Only a few days have passed since the world premiere of the Merlina series, a new project by the eldest daughter of the Addams family, who have conquered several generations and although the film adaptation of a few years ago has become a kind of canon for these characters, Netflix opted for a series focused only on Wednesday.
The Nevermore Academy is the setting for the daughter of Morticia and Homer to learn different socialization techniques and also to face typical adolescent problems of boys who are a little different from the rest.
The production directed by Tim Burton has its stamp and special style and although it is conquering many for the performance of its cast, few know that to become these characters they have other projects in their history, some even appear to look as young as the students from high school, even though they may be almost 30 years old.
Jenna Ortega as Merlina Addams
The main character is 16 years old in the story, however, the actress is 20 years old. Her height and her features make her look younger and the truth is that she did a great job playing Merlina.
Emma Myers como Enid Sinclair
Addams’ roommate and best friend is a developmentally disabled werewolf, and while she looks extremely youthful, the actress is also in her 20s. Of course, she lives her fame in the best way and shares small extracts from behind the scenes of the filming whenever she can.
Hunter Doohan como Tyler Galpin
One of the most surprising cases in the series is that of the mysterious waiter of the town and although he does not study at school, it is thought that he may be between 17 or 19 years old. However, Doohan is a few years older, since he is 28 almost 30.
Percy Hynes White como Xavier Thorpe
The Nevermore hunk still has the same youthful look that Merlina’s suitor needs, and though he’s been in several projects before, the actor is only 21 years old.
Joy Sunday como Bianca Barclay
Another of the surprises among the cast is the interesting mermaid and queen of Nevermore, the actress of striking beauty is 27 years old, being 10 years older than she has to appear with her character.
Moosa Mostaga as Eugene Otinger
The little leader and lover of bees wanted to be friends with Merlina almost from the beginning. In the series he is a first year student and his age is the same, since the British actor is 13 years old.
Georgie Farmer as Ajax Petropolus
Last May, the actor who plays Enid’s love interest just turned 20, so the gap between him and his character isn’t that long.
Christina Ricci como Marilyn Thornhill
One of the actresses who played Merlina when she was just a child, her personality captivated more than one and she definitely left a very large space that Jenna Ortega was willing to fill. Ricci is 42 years old and although she starred in Los locos Addams in 1991, in the new Netflix series her age is not defined as a school teacher.
