When Jenna Ortega got an email from Tim Burton to play Wednesday Addams, she thought it was a prank since the actor has been compared to Wednesday for most of her life. She takes us through her entire process of auditioning and preparing for her role as the iconic Wednesday Addams in the new Netflix series 'Wednesday.' From learning cello to consulting the original Wednesday, Christina Ricci, Jenna spills all on how she gets in (and out) of character.
Wednesday is available to stream on November 23rd exclusively on Netflix.

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.

But in first episode they've shown an old woman's hands in close view and that kinda cut my eyes, that was so obvious that those are not her hands, and I didn't get why they needed to do that when in others episodes she did her cello job well

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.

Isn’t it so cool too that she just learned cello FOR THIS ROLE!?! Jenna Ortega clearly has what it takes to go really far as an actress… wow.

ill counter your comment with - acting isnt difficult. getting discovered is. maybe she realises this?. maybe other actors feel too highly about themselves?. i think she has a great balance and mature outlook. aS she said, shes not saving lives every day.

Was she really shooting this Wednesday series in Romania?
farrex0 9 mesi fa
@Tim N I wouldn't say that acting is the most difficult thing ever, it is not even the most difficult thing to do in the film industry... Actors are clearly overvalued, but I think you are going to the other extreme. Just watch independent and low budget films, and how often bad acting is extremely prevalent there. If it was just a matter of getting noticed, and it was as easy as you make it out to be, decent acting would be more common. Yet watching low budget films, is almost painful and sometimes hilarious, how bad acting is the norm. So of course, acting is not like being a doctor or a physicist. It is also not hard, in terms that it is not hard labor (Unless you do stunts). But I wouldn't say it is easy either. If it was, you would see more prevalence of good actors, but there isn't. Now, what might be too easy, would be typecast acting. Where the person doesn't even have to act, the character is way too similar to who they are in real life. So they just are themself.

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.

As a nurse myself who has seen all the business, that little shoutout to her mom made me tear up.

We all heal each other and save lives in different ways.

Warning: Dead Inside
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.

grazia23 10 mesi fa
I disagree completely, everyone seems to be trying too hard. Gomez comes up as a creeper, Zeta-Jones’s Morticia tries but those shoes are way too big to fill in. Anjelica Huston’s Norticia is just too brilliant. I’m regards to Wednesday, there’s still something lacking, idk if it’s a because 30 years ago the character was something whe never saw before and today it’s more common to find a female character with a dead stare (Any character played with Aubrey Plaza). For me it was lacking that very thing that would make her an Addams. I do think that’s more due to the writing. Saying “Black Dahlia, named after one of my favourite y resolver homicides” it’s kind of lazy writing today. It won’t have the same shock it did 30 years ago. You’re average Joe might say that today (culture has shifted). But well, it also has Tim Burton in it who tries too hard to be anti establishment and ends up delivering the same every time (if it’s not a piece of his very own invention).

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.

I only watched 3 episodes, but I think Jenna did an tremendous job. Wednesday is emotionless at the first view, but she is never stiff or robotic. There is so much emotion that she managed to show through subtle eyebrow play or relaxing her face muscles. Great great job!

Wait til you see her reaction to a movie in one of the episodes. Just by looking at her eyes alone, she expressed so much without changing her facial expression much or at all even. That scene made me laugh and I’m only telling you this much because I found it funny when watching it myself and I think you’ll see how funny it is by watching.

I really, really do appreciate how Jenna recognizes that this is a different interpretation of the character and has leaned into it.

Please make a serious out of this with other actors and actresses! This is a great style of video!! As fans we love hearing the inner workings of what the actors day to day life was during the show, ways they went about acting and filming, etc. Great video!

jenna is an amazing actress, playing wednesday was certainly not easy playing a character with few expressions must be very difficult, but i think she is a complete actress.

The fact that she wanted to pay homage and respect to the original character is absolutely what made her wednesday so incredible and it came through the lense and thank God there was hardly any pretentious polarizing political propaganda/grandstanding I can't stand writers and producers that have an obvious moral superiority complex use the industry to prop themselves up as modern day messiah's I really hope next season Wednesday's wholesome and adorable friend Enid shifts into a wolf and let's wednesday ride on her back that would be both cute and epic 😁

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 ?

For Jenna she had a familiar face to me but I don’t actually think I’ve ever seen her in anything before so I get what you mean. It wasn’t her name but her face did that for me. Must means she is where she is supposed to be.

Perhaps you had heard of Kenny Ortega before and the last name stuck with you.

I love to see that along with Jenna being an incredible actress she is a very intelligent and articulate young woman.

“My mom is in the ER and she saves lives” well said Jenna. I was already a fan after her role in You but after this video she’s easily one of my top ten actresses. Looking forward to seeing Netflix’s Wednesday today.

I would definitely say she is an old soul. Such a maturity for her age as a person and it does reflect in her acting.

Remakes or reimaginings often don't quite hit the mark for me, but as someone who was obsessed with the 90s Addams Family movies this show was perfection. I love that it captured the kooky spookiness of those films, whilst also paying homage to the original Addams Family roots AND bringing new life to the story. Jenna was superb and I want every piece of clothing that Wednesday wore stat!

Jenna Ortega is the person who really made me want to be an actor, I had always have these little thoughts about acting and I would brush it off but then i saw Jenna on Wednesday and that's when when I told myself this is what I wan to do I want to be an actor so I thank you Jenna Ortega.

Ever since I saw her in “YOU” she seemed like a very bright and talented girl. I watched the season, and now watching this. Not only does she show dedication, put pure talent shines through. She’s so well mannered too! This is just the beginning for her! ❤
