'Wednesday' Star Jenna Ortega To Take Time Off From Her Busy Filming Schedule


Since 'Wednesday,' Jenna Ortega has been an in-demand actor. Ready to go off the grid for a while, she's got herself a flip phone.

In an interview with Elle magazine, she talked about still coming to terms with newfound stardom and finding ways to protect herself.

After starring in the Disney sitcom 'Stuck In The Middle' for three seasons, she transitioned into more mainstream roles.

She appeared as Ellie in the second season of 'You.'  Soon, she found success with another Netflix show 'Wednesday' for her portrayal of the titular goth teen.

Jenna Ortega initially passed on the 'Wednesday,' thinking it would prevent her from being in the movies.

Reportedly, Tim Burton is eyeing Jenna Ortega to star in the 'Beetlejuice' sequel. Jenna Ortega will play the daughter of Winona Ryder's character.

In the interview with Elle magazine, Jenna Ortega also admitted to being selective with the projects she's picking.

Admittedly, she won't be a part of projects where she's "being the sidekick who carries the Puerto Rican flag on her shoulder and makes it her entire personality."
