Here’s what you need to know.
Who is Jenna Ortega?
Jenna Marie Ortega is an American actress. She began her career as a child actress, receiving recognition for her role as young Jane in The CW comedy-drama series Jane the Virgin.
Over the past few months, Jenna Ortega has soared to a new level of global stardom thanks to her starring role as the lead in Addams Family spin-off series Wednesday.
However, she’d already established herself as a bona fide ‘scream queen’ before donning Wednesday’s signature plaits and deadpan mannerisms.
Prior to Wednesday’s premiere on Netflix, Jenna starred in horror films X and Scream, also released this year.
In 2021, she received critical acclaim for her performance in The Fallout, a movie in which she starred opposite Maddie Ziegler as a high school student who suffers the horrific experience of being present during a school shooting.
From 2014 to 2019, she played the younger version of Jane in Jane the Virgin, the comedy-drama series starring Gina Rodriguez as the titular character.
However, her main breakthrough came in Disney Channel series Stuck in the Middle, which saw Jenna actually manifest her role in Wednesday in a spooky coincidence.
