Wednesday star Jenna Ortega has revealed that she never expected it to be ‘so popular.’
Jenna, who rose to overnight fame after playing the lead role Wednesday Addams on the Addams Family spinoff series, said that she has been more surprised than anyone about the show’s popularity.
Staying true to Wednesday’s essence, Jenna explained that she put a lot of pressure on herself to create her own unique version of the role.
“The character wouldn’t have been as big if it hadn’t been for her performance. I know that I can’t knock anyone off, and I have to do it differently, but the script was also very reminiscent of her, so how can I take this and shift it in my manner?”
