Netflix recently announced the return of the record-breaking comedy series Wednesday for another season. This may not be surprising for viewers, given how Jenna Ortega enamored us with her stupendous performance. People have already declared her the best portrayer of this iconic character that television ever saw, and many fans single-handedly give our Scream queen credit for bringing worldwide popularity to the show.
The young actress is currently reigning the social media with her dance sequence and gut-wrenching dialogues. And it wouldn’t be wrong to say that Ortega has delivered something we never expected. Her spooky unblinking eye and deadpan face became the very image of Wednesday that will remain cemented in our minds forever. As of now, we have seen how the California native brought this death-obsessed girl to life. But do you know how this journey toward enormous fame started?

Moreover, she added how the show creator, Tim Burton, was not happy with her pigtails and fringe. The director wanted this latest incarnation of the famous goth girl to look perfect in every way. He took the comb from the hairdresser and gave a touch to it himself.
She then revealed how the excessive use of hair spray made her stiff for about two weeks. And this is how Jenna Ortega went to shoot the deadly piranha scene on the set. Meanwhile, it was not the only awkward thing she experienced when she started working on this project. During the first cast outing, things got weird as the You star had no idea what to say or do and sat silently.
