Who “saved” Wandinha’s lines full of contempt were the creators of the production, Miles Millar and Alfred Gough. In an interview with IndieWire, the producers revealed that Netflix asked them to consider cutting some of the goth girl’s lines, however, they put their foot down and didn’t budge.

“This is the main point of the character. Losing or diluting this is a betrayal of the character”, said Millar when explaining that Wandinha’s macabre essence is part of who she is. That is, it would make no sense to take it away from her.

This “strange” personality has even accompanied the character since her conception, and is also seen in all the series and films in which she appears. Just remember, for example, the films released in the 1990s, in which Christina Ricci played an equally frightening Wandinha.

So far, the performance of Jenna Ortega, who plays the young woman in the series Wandinhahas earned several accolades from critics and fans and is considered one of the main elements for the success of the work.
