Who is Jenna Ortega that everyone is talking AboutBy Pictolic https://pictolic.com/en/article/who-is-jenna-ortega-that-everyone-is-talking-about
Netflix has once again pleased us with a new project that everyone has been waiting for for so long. This is the story of Wednesday Addams, told by the magnificent Tim Burton. The role of a sophisticated cruel young lady went to a young actress Jenna Ortega, who immediately became famous. Now they talk and write about her everywhere, and we decided to figure out what it was about this girl that bribed the public.
Jenna is the fourth child out of six in a large and very ordinary family. Her mother, a nurse, was surprised when, at the age of six, her daughter announced that she would be an actress. At this age, few people take the kids' statements seriously. But Mom still bought Jenna a book with dramatic monologues. She diligently rehearsed, and one day her parents posted a video of the girl's performance on social networks.
The girl, who was undoubtedly talented, was noticed in one of the casting agencies. So at the age of 9, she got her first contracts and small, but quite adult earnings. Connections in the entertainment industry have Ortega was not there, so Jenna had to fight her way through herself. Her first projects were very modest: television advertising and cameo roles in children's TV series.
Now Jenna Ortega is 20 years old and she can proudly say that she spent half her life in front of the camera. An important milestone in the career of a young actress was the Disney School of Children's and Teen Shows. This respected organization has already given us Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez and Ryan Gosling. She also helped Jenna grow professionally. She participated in the Chudaardvark project for four years. The schedule was so tight that she even had to leave regular school and start studying at home.
Now it seems that Ortega woke up famous, but it's not. Before Tim Burton noticed her, Jenna had been voicing cartoons for many years, flashing in episodes and doing other "thankless" work. So her success today is the fruit of long and hard work, which could seem completely hopeless.
The first serious work of Jenna in the cinema was the project "You" from Netflix. It was a role already beyond the Disney school, and it became an important milestone. The TV company appreciated Ortega and began to give small, but already noticeable roles. The actress starred in the second "Astral" and "Nanny: Queen of the Damned." These films didn't get much success, but it wasn't Jenna's fault. She tried her best, and they couldn't help but notice her.
Jenna was invited to the rebut of the famous "Scream" franchise. In the film, the girl played Tara, replacing Drew Barrymore from the classic version of horror. The actress has become a real godsend for horror directors. She screams with abandon and depicts on her face literally genuine despair and longing. So gradually Ortega got close to "Wednesday". This is only her second major role. Before that, she managed to play only in the drama "Consequences".
The next film about the life of the Addams family "Wednesday" did not cause the admiration of critics. They accepted Tim Burton's new job very discreetly. But in a matter of days, the film won the hearts of the audience. Many feared that Ortega would be too similar to the usual Wednesday performed by Christina Ricci. Fortunately, this did not happen, and Jenna created her own unique image. It was he who became the key to the success of the project, which no one doubts now.
