In episode 4 of the series of the same name, Woe What a Night, Wednesday played by Jenna Ortega dons a black tulle dress and heads to the annual Rave'N ball, where her erratic dance moves take center stage. Jenna Ortega didn't know how Wednesday would perform in this particular environment, but she choreographed the entire dance routine herself: "We talked about the choreography," co-creator Miles Millar told Tudum.
"And then Jenna was like, 'No, no, no. It's in my head." For inspiration, the actress turned to, among other things, the first live action version of Wednesday, played by Lisa Loring: "She does this lateral movement with her hands and with her feet.
I think I did it in a certain part of the dance, as a tribute to her." Perhaps not everyone knows that in the Addams family there has always been a love for the dance floor, in fact even in the original 1964 television series Wednesday danced.
