Jenna Ortega revealed she almost didn't take the role of “Wednesday.”

The actress disclosed that she thought it would prevent her from getting movie roles.

She said she eventually joined the cast because of Tim Burton.

Ortega wasn't expecting “Wednesday” to become such a popular TV show.

She shared that she thought the show would be just a little gem “for people to discover.”

Ortega hoped the viral “Wednesday” dance would go unnoticed.

She revealed she feigned excitement at its popularity.

Ortega says she felt like the people’s princess as a Disney child star.

She says she's grateful for period of anonymity.
