“It’s super fun. I loved working with Tim [Burton],” said the actress in an interview with Variety.

 “I worked with Gwendolyn Christie, it was amazing. And Jenna is incredible,” she continued.

“I saw some of the wardrobe photos before I went [to set] so I knew [what she looked like in character] and I was like, it’s such a great modern take on Wednesday. It’s so true tonally to the heart and soul of [the original], but it’s then it’s incredibly modern and it’s great.”

“Wednesday” is a live-action, comedic coming-of-age tale that is described as a “sleuthing, supernaturally-infused mystery charting Wednesday Addams’ years as a student at Nevermore Academy.”
