Jenna Risked Other People's Health 

COVID was at its peak when the shooting of the Netflix series Wednesday was still on the way. 

The actress Jenna suffered from enough COVID virus symptoms during the shooting. 

She still wanted to perform a scene where she had to dance on the stage. 

Knowing that she had many symptoms of COVID virus, she was allowed to shoot with a crew of hundreds of people. 

When Jenna revealed this scenario, many people criticized her. 

She and the production of the Wednesday crew were called selfish for their scene to be completed. They kept many crew members' health at risk.

Pressurized Playing "Wednesday Addam" Character 

Jenna has recently gained a lot of hype for her role in the Wednesday as Wednesday Addams.

But she revealed in an interview that she was under tremendous pressure when she played the role. 

She opened up that another person already did the role of Wednesday Addams perfectly. 

So to portray the same role, being a different person and acting differently, staying in the same character was difficult for her. 

Also, people already had great expectations from the character as the bar was set high. 

She felt tremendous pressure as a single mistake could degrade people's expectations and not meet the level it was presented in the past. 

Fortunately, everyone loved her character; she was stated better than any Wednesday Addams.

Jenna Does Her Stunts

Jenna revealed in an interview that she does her stunts and she loves doing them. 

She revealed that she lives for stunts and she can do anything when it comes to actions. 

She described herself as a crazy person as she gave a heart attack to a stunt director by doing unusual acts. 

She can quickly throw herself into the ground and walls, and not only that, but she can also drive a car at 90 to 100 miles per hour if it's necessary. 

She also expressed that she won't mind using the stunt equipment that she had never used in her life. 

Looking at her age and physicality, it would be hard to believe, but she will do any stunts if told to. 

Jenna Was Not Allowed To Blink

She didn't blink in any scenes, and the series' maker, Tim, really loved her look. 

She revealed that she had to relax all her muscles and stare without blinking, and Tim asked her not to blink throughout the series. 

She was so annoyed because of the idea of not blinking as she couldn't stop at first. 

She blinked because of the wind and other things, so they had to shoot again. 

Moreover, the tears on her face due to not blinking ruined the scenes many times. 

Still, she learned to time the blinking and blinked her eyes when the camera was panned to another character. 

In this way, she got used to her character and did a flawless job.
