Jenna Ortega had a different vision for Wednesday Addams’ storyline. Rather than being involved in a love triangle, Ortega wanted her character to focus on personal growth and develop more platonic relationships. Ortega firmly believed that Wednesday Addams would not be entangled in a love triangle.

During an interview with ETalk, Ortega expressed her early reservations to the writers about her character’s romantic involvement, stating, “I told [the writers] very early on that I didn’t want her to be in the middle of a love triangle. I’ve always been against the love triangle idea.” She further explained her determination to challenge the love triangle narrative, particularly regarding the male characters, saying, “As far as the boys went, I had to accept it — but honestly, I’m going to fight this love triangle thing so hard. Because I don’t think Wednesday would ever be in a love triangle.”

Instead, Ortega wanted to explore the personal growth of her character. She believed that Wednesday Addams, despite her seemingly one-dimensional nature, had the potential for various character arcs. Ortega expressed her interest in adding layers of insecurity and relatable teenage qualities to make the character more intriguing. She stated, “Someone like Wednesday seems very one tone. But there are a lot of different routes that you could take with someone like her. Adding those layers of insecurity or those lived-in qualities that make a teenager a teenager is really interesting.”

The actress also highlighted the opportunity to delve deeper into Wednesday Addams’ personality. Previously, the character had been known for delivering quick one-liners and providing comedic relief on the sidelines. However, Ortega embraced the chance to portray real frustration and uncertainty, allowing her to explore and discover new aspects of the character.

The Netflix series, directed by Tim Burton, has garnered immense success by blending various genres such as coming-of-age, supernatural, comedy, and horror. The story revolves around Wednesday Addams as she enrolls at Nevermore Academy, attempting to hone her psychic abilities while simultaneously solving a murder mystery within her new school.

“Especially with a character that we’ve never gotten the opportunity to know well enough, because she’s always been the one-liner, off to the side with a funny punchline,” the actress continued. “To actually have real frustration and uncertainty was really interesting to play and discover.”

The highly successful Tim Burton directed Netflix series is a genre bending coming-of-age, supernatural, comedy, and horror series. It follows the titular character as she attends Nevermore Academy. Wednesday Addams attempts to master her psychic ability, while dressed to the nines, and solve the mystery of a murder at her new school.
