23 Mar – Fans of the Addams Family would be glad to know that Christina Ricci will be a part of the Tim Burton-Netflix "Addams Family" spinoff, "Wednesday".
The actress, who was synonymous with the character Wednesday when she played the role twice in 1991 and 1993, is revealed to be playing a major role in the live-action show, but not as the adult version of Wednesday herself.
Details are kept under wraps for now, but it was reported that Ricci was brought in after Thora Birch exited the show in the midst of production.
The upcoming series will star Jenna Ortega as the titular character, with Catherine Zeta-Jones playing Morticia Addams and Luis Guzman as Gomes Addams. Other cast members include Georgie Farmer, George Burcea, and Gwendoline Christie.
Filming is set to wrap in Romania at the end of the month.
