistent tone. However, they had praised the leads’ performances, and the film has gained a cult following years after its initial release.

2. Party of Five (1994-2000)

Party of Five is an American teen and family drama that aired on Fox over six seasons — from September 12, 1994, to May 3, 2000. It was created by Christopher Keyser and Amy Lippman.
