"Wednesday": Co-Star Christina Ricci Says Jenna Ortega Has a Great Modern Take on Addams Family Character

Christina Ricci, who played Wednesday Addams in two previous Addams Family films, co-stars alongside the new Wednesday Addams actress Jenna Ortega in director Tim Burton‘s upcoming “Wednesday” TV series from Netflix. In a recent interview this week with Variety, Ricci had some positive things to say about Ortega portraying the role of the beloved character.

While speaking with the site, Ricci shared the following comments:

Jenna is incredible. I saw some of the wardrobe photos before I went [to set] so I knew [what she looked like in character] and I was like, it’s such a great modern take on Wednesday. It’s so true tonally to the heart and soul of [the original], but it’s then it’s incredibly modern and it’s great.

The series takes place when:

“Wednesday’s attempts to master her emerging psychic ability, thwart a monstrous killing spree that has terrorized the local town, and solve the supernatural mystery that embroiled her parents 25 years ago — all while navigating her new and very tangled relationships.”
