Even at a young age, Jenna Ortega has already become a major icon in the world of Hollywood.
Jenna Ortega (also known as Jenna Marie Ortega) is a talented American actress who has significantly impacted the entertainment industry at a young age. Jenna Ortega’s journey in the entertainment industry began when she was just eight years old, appearing in commercials and small television roles.
Ortega’s breakout role came when she played the character of Young Jane on the critically acclaimed television series Jane the Virgin. This opportunity paved the way for her to land various other acting roles in both television and film, and she quickly gained recognition for her talent and versatility as an actress.
Jenna Ortega’s collaboration with Netflix began with her role as Ella Lopez in the third season of the popular series You. This marked a significant turning point in her career, as it introduced her to a global audience and established her as a prominent name in the streaming platform’s roster of talent. However, it was Ortega’s portrayal of Wednesday Addams in Netflix’s reboot of The Addams Family franchise that truly cemented her relationship with Netflix.
Wednesday not only showcased Jenna Ortega’s acting abilities but also introduced her to an even broader audience. Her range as an actress, navigating the character’s complex blend of dark humor and unique personality, demonstrated her versatility. Fans watching at home fell in love with Wednesday due to the modern twist into the iconic role. Wednesday is directed by none other than legendary Tim Burton.
Tim Burton is known as a director, producer, and writer. Burton is also known for his distinctive and imaginative style, often characterized by dark, Gothic, and quirky themes. He has directed a wide range of films over the years, some of which have become iconic in the world of cinema. Some of Tim Burton’s films include Beetlejuice (1988), Edward Scissorhands (1990), Sleepy Hollow(1999), Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005), Corpse Bride (2005), Frankenweenie (2012), Dumbo (2019) and many more films.
Due to the SAG-AFTRA Strikes, several projects have been on hold or stopped due to backlash. Netflix has revealed that the second season of Wednesday is a top priority once the ongoing SAG-AFTRA strikes are resolved. Once the strikes stop, it’s already been reported that Jenna Ortega will be busy due to Scream 7 and Beetlejuice 2.
With the strike still in full force, they have decided to introduce new restrictions. SAG-AFTRA has issued guidelines regarding Halloween costumes for actors and actresses during the strikes, prohibiting them from dressing as characters from struck content. Members are encouraged to opt for costumes inspired by non-struck content, such as animated TV shows, and avoid posting photos of costumes inspired by struck content on social media. So this means if Jenna Ortega wanted to dress as Wednesday Addams for Halloween, she would not be allowed to.
What are your thoughts on the latest rules on actors and actresses being unable to dress as their characters due to the strikes and backlash?
