Vera Farmiga Bates Motel
She was cast as Norma Louise Bates, the mother of Norman Bates in the American psychological horror drama television series Bates Motel.
After Norman’s father dies, Norma and Norman Bates purchase a motel in the first season. The second season follows Norman in the aftermath of his teacher’s murder, as her mysterious past is revealed. The third season focuses on Norman’s dwindling denial about what is happening to him, as well as the lengths he will go to regain control of his fragile psyche. The fourth season follows Norma as she grows increasingly afraid of Norman and goes to great lengths to find him the professional help he requires. The fifth season begins two years after Norma’s death, as Norman struggles at home, where his blackouts are becoming more frequent and “Mother” threatens to take over completely.
Vera Farmiga Godzilla: King of the Monsters
She was cast as Dr. Emma Russell, Mark’s ex-wife, Madison’s mother, and a renegade Monarch paleobiologist with a history of environmental activism in league with eco-terrorist Alan Jonah in the 2019 American monster film Godzilla: King of the Monsters.
She is one of the Orca’s co-inventors. Emma, unlike Mark, believes humans and Titans can coexist peacefully. She sees Godzilla as a potential savior in an age of catastrophic climate change, rather than as a villain. Emma, according to Farmiga, sees Godzilla in the same way that she sees Mother Nature, stating that “when these devastating natural occurrences come, it’s because the environment has been mistreated and is showing righteous anger.” Emma and Madison join forces with a mysterious organization interested in her technology, and they each have their own plans for the creatures. Farmiga described her character as a “DJ for the monsters,” explaining that “she has figured out a way to communicate with the creatures,” and that the film is about “saving the environment.” Farmiga stated that, unlike the previous film, King of the Monsters focuses on a mother/daughter relationship. As a result, Farmiga believes the film will pass the Bechdel test.
Vera Farmiga The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It
She was cast as Lorraine Warren in the American supernatural horror film The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It.

One of their most sensational cases, it begins with a battle for a young boy’s soul, then takes them beyond anything they’d ever seen before, to mark the first time in U.S. history that a murder suspect claimed demonic possession as a defense.
