Al Gough told TVLine Challenges of including Ricci in the cast:“We weren’t sure we could do it because Christina was filming Yellowjackets and she was pregnant. We had to reschedule because she really wanted to do it. She worked with Tim at Sleepy Hollow, she loved Wednesday and she loved the idea.” It was really important for us to honor the legacy of those who came before.”.
About the new translator, Jenna Ortega, Gough emphasized:“He felt like an old soul on Wednesday. His approach was really clear, he worked on his posture, his unblinking and how he delivered lines. He’s 95% of the show.”.
