THE WORDS OF JENNA ORTEGA
Tim Burton, Jenna Ortega will be Wednesday Addams in the Netflix tv series
“Wednesday is a teenager at the moment and we’ve never seen her like this before,” said Jenna Ortega. Her sarcastic and contemptuous comments from her may not necessarily sound pretty when they are made by a little girl who is no longer ten years old. ” Getting into the role, reveals the actress, “was not easy. We didn’t want her to be like all other teenagers, but we didn’t want her to seem oblivious either. And we’ve never seen it so present on screen. In the past when Wednesday came on the scene, whether it was just for a joke or she was being targeted by a joke, she always did it with skill and that’s what people love about her. But in this series she is at the center of the action. We have the opportunity to give her more depth and in this way she becomes a more real person, something that has never been done before ”.
