Jenna Ortega Thinks Christina Ricci Is A "Legend".

The 20-year-old actress plays the title role of Wednesday Addams in Tim Burton's new supernatural series 

and feels honored to follow in the footsteps of Jenna Kristina, 

who played the character on 'The Addams Family' and its sequel 'The Addams. Family Values', in the 90s.

She shared: "Christina Ricci is a legend. "The character wouldn't have been that big if it wasn't for his performance.

I know I can't kill anyone and I'll have to do it differently, 

but the script is too reminiscent of him, so how do I take it?" and turn it in my own way?"

The 42-year-old actress - who plays a new character in the Netflix show - said: "I love the spirit in which they were making the show. 

It really captures the spirit of Wednesday - that dignity, that incredible look. 

From a confident young girl who knows who she is and won't change or please other people.
