Jenna Ortega started acting at the age of 9. Back then, she had no idea that she’d eventually become Hollywood’s next “scream queen”—an actress known for her roles in scary movies. Ortega started her career in Disney Channel shows like Stuck in the Middle and Elena of Avalor. In 2014, she made the leap to feel-good dramedy as Young Jane in the CW’s Jane the Virgin.
But 10 years and 9 horror projects later, Ortega’s status as scream queen is well established. Now she’s starring in Netflix’s Addams Family-inspired series Wednesday. Ortega will play an updated, mystery-solving version of the psychic goth teen Wednesday Addams.
