Netflix recently released a live action reboot series of the classic show The Addams Family and it looks to be a knockout series. With fan favorites such as Finn Wolfhard, Consequences Creeps, and Charlize Theron, ‘Wednesday’ played by Jenna Ortega, stands out in its own right.

With her childlike energy, sharp wit and amazing comedic timing, Ortega proves to be a formidable presence in the cast.

She also shows a great deal of insight into how other characters feel and understand the complexities of being part of the Addams family.

In an interview with Variety, Ortega said she “wanted to bring a different element to the character of Wednesday that the fans hadn’t seen before. I wanted to make sure she was funny and still embodied the notions of Wednesday’s suave darkness.” Ortega certainly achieved her goals, as her performance as Wednesday Addams exceeded viewers’ expectations.

The Netflix reboot of The Addams family is an incredible series for audiences of all ages and Jenna Ortega as Wednesday takes it to a whole new level. Finally, with a show’s characters that are as diverse and strong as the Addams’ family, Wednesday is the perfect choice to lead the charge.
