[ # ] Jenna Ortega explains how her Wednesday Addams is different
September 23rd, 2022 under Jenna Ortega, Netflix

There have been several incarnations of Wednesday Addams throughout the decades. She has been played by Lisa Loring, Christina Ricci, Chloe Grace Moretz, and now Jenna Ortega.

Up until now, Wednesday has been part of The Addams Family. However, on November 23rd, she is getting her own series on Netflix from Tim Burton.

Ortega, who is playing the lead role, explains how her version is different than the ones that came before her. “Wednesday is currently a teenager, and we’ve never seen her as a teenager before. Her snarky, snide remarks might not necessarily sound as charming when they’re coming from somebody who should probably know better than a 10-year-old girl,” the actress said.

“That was a balancing act. We didn’t want to make her sound like every other teenage girl, but we also didn’t want to make her too ignorant. And we’ve never seen her on screen this much. Any other time you’ve seen Wednesday, she’s been the one-liner, the end of a joke, she always hits it, and I think that’s what people really love about her. But in this show, every scene is Wednesday. There’s an opportunity to give her a bit more dimension, and she becomes a bit more of a real person, which I don’t think we’ve ever seen before.”

I can’t wait to see what Ortega brings to the part because she is the actress to watch for her generation.
