Jenna Ortega He has shown that he does not mince words when it comes to expressing what did not convince him about the first installment of ‘Wednesday’. In fact, this past March he went so far as to affirm that “it did not make sense“The love triangle in which her character was involved and her complaint has not fallen on deaf ears, since she herself has revealed that there will be none of that in season 2.
“I didn’t want to screw up with her”
During his talk with elle fanning In a new installment of Variety’s Actors on Actors, Ortega has commented that “we’re getting rid of any romantic love interests for wednesday, which is great“. His great involvement in the project has surely been key to this, something that he has expressed in the following words:
We had already considered many ideas, and I am a very practical person. I want to know what is happening. And with a character like Wednesday, so beloved and so legendary, I didn’t want to screw up with her. So I try to have as many conversations as possible. On the set, with the writers and Tim Burton, we would all get together and decide, ‘Okay, what works and what doesn’t? Naturally, it was already very collaborative, so in preparing for a second season, we wanted to go ahead and make sure we could start the conversations sooner. And I’m very curious. I want to see the costumes, the new characters that are coming, the scripts, and they were kind enough to let me get involved as a producer.
For my part, I am clear that this romantic triangle was the worst of the first season of ‘Wednesday’, so I am glad to know that it is something that they are going to leave completely aside. And also It gives me good vibes that Ortega promises the following:
We have decided to lean a little more on the terrifying side of the series. Because it’s so light, a series like this with vampires, men and superpowers, you can’t take yourself too seriously.
She herself is aware that in many works the actors are nothing more than puppets at the service of other peoplebut also that “The best experiences I’ve had, the jobs I’m most proud of, have always been the ones where I feel heard“.
