The actress' post came a day before her 26th birthday. On Monday, Hasson, who married composer Julian Brink in 2015, gave followers a glimpse of her birthday celebrations, which included a low-key breakfast with eggs, coffee and a Bloody Mary followed by what appeared to be an outdoor picnic.

"I am king 2day," she captioned a shot of herself trying on a pair of Grenson boots.

Hasson also reposted messages from friends wishing her a happy birthday.

"Happy birthday to this star baby angel @maddiehassonofficial," actress Genesis Rodriguez wrote in an Instagram Story post. "I love you you gigantic weirdo."

Meanwhile, her Impulse costar Sarah Desjardins captioned a video of Hasson dancing, "@maddiehassonofficial I lover you forever."

"Hppy birthday to the beautiful queen that shines so bright my lil angel @maddiehassonofficial," makeup artist Summer O'Grady shared. "Love you so much."

Hasson has also appeared in TV series such as Twisted, The Finder and Mr. Mercedes.

In 2019, she opened up to Collider about the importance of choosing roles that are different with each project, explaining that "a fear of mine is ever finding myself pigeonholed."

"I don’t wanna do that. I also get bored easily. Because I’ve been playing somebody that really internalizes a lot of their feelings, I’m really itching to play somebody who is very extroverted and externalizes all of their feelings, and it’s like an open wound, and super sensitive and outspoken," she said, referencing her Impulse character Henrietta "Henry" Coles. "I just like to switch it up 'cause I get pretty bored."
