All hail TV queen, Connie Britton!

The longtime television actress is celebrating her birthday today and we are fully here to support her and her amazing TV career.

In honor of Britton turning 52 years old today—her age does not match her beauty, let's just say that—we've taken a trip down television memory lane and we're bringing you along for the ride.

Fans of the Boston native know that Britton is not a one-hit wonder when it comes to her acting career, and when it comes to her TV career she's a total standout.

Beginning with her four seasons on Spin City to her dramatic portrayal of Debra Newell on Bravo's true-crime series Dirty John in 2018, Britton has been slaying the TV game.

Some people fell in love with her during her arc on The West Wing, while others rooted for her to survive (which she did) on 24.

We however became die-hard fans and lovers of the birthday girl thanks to her role on Friday Night Lights.

Clear eyes, full hearts, Tami Taylor!

If you weren't a FNL viewer—we highly recommend you watch and discover the greatness of Dillon, Texas, football and Tami ASAP—you might've been an American Horror Story: Murder House person, which we totally get because Britton again was a standout.

Of course, who could forget the red-haired beauty on Nashville? She was so lovable as country singer Rayna James and we were not ready for her role to end.

Plus, there's her one-season role on 9-1-1, which pulled us in and then left us wanting more in addition to many more shows throughout her time as an actress that led to her Dirty John character that we must look at.

The time has come to raise a glass to Britton as we go back over her epic TV career below. Once you're done oohing and aahing over Britton's success, make sure to vote for your favorite role from the birthday girl.

Happy birthday, Connie! We love you, no matter who you play.

PS: Texas forever!
