It looks like Jenna Ortega had such a crazy experience working on the first season of Tim Burtonof Netflix series wednesday. The show was great, but Ortega went through hell. We have already read stories of how she cried hysterically, couldn’t sleep, and combed her hair due to her grueling schedule.

He also used to talked about several directors who worked on the show said that “everyone wants different things from him,” making his Wednesday portrayal confusing and difficult. He explained: “There have never been so many chefs in the kitchen. I was completely lost and confused. Normally I have no problem using my voice, but when you’re on – I remember feeling defeated after the first month.

We’re now learning from Ortega that during production on the show, he also changed scripts without telling the writers because they didn’t make sense to him in terms of the character. While speaking The Armchair Expert Podcasthe explained:

“After reading the entire series, I realized, ‘Oh, this is for a younger audience.’ When I first got on the show, I didn’t have all the scripts. I thought it would be too dark. It wasn’t like that… I didn’t know what the tone was or how it sounded.”

He then opened up about some of the things that didn’t make sense to his character and admitted why he started to change things up and became almost professional in the process:

“I don’t think I’ve ever had to put my foot down more in a set than I did on Wednesday. Everything Wednesday did, everything I had to play, didn’t make sense for his character at all. Will she be in a love triangle? It didn’t make sense. There was a line about a dress she had to wear to a school dance and she said, “Oh my god, I love it. Ugh, I can’t believe I just said that. I literally hate myself. I I had to go, ‘No.’ There were times on that set where I was almost unprofessional, and I just started changing lines. The script supervisor thought I was on to something. , then I had to sit down with the writers and they were like, “Wait, what happened to the scene?” And I had to go and explain why I couldn’t do certain things.

Thus, he played a big role in shaping the wonderful version of the character that we see in the series. He also wanted to make the character his own and was not interested in playing a version of the character without any growth. Ortega continued:

“I was very protective of him. You can’t have a story and have no emotional arc because it’s boring and nobody likes you. It’s funny and cute when you say really harsh, offensive things when you’re little. But then you become a teenager and it’s bad and you know it. There will be fewer excuses.”

She previously explained: “I remember Tim didn’t want me to have any expression or emotion. He wanted a flat surface, and I understand that. It’s funny and great, if you try to move the plot and Wednesday every There’s been a lot of those fights because when I’m creating my own path, I feel like people don’t always believe me, like, ‘Okay, that’s his arc. Here he gets emotional.”

Ortega embarked on an intense journey to bring Wednesday’s character to life, and all his hard work and sacrifices paid off. This show is so good!
