Wednesday, a popular series on Netflix, has quickly become a smash hit. Today, it is one of the most successful Netflix productions of all time. She just felt it was not the appropriate move in her career.
Jenna Ortega has turned down her role of Wednesday several times.
Jenna Ortega, 19, spoke about her hit series in an interview with The Times U.K. Several times, she said she was offered the role several times and she repeatedly declined. "I received the email and she [die Rolle] was rejected. I wanted to be a filmmaker." says the actress.
Tim Burton, the filmmaker who was supposed to bring the Addams Family reboot to life, was the reason why she accepted her offer. There is another reason why Ortega initially resisted.
Jenna Ortega assumed that no one was paying attention to Wednesday's performances.
Obviously, the American herself did not anticipate the incredible success of the Netflix series. She herself considered Wednesday a "nice little gem that someone discovers," but "[die meisten würden es übersehen"; she answered with a clear yes.
"I did Disney shows when I was younger." "I didn't understand where I was," she recalls. "When I first see it up close, I felt a bit out of place. [...] Then things settled down a bit and I lived a fairly normal life...until 'Wednesday,' I've thought.
Jenna Ortega, who is from the United States, has appeared in larger and smaller roles since she was born. At the end of last year, she made her major international breakthrough as Wednesday. A second season of the popular series has already been released. In the horror film Scream 6, she can be seen on the big screen.
