Jenna Ortega, star of Netflix series Wednesday, embarked on a career as an actress, but as she herself revealed, her professional life could have been very different. As a girl she was part of the American Youth Soccer Organization, an American program for the growth of female and male soccer players, which was also attended by Landon Donovan and Alex Morgan.
She said: "I was playing in all forward positions and in some cases even in midfield."
Tim Burton's Wednesday
Wednesday series first season centers on the homonymous Wednesday Addams during her freshman year at Nevermore Academy, as she tries to manage his feelings towards her peers and as she tries to master her incredible powers.
she will also find herself stopping a killing spree that throws the town into a panic, as well as solving the murder mystery involving her parents 25 years ago. One of these concerns the titles of the 8 episodes that made up the first season.
The name of each episode contains, within it, a word woe. The word in question can have a double meaning and each of these fits perfectly with the series. Woe can be understood as big problems or dangers but at the same time it can mean something extremely sad.
The character is in fact several times at the center of danger and is considered a protagonist who is anything but happy. Another detail that has been noticed by fans is, for example, the snapping of fingers. Historical fans of the Addams Family will undoubtedly remember an acronym from many years ago in which the protagonists snapped their fingers at the time.
In the cast, in addition to Jenna Ortega, there are also: Gwendoline Christie (the principal Larissa Weems), Jamie McShane (Sheriff Galpin), Percy Hynes White (Xavier Thorpe), Hunter Doohan (Tyler Galpin), Emma Myers (Enid Sinclair) , Joy Sunday (Bianca Barclay), Naomi J Ogawa (Yoko Tanaka), Moosa Mostafa (Eugene Ottinger), Georgie Farmer (Ajax Petropolus), Riki Lindhome (Dr.ssa Valerie Kinbott) and Christina Ricci (Marilyn Thornhill).
Playing the other iconic members of the Addams family are Catherine Zeta-Jones (Morticia Addams), Luis Guzmán (Gomez Addams) and Isaac Ordonez (Pugsley Addams).
