Ignore the memes: Yes, Gina Ortega went viral when she filmed the viral ‘Wednesday’ dance scene

after release From the Addams original series based on the Netflix family Wednesday, the Internet started its usual, time-honored tradition of preaching a new girl: 20-year-old actress Gina Ortega. And what better way to celebrate a beloved Internet personality? With Mimi, of course. Fans are using the phrase “Gina Ortega Reveals” to promote funny but decidedly false “facts” about Drops And the X an actress. But the meme buries some of the most interesting (and true) information about photography Wednesday Ortega caught COVID during her now famous goth prom scene.

next WednesdayThe prom scene for the series, a gothic dance to the Cramps’ “Goo Goo Muck,” debuted on November 23 on TikTok after Ortega revealed to an interviewer that she had choreographed the dance herself. Since December 1, thousands of users have recreated the boogie-woogie into a speedy version of Lady Gaga’s Bloody Mary — resulting in a 9,500 percent and 1,800 percent increase in song streams, respectively, according to diverse. Several publications have also paid for interviews and articles about Ortega and Wednesday cast, social media is flooded with quotes, photos, and revelations about Ortega’s acting process and inspiration. Not to be outdone, the fans decided it was their turn to have fun — using the ever-growing meme to promote their favorite artists, shows, and *check notes* programming language. Before the meme went mainstream, news of Ortega was rampant enough that even one tweet was fake convinced Academy Award winning actress Brie Larson.

The meme follows a similar vibe to an earlier (and much smaller) iteration that includes Squid game an actress Hoyeon Jung, which became famous in October 2021. The “facts” that people claim Ortega reveals in her journalistic career are tongue-in-cheek and fairly easy to fact-check. But the sheer size of the meme may suppress some interesting revelations about the filming of a movie Wednesday.

In an interview with NME, Ortega said she contracted COVID when she filmed the now-famous dance scene.

“I’m not a dancer, and I’m sure that’s obvious. I got the song about a week ago, and I pulled everything I could… It’s crazy because it was my first day with COVID, so it was awful to shoot,” she told NME. “Yeah, I woke up—it’s weird. I never get sick, and when I do, it’s not so bad. I had body aches. I felt like I had been hit by a car and a little goblin had been shot down my throat and was scratching the walls of my esophagus. They were giving me medicine.” In between taking times we were waiting for the positive result.”


According to NME, the connection to Wednesday Ortega was confirmed by MGM Productions to have COVID but removed from the set once the test result came back positive.

Some concerned readers called the production irresponsible for allowing Ortega to film while she was showing symptoms. But dancing around people with an infectious disease sounds a lot like something Wednesday Adams would do. Perhaps Ortega was committed to staying in character?
