Wednesday Star Jenna Ortega Refused To Say Lines Because Of This Reason

It’s an actor’s duty, although it is not a responsibility that only they carry, to make sure that the character they are playing is as true to the source material as possible. Jenna Ortega, star actor of Wednesday is one such actor that is dedicated to being faithful to her character’s nature.

In a recent Q&A video with Netflix, the 20-year-old actor revealed that she had omitted a line that she was originally supposed to say in the 4th episode of the TV series, titled “Woe, What a Night”

As fans can recall, she was referring to a scene in the episode where her character spots a black dress in a shop window that she really liked. The line to be said, according to Ortega, was-

“Oh my God I’m freaking out over a dress, I literally hate myself.”

Fans would think this is a pretty normal thing for Wednesday Addams to say. But Ortega ended up not saying that line at all as she thought it would sound inhuman. Adding that other pessimistic lines were also avoided as they would make her character sound too inhuman.

Regardless, the show still delivers a packing punch that keeps you entertained. Considering that Tim Burton directed 4 out of 8 episodes of the TV show, it would have only been natural for her to say such a self-deprecating line.
