Netflix ‘Wednesday’: Jenna Ortega reveals how she felt about the twist in season finale
Netflix dropped its much-anticipated Addams Family spin-off, Wednesday, which stars actress Jenna Ortega in the lead.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight,Ortega, shared how she felt about the shocking season finale.
“I kind of anticipated it,” said Ortega. “I wasn’t too worried about it. I was just excited to see what she would do because it’s one thing to read something on a page. I’ve never done something so fantasy-oriented either, so I was wondering what this is going to look like.”
“I remember the day. Christina [Ricci] was saying, ‘I have a gun in my hand and you’re going to tell me that a bee lands on it and we decide not to shoot.’ There’s a lot of logical things that you question, but then again, with a show like this, it’s campy and fun and it’s not supposed to be taken seriously,” elucidated the actress, 20.
“Sometimes, you just have to shut logical thoughts down and just let the fantasy play out,” Ortega explained, adding that knowing director Tim Burton was signing off on every plot surprise gave her comfort. “I think his approval and everything, his overseeing everything was comforting.
When asked what she expected from her character is the show is renewed for a second season, Ortega shared, “I kind of want her to be darker.”
“I want her to get more in the nitty-gritty of things and not play things so safe, because there are a lot of lines about her saving the school and doing whatever, but for me, her main drive with the monster is of a competitiveness. Kind of, ‘Man, how’s this guy doing this?’”
“I think I want it to continue down an antihero stream rather than a typical hero,” Ortega added.
The Netflix original is a based on the iconic gothic family, focussing on daughter Wednesday, with the official synopsis explaining, “Smart, sarcastic and a little dead inside, Wednesday Addams investigates a murder spree while making new friends — and foes — at Nevermore Academy.”
The series sees Wednesday attempting to master her psychic abilities while solving the mystery involving her parents from 25 years prior. Unsurprisingly, the show shot straight into the 10 most-watched things on the streaming platform, with many viewers taking to social media to share their obsession with actor Jenna Ortega as Wednesday.
As one put it, “I can’t even find the words to express how amazing this is #wednesdaynetflix” Another said, “I’m sorry but I’m completely obsessed with Jenna Ortega as Wednesday Addams.”
Others put, “NEW GENERATION’S WEDNESDAY ADDAMS. THANK YOU JENNA ORTEGA” and “She really gave it her all playing Wednesday Addams. I hope she gets all the recognition she deserves.”
