    As someone who played the violin as a child, I have to say Jenna did a really a great job with the cello. It always annoys me when actors don't match he bowing/fingering of the music, but she nailed it.

      I play the cello, and her playing seemed very good! it would have helped if it didn't sound like she was playing all 5 instruments at once of Vivaldi's Winter, but still very good in this day and age.

    The fact that she learned the cello for this role shows how much of a dedicated actor she is. As a cello, bass, violin, piano, and guitar player it’s not easy to learn how to play the cello in such short times.

It seems as though she was given incorrect direction in order to mime. But overall lets cut her some slack she only had 8 months of practice...

Seeing that article pop-up I assumed this was a flop, but seeing everybody here raving about her performance just makes me incredibly impressed that she seems to've pulled off a great performance despite the irregular non-optimal circumstances.

    I really, really do appreciate how Jenna recognizes that this is a different interpretation of the character and has leaned into it. While I certainly love seeing a character be the same regardless of the person behind the story itself, I also just adore it whenever a character is malleable enough to shift with the narrative.

    I don’t know why Glenn Close keeps coming back to mind when I think of Jenna Ortega. Perhaps it’s that superb balance between talent and craft - or the love and attention to scary, unconventional roles.
    Either way, if there is any justice in this world, this young lady is going to go very far and become a mega star.

      @BILL MURRAY I think Raul and Angelica were a good Gomez and Morticia as leads for the The Addams Family movies in the 90s. In 2022, the actors of Morticia and Gomez were a good casting choice for the TV series based on th pov of their teenage daughter, Wednesday, whose the lead. Casting and Concept would be different given the director and time.

      @Twenty One Tortas I like how you think you know how he should be portrayed, like Tim Burton doesn't know what he's doing with his own characters. It's people like you this world doesn't need. People who can't stand change and are threatened by it

      @R I think Tim Burton knows how to write for his own characters. It's funny how you keyboard warriors think you know what's best. If you don't like it, don't watch it.

    It’s weird, when I looked up the cast of Wednesday, I read the name Jenna Ortega and this name was so familiar to me but I realized that I’ve actually never heard of her before. The name Jenna Ortega sounded as familiar as an adult actress who has been famous for many years so I was kinda shocked to find out that Jenna is only 20 years old.
    Something similar happens when stranger things first became popular, I googled the cast and read the name Millie Bobbie brown and thought she’s one of the many famous adult actresses who has been acting for many years and I was also very shocked to find out that Millie was only like 13 years old. Did this happen to someone else or just me ?

      For Jenna she had a familiar face to me but I don’t actually think I’ve ever seen her in anything before so I get what you mean. It wasn’t her name but her face did that for me. Must means she is where she is supposed to be.

    Honestly, my favorite part of how she portrays Wednesday is her micro expressions. She keeps her deadpan expression throughout the show but is able to make these small subtle changes, allowing the audience to see how she's really feeling. Which is important since Wednesday is the main character. It's so unique and fascinating to watch.
