Is there anything Jenna Ortega can’t do? In the new Netflix series “Wednesday”, Ortega plays the role of Wednesday Addams, and as part of her preparatory process, she has to learn how to play the cello. She also took on the role of choreographer to execute one of the series’ most memorable moments.
Episode four, entitled “Wow What a Night,” sees the students of Nevermore Academy, a segregated school, Rave’N dance. Wednesday reluctantly gets involved with Tyler Galipin (Hunter Doohan). As The Cramps’ “Goo Goo Muck” plays, Wednesday takes to the dance floor and drops her cutest moves.
In a recent behind-the-scenes video, Ortega and her friends watched the show, and she explained, “I felt really insecure about it. I choreographed that myself and I think it’s pretty clear that I’m not a dancer or a choreographer.
In a recent interview with Vulture, Ortega revealed more details about the sequence. Not only was it her choreography debut, but Ortega also put the moves together just days before director Tim Burton shot the sequence.
as if Twitter, Ortega said her dance moves were inspired by many people, including, “Siouxsie Sioux, Bob Fosse’s Rich Man’s Frug, Lisa Loring, Lene Lovich, Denis Lavant, and goths dancing in clubs in the ’80s.” It helped me in this regard. “
One eagle-eyed fan paid homage to the 1960s TV series “The Addams Family,” saying, “They threw a move in there that was a tribute to John Astin Gomez.” Don’t think we can’t see you. good job.”
Loring’s prestige is also available for side-by-side comparison. Loring revealed Wednesday in his first series.
