Wednesdays Jenna Ortega debuts an edgy new look
It’s Wednesday Addams like you’ve never seen her before.
Jenna Ortega, who plays the title character in Netflix’s new Addams Family spinoff series on Wednesday, unveiled an edgy new look. The brunette actress swapped her medium-length locks for a cheeky chopped layered bob. In a Dec. 16 Instagram post and an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the 20-year-old shows off her new hairstyle while wearing a metal chain waist trainer over a black semi-sheer maxi dress with a white collar and black platform pumps.
Ortega, who wears hair extensions braided into two pigtails to transform into Wednesday’s show, spoke along Jimmy Fallon about how she created her character’s now-viral dance The cramps‘ song “Goo Goo Muck” from 1981.
Ortega told Jimmy Fallon she wanted to choreograph the dance herself. “[Burton] was like, ‘I know you have it. You worked on it. I’m not even worried about that. I trust you.’ And I was like, ‘Oh yeah, you know, it’s all so good,'” the actress said, before adding, “I hadn’t looked into it at all.”
