"There are not as many Hispanic leading ladies out there as I would like, but I want to help change that in the future. I am blessed with the opportunities I have been given and I am extremely proud of where I come from. I would not have it any other way."

Jenna Ortega (born September 27, 2002 in Coachella Valley, California) is an American actress and voice actress of Mexican and Puerto Rican descent.

Ortega began her career as a child actress, gaining early recognition for her recurring role as young Jane in Jane the Virgin. Her lead role as main character Harley Diaz on Stuck in the Middle led to a major rise in prominence, and she went on to receive acclaim for roles in works of various genres, from the teen drama The Fallout to the thriller series You.

Her starring role as the latest incarnation of Wednesday Addams in the Addams Family series Wednesday did invaluable work in elevating her status to one of the most popular young actors of The New '20s. Alongside the show, her roles in X, Scream (2022) and Scream VI have also solidified her as one of the up-and-coming Scream Queens of the decade to many (although she's reluctant to accept the label).
