What did the actors say about the series?
Speaking to NME in an exclusive interview, Ortega teased her inspiration for Wednesday—the famously moody and sickly character who holds a disembodied hand for a pet and dresses mostly in black.
“I watched a lot of the Siouxsie clip & The Banshees “Happy House,” she said. “I’m a little uneasy because I disrupted a couple of her movements. There’s a piece in Wednesday’s dance [Rave’N] where I jump to the left and spread my arms to the sides, and that’s what [Siuxi] did on stage later in her career.
“There is also a movement that she does for a very long time when she sings at the microphone stand [Ortega imitates a hand movement], and I did it as a filler while I was waiting for the camera to move. I had to improvise a lot.”
Ortega also revealed that she fought COVID for the same dance scene.
“I woke up and — it’s strange, I never get sick, and when I get sick, it’s not very bad — I had pains in my body,” she said. “I felt like I had been hit by a car and that a little goblin had burst out of my throat and was scratching the walls of my esophagus. They gave me medications between takes because we were waiting for a positive result.”
“I asked to redo it, but we didn’t have time,” she added. “I think maybe I could do it a little better…”
