Jenna Ortega couldn’t sleep for two days ahead of Wednesday’s viral dance scene

Wednesday Star Jenna Ortega has revealed she couldn’t sleep for two days while preparing for the show’s viral dance scene.

In Tim Burton’s hit Netflix series, Ortega’s Wednesday Addams invites her great love Xavier (Percy Hynes White) to their school’s rave’n dance.

While The Cramps’ 1981 single “Goo Goo Muck” plays during the nightly event, Wednesday treats Xavier to an eccentric dance routine.

The routine, which Ortega choreographed himself, quickly went viral and has since become a TikTok trend.

Speaking to late-night talk show host Jimmy Fallon, Ortega said she was “kicking herself” over her decision to invent the dance scene herself.

“I felt like an idiot,” she said. “I’m not a dancer. I don’t do any of this. I have no experience in this area. And then I didn’t sleep for two days.”

Ortega said she was inspired by videos of Siouxsie and the Banshees and archival footage of “goth kids dancing in clubs in the ’80s.”

“I paid my respects to Lisa Loring, the first Wednesday Addams,” she said. “I did a bit of her shuffle that she does. And of course they cut the camera off when I did. But it is there – I know it.”
