The star of the Netflix series 'Wednesday', Jenna Ortega, seems to have always displayed traits of a "weirdo." During an Autocomplete Interview with Wired on YouTube, Ortega discusses the formation of a close relationship with her 'Fallout' co-star Maddie Zieglar and shares a peculiar act she used to perform when she was younger.

"She's one of my greatest friends ever. She was somebody that I instantly clicked with. We did a movie called 'The Fallout' a couple years back, and I feel like Maddie and I are the same person in different fonts," Ortega stated. "She's such a weirdo and I'm a weirdo in the way I used to perform autopsies on little animals when I was younger." Ortega describes her personality in more detail and also mentions what makes Zieglar's persona eccentric. "Little lizards that I found that were dead in my backyard. She's a weirdo in the sense that she breaks out into characters or movements or makes faces," Ortega stated. "Her comedic timing is so underappreciated. She makes me laugh. We have a good time. We're really weird together."

Ortega admitted that she can be a touch crazy during an interview on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'. The 'You' actress discussed working with Christina Ricci, who played Wednesday Addams in the 1991 film 'The Addams Family' and its 1993 sequel.

Ortega said, "I feel like I personally made it a little weird. She was really sweet about it. Me? It was one of the most awkward experiences I've ever had. I think, socially, I can be kind of hard to communicate with at times. And sometimes I would say something as a joke, and I think I have a very dark sense of humor, and she would go, 'Uh, that's dark'." 'Wednesday', which also features Catherine Zeta-Jones, Luis Guzmán, Fred Armisen, and Isaac Ordonez, is now available to stream on Netflix.
