During the filming of the Netflix series "Wednesday," actress Jenna Ortega formed a strong bond with her co-star, Emma Myers. Ortega revealed on the podcast "Armchair Expert With Dax Shepard" that she felt extremely protective of Myers and constantly thought about her well-being.
Ortega, who plays the titular character Wednesday Addams, explained that she and Myers developed a natural and comfortable friendship while shooting the show in Romania. Feeling isolated from her friends and family back home, Ortega relied on her fellow cast members for support. She particularly connected with Myers, who portrays Enid Sinclair, Wednesday's upbeat werewolf roommate.
The "Scream" star shared that she would wake up each day in Romania and send voice memos to Myers, singing her a new song and expressing how beautiful and wonderful she was. Ortega admitted that she had never felt such an intense desire or urge to show affection to anyone else in her life.
Ortega also praised the camaraderie she developed with Percy Hynes White and Georgia Farmer, who played Xavier Thorpe and Ajax Petropolus, respectively. The trio formed a tight-knit bond and cared for one another, supporting each other through their shared experiences.
Myers has also spoken about her close friendship with Ortega, emphasizing their deep connection both on and off-screen. She described Ortega as one of her closest friends and expressed her admiration for Ortega's acting abilities, mentioning her ability to convey emotions even through Wednesday's deadpan character.
The genuine affection and support Ortega and Myers show for each other exemplify the strong bond they formed while working on "Wednesday." Their camaraderie adds an extra layer of authenticity to their on-screen portrayal of Wednesday and Enid's friendship.
