    I don’t think she realizes how good she is in this series. I also don’t think she gives herself enough credit. Wednesday was sooooo good and awesome. I’m literally obsessed with her 💜

      @Mauris Delos Santos like I said everyone is entitled to their own opinion. You think I’m obsessed ? Okay. Just giving out some credit where it’s due.

      Girls are magical; boys are irrelevant. Girls are indestructible; boys are weak. Girls are amazing; boys are toxic. Every boy in America is getting this message loud and clear every day of his life. Reckon what the fruit of this will be in the coming decades.

    As someone who played the violin as a child, I have to say Jenna did a really a great job with the cello. It always annoys me when actors don't match he bowing/fingering of the music, but she nailed it.

      What annoys me is when singers pretend to play the guitar, the strumming totally fake at a constant wrong speed not touching the strings.

      I play the cello, and her playing seemed very good! it would have helped if it didn't sound like she was playing all 5 instruments at once of Vivaldi's Winter, but still very good in this day and age.

      Like when she was playing paint it black and there was a moment of pizzicato and she was bowing made me LOL but aesthetically she looked like a pro 🖤

    • Chloe Adams
      Chloe Adams Před 2 měsíci +41

      @Caitlyn B. Oh, you mean the pizzicato. I just rewatched it and It is true that there is a slight instance where her playing didn't match up to the soundtrack. It seems as though she was given incorrect direction in order to mime. But overall lets cut her some slack she only had 8 months of practice...

      I got an article reccomended yesterday about how this was the hardest role she ever played because the people responsible for the adaptation had different ideas of the character in mind and because of other circumstances. Seeing that article pop-up I assumed this was a flop, but seeing everybody here raving about her performance just makes me incredibly impressed that she seems to've pulled off a great performance despite the irregular non-optimal circumstances.

    She is highly educated in her craft and medium - and yet she’s also a very intuitive actor with great passion and depth of feeling.
    I don’t know why Glenn Close keeps coming back to mind when I think of Jenna Ortega. Perhaps it’s that superb balance between talent and craft - or the love and attention to scary, unconventional roles.
    Either way, if there is any justice in this world, this young lady is going to go very far and become a mega star.

    The fact that she learned the cello for this role shows how much of a dedicated actor she is. As a cello, bass, violin, piano, and guitar player it’s not easy to learn how to play the cello in such short times.

    It’s weird, when I looked up the cast of Wednesday, I read the name Jenna Ortega and this name was so familiar to me but I realized that I’ve actually never heard of her before. The name Jenna Ortega sounded as familiar as an adult actress who has been famous for many years so I was kinda shocked to find out that Jenna is only 20 years old.
    Something similar happens when stranger things first became popular, I googled the cast and read the name Millie Bobbie brown and thought she’s one of the many famous adult actresses who has been acting for many years and I was also very shocked to find out that Millie was only like 13 years old. Did this happen to someone else or just me ?

    I know she nailed Wednesday, but every character in the 8 episode nailed there parts, I was so happy when this first season ended, There was nothing for me to say with the exception of Lurch who did not give us a rolling of the eyes and low moan when things get to be too much. The hand grenade fishing scene was aswome while Gomez was in jail. Her stepping to hyde and giving him a you know what was so cute and left me aghast that nope no happilys but a different twist of the fates trying to rattle, destroy, and dominate Wednesday. But after so many years and a couple of attempts on the big screen the Adams Family truly has a story to tell, and l am wanting so much more. Props, Kudos too every single actor (i cried for my werewolfs coming of age scene) Dont kid yourself this Netflix release was something special, sabrina, animes, ummm anything this past year really did not leave me admiring faces, makeup, storylines, like this, world wide even this was my top pick for show of the year. love piece and but grease and I'm out.

    Tim Burton is doing an amazing job with filming this hit. I agree, showing her expressionless and silently at times adds so many drama and makes her seem so more intelligent and in control. I’d love to see the outakes in scenes now that she said there were various versions shot.

    This series might be the best casting I’ve seen in years, Netflix really outdid themselves, the entire adams family is perfect

      @BILL MURRAY I think Raul and Angelica were a good Gomez and Morticia as leads for the The Addams Family movies in the 90s. In 2022, the actors of Morticia and Gomez were a good casting choice for the TV series based on th pov of their teenage daughter, Wednesday, whose the lead. Casting and Concept would be different given the director and time.

      @Twenty One Tortas I like how you think you know how he should be portrayed, like Tim Burton doesn't know what he's doing with his own characters. It's people like you this world doesn't need. People who can't stand change and are threatened by it

      @R I think Tim Burton knows how to write for his own characters. It's funny how you keyboard warriors think you know what's best. If you don't like it, don't watch it.

    I was vehemently against making a new Wednesday Addams. HOWEVER!
    This reprisal is both familiar and fresh. I appreciate the fact that she acknowledges the flawless, high bar Christina Ricci set for the role and that she reached it in her own way, through her own talent. Miss Ortega achieves familiarity of character but she makes us welcome the evolution that we didn’t know we needed for Wednesday. I applaud this actor for all her achievements in this role. 👏🏾 👏🏾 👏🏾

    Honestly, my favorite part of how she portrays Wednesday is her micro expressions. She keeps her deadpan expression throughout the show but is able to make these small subtle changes, allowing the audience to see how she's really feeling. Which is important since Wednesday is the main character. It's so unique and fascinating to watch.

      @Thanh Vy Võ l can tell you exactly. When Uncle Fester said she was like her mum, and she looked conflicted, like, ‘l’m not sure how l feel about that,’ but she showed that all with one movement of her eyes.

I have always had a connection to Wednesday being the smart one in my family who is so misunderstood hellbound on truth and justice for those who could not deliver justice themselves!!!! I Love this Wednesday Adams!!! And I seriously hope this series goes on and on!!!! And Please tell me we are gonna see Kuzion It??? Tim Burton has done it yet again and you have played and amazing Wednesday Adams!!!!🖖 Did I mention the dance scene was freaking AWESOME!!!!

    I think they cast the new Wednesday perfectly. At the same time they casted Christina Ricci as a nod to the last generation of Wednesday even though she played a different character. Also Tim Burton is the perfect director using his style.

    I really, really do appreciate how Jenna recognizes that this is a different interpretation of the character and has leaned into it. While I certainly love seeing a character be the same regardless of the person behind the story itself, I also just adore it whenever a character is malleable enough to shift with the narrative.

      @The Faerie Prince it's impossible for her to play the character the same when they are put in completely different situations.

    I love this show and Jenna Ortega, she is so great to watch, but I kind of feel bad for the older Wednesday characters that didn't get mentioned after this interview. I didn't grow up with them either but I have heard about them since this show for example Lisa Loring.
    Any case moving on. Jenna has made this role her own and I am really enjoying it. She is doing so great. Love it!!!!!
