Wednesday, a brand-new Netflix TV series based on The Addams Family’s fictional world, has been a topic of hot debate since its debut. Jenna Ortega’s eight episodes enthrall viewers so thoroughly that they helped the show smash its record for first-day views. But do you know one of the most talked about scenes in the show, Wednesday Dance, was Inspired by Siouxsie Sioux?
By this point, everyone has been won over by Wednesday: the Netflix series with Jenna Ortega as the famous Addams family daughter has won over viewers and critics alike, and one scene, in particular, is practically going viral: the prom scene, which is mentioned everywhere and is already one of the most memorable moments of 2022.
Ortega acknowledged that the most varied personalities, such as the well-known musical director, choreographer, and dancer Bob Fosse, inspired her distinctive motions.
Additionally, in a different context, Siouxsie Sioux, a pioneer of 80s post-punk and gothic music and the lead singer of Siouxsie and the Banshees, is one of the most underappreciated bands ever.
Jenna Ortega expresses her gratitude to the singer in the first place by tweeting about the video and praising this modern Wednesday.
Thanks to Siouxsie Sioux, Bob Fosse’s Rich Man’s Frug, Lisa Loring, Lene Lovich, Denis Lavant, and archival footage of goths dancing in clubs in the 80’s. Helped me out on this one. https://t.co/zlxlv1JUW4— Jenna Ortega (@jennaortega) November 25, 2022
