Actors can sometimes look exactly like their characters in certain series, which can make it difficult for some viewers to tell their real selves apart from their characters. This is not the case for the Wednesday cast, as they all look quite different from their characters on screen. The series is set in a very peculiar universe, which explains why the characters' styles had to be eccentric. However, actors from the series, do not wear the same clothes in their everyday lives.

The success of Wednesday on Netflix

341.23 million. This is how many hours of viewing the Netflix show Wednesday has amassed in its first week on the platform, from November 21 to November 27, 2022. The Tim Burton show, which puts forward the Addams family, is a real success and attracts more and more viewers as time goes on. Although Addams family fans highly expected this series for the end of 2022, most people said they could not have imagined falling under Wednesday Addams' spell, played by Jenna Ortega. The young actress, revealed in Disney Channel's Harley, was able to penetrate Tim Burton's mind and impress the audience with her acting skills.

Original dance, creepy mimics... Jenna Ortega perfectly embodies the moody teenager. The role fits her like a glove, but the actress still had to adapt her looks to her character. In real life, Jenna Ortega looks nothing like Wednesday Addams. The 20-year-old actress dares to wear bright colours such as red, pink or green. Although she has brown hair like her character, Jenna does not rock the two iconic braids of her character, at least not every day!

The actress is a brunette in everyday life and usually wears very little makeup. Nevertheless, she looks just as radiant as Wednesday's best friend!

Joy Sunday plays Bianca in Wednesday on Netflix and is just as unrecognizable. The 27-year-old actress does not have the blue-grey eyes of her character. She does, however, have the same haircut.
