We were joined on the Popternative show by Isaac Ordonez who can be seen playing Pugsley Addams in the new Addams Family spinoff series Wednesday which is streaming now on Netflix.
Directed and executive produced by Tim Burton, Wednesday stars Jenna Ortega as Wednesday Addams, Gwendoline Christie as Principal Larissa Weems, Percy Hynes White as Xavier Thorpe, Jamie McShane as Sheriff Galpin, Hunter Doohan as Tyler Galpin, Emma Myers as Enid Sinclair, Joy Sunday as Bianca Barclay, Naomi J Ogawa as Yoko Tanaka, Moosa Mostafa as Eugene Ottinger, Georgie Farmer as Ajax Petropolus, Riki Lindhome as Dr. Kinbott, with Christina Ricci as Marilyn Thornhill, Catherine Zeta-Jones as Morticia Addams, Luis Guzmán as Gomez Addams, and Isaac Ordonez as Pugsley Addams.
The supernaturally infused mystery follows Wednesday Addams’ years as a student at Nevermore Academy. Wednesday attempts to master her psychic ability, thwart a monstrous killing spree that has terrorized the local town, and solve the supernatural mystery that embroiled her parents 25 years ago all while navigating her new and very tangled relationships at Nevermore.
In our interview, Isaac tells us about the audition process for the role of Pugsley and what it was like working with Jenna Ortega: “she’s amazing to work with, she has a more mellow personality; I’m a more calm person too, so it just clicked.” He also discusses being part of a universe (the Addams Family) that many people are familiar with, yet also opening it up to a new generation of people.
Watch the full interview with Isaac below.
Wednesday is streaming on Netflix.
