Wednesday Star Shares Regret At One Popular SceneNetflix

Wednesday has done incredibly well for Netflix, becoming one of its most-viewed shows ever.

But perhaps even bigger than the show itself is the dance scene that's gone totally viral on social media, especially thanks to a TikTok that slapped a high-pitched remix of Lady Gaga's 'Bloody Mary' on top.

Despite all the love for the scene, star Jenna Ortega can't help but think that she could have done it better.

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, the actress said: 'Some of the moves I had planned, some of it was [improvised]. That was one of the scenes that I stay awake at night thinking about.

'There was so much I could have done and should have done. So, the fact that anyone has shown any appreciation or even tried it themselves is unfathomable to me.'

Improvising the dance moves wasn't the only creative input that Ortega had on her character, as she recently revealed that she refused to say a line that she didn't think was in keeping with who Wednesday Addams is as a person.

She explained: 'I remember there’s a line where I’m talking about a dress and initially she was supposed to say: "Oh my God I’m freaking out over a dress, I literally hate myself."

'And I was blown away because that sounded like… it was just a bunch of little things like that. I felt like we were able to avoid a lot of dialogue in an attempt to make her sound human.'

Unsurprisingly (except in that it took so long to announce), Wednesday has been given a second season, something Ortega has admitted to finding 'surreal'. Details about where the plot could go next haven't been revealed yet, but there are some clues as to who the big villain could be.

Wednesday season 1 is available to stream now on Netflix. Contrary to the rumours, it won't be going to Amazon Prime.
