Wednesday star Jenna Ortega, 20, headed ‘home’ to Indio, California in the Coachella Valley for the annual music festival.

The Scream actress was born and raised there. She shared three snaps on Monday on Instagram of herself looking ready to hit the chic and trendy scene of the Coachella Music and Arts Festival.

Jenna, who is said to be ‘circling’ a role in the Beetlejuice sequel, wore a short-sleeved, sheer black top over a black bra. She paired it with very short denim shorts with a frayed hem.

She wore a pair of black trainers with black crew socks and a pair of round-lensed sunglasses. A bandana was tied around her neck and her hair was pulled back.

She captioned the post: ‘home’ and added a heart emoji.

Jenna shot to stardom playing Wednesday Addams in the hit Netflix show Wednesday.

But last month she revealed she almost turned down her breakout role.

‘I got the email, passed on it. I had done so much TV in my life, all I’ve ever wanted to do is film,’ she said in an interview with The Times.

‘I was scared that by signing on to another television show it could prevent me from doing other jobs I really wanted and cared about.’

Jenna went on to explain that is was the lure of director Tim Burton that persuaded her to give the job a second chance.

‘Tim is such a legend, and we just happened to get along very well. But even then I said, ‘Ah, no — I think I’m OK,’ a couple [more] times.’

Jenna started acting professionally from the age of nine and scored a lead role on the Disney Channel series, Stuck in the Middle.

She then went on to star in several horrors, Insidious: Chapter 2, The Babysitter: Killer Queen, American Carnage and season two of Netflix’s serial-killer series You.

This coupled with her current film Scream VI, which had an opening box office of $44 million – the most in the storied franchise’s history – has led many to call Jenna as the newest ‘scream queen’.

She said: ‘For some reason people see my face and want to throw blood on it … I don’t know what it is. I’ve had a horror director tell me once my eyes looked like they could be very innocent. It was never intentional, but it’s really fun.’

It comes after it was reported that Jenna is eyeing a reunion with director Tim in his long-awaited sequel Beetlejuice 2.

The movie star is reportedly ‘circling’ a role in Burton’s sequel, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

If a deal comes together, Jenna will be portraying the daughter of Lydia Deetz, portrayed by Winona Ryder in the original 1988 classic.

Michael Keaton is expected to return as the title character, though it’s unclear if other original stars such as Alec Baldwin, Geena Davis, Catherine O’Hara and Jeffrey Jones will also be back.

The Warner Bros. sequel is eyeing a May or June production start in London, though the budget is still not set quite yet so there has still been a ‘back and forth’ with the production and the studio.

Reps for both Warner Bros. and Jenna have not yet responded for comment.
