Jenna Ortega Shares Similarities Between Her & Wednesday Addams

Jenna Ortega steps out wearing a suit for an appearance on the Today Show on Monday morning (November 21) in New York City.

The 20-year-old actress kicked off her week by promoting her upcoming Netflix series Wednesday.

While on the show, Jenna dished on keeping a straight face while filming, working with Catherine Zeta-Jones and more.

That same day, she also promoted her series, which premieres THIS Wednesday (November 23), on Good Morning America, where she opened up about the similarities she shares with her character.

“I’d been compared to Wednesday my entire life,” she said on GMA. “We’re told that we’re both, you know, very sarcastic and dry, and can be a bit morbid at times. I think [it’s a compliment]. I appreciated it.”

“She’s much more intelligent than I am. I started cello lessons and fencing lessons two months before we started shooting, and then continued throughout the eight month shoot, and then we also did things like archery, I choreographed a dance, we did German, we did canoeing, we did boxing,” Jenna said about the prep for the role. “After work I always had a lesson or something.”
