Burton explains Wednesday Addams’ charm

Talk to EmpireTim Burton would share his story about how his curiosity in creating the Wednesday Netflix series grew after he read the original script.

“When I read this [script], it just spoke to me about how I felt in school and how you feel about your parents, how you feel as a person. It gave the Addams Family a different kind of reality. It was an interesting combination.” – Tim Burton, via Empire.

The veteran filmmaker would then explain how his interest in the Wednesday Addams character comes from years’ worth of experiences, many of which could have been inspired by similar storylines.

“In 1976, I went to a high-school prom. It was the year [that] Carrie came out. I felt like a male Carrie at that prom. I felt that feeling of having to be there but not be part of it. They don’t leave you, those feelings, as much as you want them to go.” – Tim Burton, via Empire.

Burton then would add, “You know, Wednesday and I have the same worldview.”

Burton rejects creators, according to them

Name ‘Tim Burton’ Being attached to any project attracts a lot attention. This TV series focuses on the iconic Burton-esque character in Wednesday Addams.

Interesting fact: Al Gough and Miles Millar, co-creators the Netflix series, spoke out The Hollywood Reporter How they didn’t initially believe Burton would join them for the project.

“Tim was always our first choice to do it, but people were like, ‘He’s never done television.’ But we said, ‘If we don’t ask, the answer’s no.’ So, we sent the script to his agent. His agent really liked it, and sent it to Tim, and then shockingly, four days later, he answered and said he would love to get on the phone and talk to us about it. We did and he basically committed right then.” – Al Gough, via The Hollywood Reporter.

Gwendoline Christine, an actress, shared how she struggled with Burton’s enthusiasm.

“I got a text saying, ‘Hi Gwen, Tim Burton would like to speak to you,’ and I thought I was going to spontaneously combust because I’ve wanted to work with Tim Burton my entire life. I just think that Tim is one of our great artists, and I mean this in the sense that he is a visionary. And he is unadulteratedly himself, and I think that our industry and our world needs to celebrate more artists who are entirely themselves and exist only to express themselves.” – Gwendoline Christie, via The Hollywood Reporter.
