Ever since her breakout role as the iconic Wednesday Addams, Jenna Ortega has been leaving an indelible mark on Hollywood. Now, with whispers of her association with the legendary Tim Burton's sequel to Beetlejuice, the hype is real!
Stepping Into the Haunting Shadows
In 1988, the world was introduced to a chaotic, ghostly character named Beetlejuice, who, once summoned, brought forth pure mayhem. Fast forward to today, and with the news of a sequel in the works, fans are buzzing with excitement, especially with the possibility of Ortega joining the legacy. According to sources, if cast, Ortega is set to play "the daughter of Ryder’s former goth teen, Lydia." Given her recent gothic roles and undeniable talent, the fit seems just about perfect.
From Wednesday Triumphs to Beetlejuice Challenges?
Tim Burton's Wednesday series showcased Ortega in a new light, capturing the hearts of both new fans and die-hard Addams Family enthusiasts. Jenna's commitment to her roles was evident when she mentioned, "I don’t think I’ve ever had to put my foot down on a set in a way that I had to on Wednesday." But her upcoming venture, if confirmed, might come with its own set of challenges. Given that she's likely to work with the same showrunners from Wednesday, Alfred Gough and Miles Millar, on Beetlejuice 2, there's speculation on how smooth the collaboration might be. Reflecting on her experience, Ortega shared instances where she felt compelled to change lines on set, leading to intense discussions with the writers.
Yet, amidst the whirlwind of her Hollywood journey, Ortega's admiration for Burton shines through. “It’s been quite an insane experience,” she expressed, praising him as one of the most detail-oriented and sweetest directors she's had the pleasure of working with.
A Glimpse Beyond the Goth Persona
While the world eagerly awaits confirmation on her role in Beetlejuice 2, Jenna Ortega is all set to bring some laughter on Saturday Night Live on March 11. A chance for the audience to witness the multifaceted talents of this rising star beyond her signature gothic roles.
Indeed, whether she's embracing the dark, mysterious charm of her characters or lighting up the stage with humor, Jenna Ortega continues to prove that she's not just a one-trick pony. The goth queen of Hollywood is here to reign and shine!
