Almost 60 years before the Netflix series "Wednesday", US actress Lisa Loring played the bad-tempered daughter of the creepy Addams Family - now, according to US media, she is dead. The former child star of the American television series "The Addams Family" (1964 -1966) suffered a fatal stroke, her daughter told Variety.
Loring was 64 years old. Her friend Laurie Jacobson wrote on Facebook: "She will always be Wednesday Addams in our hearts." The black and white series was also shown in West Germany from the 1970s.
In November 2022, the Netflix streaming service released a new series specifically about the character Wednesday. The eight-part series was the number one Netflix series for weeks and set streaming records. Leading actress Jenna Ortega (20) was at times one of the favorite topics of social media. A dance scene sparked a global Tiktok trend.
