Paz is featured in the 2016 comedy film Original y Copia, directed by Guillermo Barba, co-starring Christopher Uckermann, Zuria Vega, and Juan Pablo Medina. This is Paz' first comedy. Talking about this role she said: "It is a place where I had not stopped and that was far from easy, it was very complicated, because it is far from my comfort zone. It was complicated but fun, I would make another comedy again"; the film was released in Mexico in August 2017 as Casi Una Gran Estafa.
Paz and Veronica Langer (her co-star in Hilda) re-united for the film La Caridad, directed by Marcelino Islas in 2016; Paz won the Best Supporting Actress award at the 59th Ariel Awards for the role of Eva in La Caridad.

In 2018, Paz starred in Nadie Sabrá Nunca, the first feature film by Jesús Torres Torres. Set during the 70s, the drama is about a housewife dealing with machismo, "I think it is very interesting how Jesus [the film director] raises these issues. Women have suffered from machismo, but we are also those who perpetuate it. How it influences younger generations. At that time they had to go against all odds, they didn't even talk about that. I think it is important to identify the role that women have in it, because men also suffer from it, like Rigoberto [played by Jorge A. Jiménez], who has to fulfill that role," Paz said to Sector Cine magazine.
In 2021, she satrred in Coyote TV series as Silvia Pena.
