Wednesday star Jenna Ortega has recalled a “weird” moment she had with a fan whilst on a plane.

The actress, who played the titular character in Netflix’s spin-off to The Addams Family, was part of a comedy roundtable for The Hollywood Reporter, and referenced a moment she had during a flight.

“Wednesday has a much wider audience than I anticipated, at least age wise, so it’s older people and younger people,” she began. “But I’ve had a couple of weird plane stories, too, where I’ve woken up to notes or things like that.

“I got off one yesterday, and at the end, the flight attendant took her hair down out of the bun and it was in two braids and she took her bangs down and she said: ‘You made me do this.’”

The actress also spoke about her newfound role as a producer for Wednesday, which will begin from the second season: “I feel really, really fortunate to be coming on as a producer this time around.

“Any of the best teams or environments that I’ve been on on set have been people who are very collaborative and wanted to hear different opinions because it’s very easy for people to get caught up in their own. I think a project is best when there’s as many voices and ideas thrown out as possible,” she continued.

Ortega, who also stars in the Scream franchise, recently teased the developments of the upcoming episodes, revealing that the show wouldn’t feature any storylines involving romance

“We’re ditching any romantic love interest for Wednesday, which is really great,” she told Variety. “We’ve decided we want to lean into the horror aspect of the show a little bit more.

“Because it is so lighthearted, and a show like this with vampires and werewolves and superpowers, you don’t want to take yourself too seriously,” she added.
