Christina Ricci, a name that resonates with many as the Wednesday Addams from the 90s, has made a significant impact on the set of Netflix’s mega-hit series ‘Wednesday’, where she plays Marilyn Thornhill. Her co-star, Jenna Ortega, who has taken on the role of Wednesday Addams, recently shared her experiences working with the seasoned actress.
Ortega,. 20 years old, expressed her initial intimidation at the prospect of working with Ricci, a figure she deeply respects. “I was almost intimidated to work with her just because I respect her so much as an actor,” Ortega confessed in an interview with WSJ. Magazine. The surreal experience of dressing up as the character Ricci portrayed 30 years ago was not lost on the young actress.
However, Ricci’s demeanor on set was far from intimidating. Ortega described her as playful and fully immersed in her role. “She loves to play. Seeing her twist and watching her become the villain, I feel like that’s such a natural turn for her. And I mean that as the greatest compliment possible,” Ortega added.
Ricci’s influence extends beyond her on-screen performance. Her presence on set and her approach to her character have left a lasting impression on Ortega. The young actress even found herself resonating with the goth style of Wednesday Addams, a style she has come to embrace as her own.
Ortega’s experience working with Ricci is a testament to the latter’s enduring influence in the industry. Ricci’s portrayal of Wednesday Addams in the 90s left a lasting legacy, and her current role in the Netflix series continues to inspire a new generation of actors.
As the series moves into its second season, with Ortega now stepping into a producer role as well as reprising her role as Wednesday Addams, the influence of Christina Ricci continues to be felt. Her legacy, both as the 90s era Wednesday Addams and as a mentor to the new generation, is a testament to her enduring talent and influence in the industry.
