10 As We Were Dreaming (Rating: 6.3)

8 Polar (Rating: 6.3)
A Netflix original action thriller film, Polar starred Danish actor Mads Mikkelsen, in what is now considered to be one of Mikkelsen’s worst English-speaking roles. Mikkelsen was joined by several other notable cast members, including Vanessa Hudgens (High School Musical), Katheryn Winnick (Big Sky), and Matt Lucas (Doctor Who).
Fee portrayed the character of Sindy, an assassin working for Lucas’s character. Her role was relatively small in the film, only appearing in a handful of scenes. At the end of her arc, Sindy attempts to seduce Duncan Visla (Mikkelsen) in order for her compatriots to assassinate him but ends up losing her life in the ensuing battle.
7 Lindenberg! Mach Dein Ding (Rating: 6.4)
This coming-of-age musical biopic tells the story of musician Udo Lindenberg. Jan Bülow plays the famous German drummer in this 2020 film, even re-recording some of Lindenberg’s most popular songs specifically for the film. The movie was also directed by German director Hermine Huntgeburth.
Fee plays the role of Paula in Lindenberg! Mach Dein Ding. Her character is supposedly the subject of one of Lindenberg’s most famous songs, “Alles klar auf der Andrea Doria,” as depicted during the film’s events. It is a comparatively small role for the actress, but still an interesting entry in the catalog of her career.
6 Womb (Rating: 6.4)
Womb is a 2010 drama about Rebecca (Eva Green), a woman who becomes impregnated with the clone of her late boyfriend (Matt Smith). The film explores deep themes about women’s rights, sexual assault, and more, all while keeping a rather unique perspective.
This film is notable for being Ruby O. Fee’s very first credited acting role. At the age of fourteen, she portrays the childhood version of Eva Green’s character, Rebecca. This marked the beginning of a long career in film and television, which has not yet shown any sign of stopping.
5 Army Of Thieves (Rating: 6.4)
Netflix’s spinoff prequel to Zach Snyder’s Army of the Dead saw the character of Ludwig Deiter from the original film join an international heisting team. This group embarks on a mission that carries them all across Europe as they hunt down three historical safes that are nigh-impossible to crack.
Ruby O. Fee portrays the squad’s hacker, Korina. The character is sarcastic and, for the most part, unattached. Nevertheless, she reveals herself to have a heart of gold when she refuses to go along with Cage’s betrayal of Deiter, proving herself to be one of the bravest members of the Dead team.
4 Your Color (Rating: 6.8)

Ruby O. Fee makes an appearance as the character Zoe, the love interest of Schümann’s character Karl and friend to Suzi, played by Maria Dragus (Mary Queen of Scots). Karl turns out to be less interested in Zoe than she is in him, causing her amount of screentime to be much less than certain other characters.

Fee, who has played no less than three separate characters in different episodes of the show. She appeared first in 2013 in the episode “Happy Birthday, Sarah!” as the titular Sarah Baumbach, a role for which she won Günter Strack TV Award for Best Young Actress. Two years later, she appeared as a character named Laura Hartmann in the episode “Kartenhaus,” and finally starred as Lollo Sassen in the 2018 episode “Der kalte Fritte.”
