Jenna Ortega recently revealed why her character Wednesday Addams is seen as a gay icon
In a recent interview with Gayety, Jenna was asked why she thinks her character Wednesday Addams is seen as a gay icon. She said, “I think because she’s a badass.”
The Wednesday star told the media outlet, “She’s cool, she’s got a nice sense of style, but she’s somebody who embraces her differences and isn’t out to please anybody. I feel like that’s a really, really powerful thing to see. I feel like people want to see powerful women with powerful women.”
A couple of users think Wednesday as a character may be queer or asexual herself. In the series Wednesday, the character of Wednesday Addams has two male love interests, the first is Xavier and the other is Tyler. However, she isn’t particularly interested in either of them.
While having a chat with MTV News, Jenna spilled the beans on her character Wednesday Addams and stated that she herself doubts that Wednesday will date Xavier in season 2 of the show.
Ortega told the publication, “Now that Tyler’s off the table, I feel like she’s off of boys for a while. I feel like her and Xavier are just getting to a safe place. I think there’s an opportunity there for a really sweet platonic relationship.”
Soon after, Jenna further added, “Because I don’t think it’s shown often enough, men and women having safe platonic relationships that don’t become romantic and are just genuine, almost sibling like relationships. I think that’d be wonderful to see.”
