Jenna Ortega has recalled some “weird” Wednesday fan interactions she has experienced while traveling.
Since starring in Netflix’s iconic animated horror comedy adaptation of Charles Addams, the 20-year-old actress has become a phenomenon in her own right.
Ortega, 20, admits she wasn’t surprised by the young generation’s warm reception for the series, but what she didn’t anticipate was that it would appeal to older audiences as well.
“Wednesday has a much broader audience than I anticipated, at least by age,” she said in a recent interview. hollywood reporter roundtable with co-stars Elle Fanning, Ayo Adebiri, Devery Jacobs, Natasha Lyonne and Sheryl Lee Ralph.
“So those are the elders And young people [who recognise me],” Ortega added. “But I’ve also had a few weird stories about planes, when I wake up with notes or things like that.”
The former Disney star went on to share the most recent fan interaction she had after getting off the plane.
“I got off a flight yesterday, and finally the flight attendant took her hair out of the bun and braided it into two braids and she pulled her bangs down and said, ‘You did it. I had to do this,'” Ortega recounted.
Wednesdays are famous for their double braids. The Netflix iteration, though, took a more modern approach by adding a border to Ortega’s interface.
Fanning also recounted one of her “funny” encounters with fans on a flight.
“It was a flight at night, I was fast asleep and I was shaking a bit. This woman said, ‘I was just wondering if you have any advice for an actor?’ I said, ‘Just keep going,'” the 25-year-old actor said.
