Jenna Ortega Didn't Ask Christina Ricci Advice On Playing Wednesday Addams For Fear Of Ripping Her Off


Christina Ricci’s character on “Wednesday” isn’t anything like her previous “Addams Family” persona. She plays Maryllin Thornhill, a teacher at Nevermore Academy who’s harboring a secret. That said, even though Ricci wasn’t hired to reprise the “Addams Family” character, she may have been willing to lend advice to Jenna Ortega.

However, the conversation never came up, according to the actress who plays the new Wednesday. “I think when [Ricci] was on set, neither one of us said Wednesday once to each other,” Ortega told MTV News. “I don’t think she wanted to get in the way of my performance and feel like she was overbearing.”

Ortega continued by saying that she didn’t want to bring up a topic that Ricci has probably discussed quite a lot in the last 30 years, especially in case it influenced her own performance. “For the sake of my own benefit, but two, yeah, I didn’t want to rip her off and I didn’t want to be too much like her.”
