In case you couldn't already tell, we're all kinds of obsessed with Wednesday, The Addams Family spin-off on Netflix. From Jenna Ortega's creepy way of getting into character to the surprising ending, fans are now looking into exactly how Thing was filmed.
The Netflix original is a based on the iconic gothic family, focussing on daughter Wednesday, with the official synopsis explaining, "Smart, sarcastic and a little dead inside, Wednesday Addams investigates a murder spree while making new friends — and foes — at Nevermore Academy."
Wednesday (played by Jenna Ortega) is joined by Thing on her quest, a creepy crawly hand sent by father Gomez (Luis Guzmán) and mother Morticia (Catherine Zeta-Jones) to keep an eye on what she's up to. A helping hand, if you will.
So, how exactly does Thing, which is basically a solo hand skittering around Nevermore College, work? Netflix revealed all in a new tweet, introducing fans to the actor whose hand takes centre stage.
"Give a big hand to Victor Dorobantu, the incredible actor who plays Thing on Wednesday," they wrote, while also giving a look at some behind the scenes photos of Victor in action.
In the pics, he's wearing a long sleeve blue suit, with Thing built around his actual hand. One photograph shows him lying on a moving machine, with his hand exposed to give the illusion of Thing walking around, while in another he's crouching beneath Jenna Ortega as Wednesday with his hand on her shoulder. So clever!
Fans have been full of praise for Thing's performance. "Really enjoyed #wednesdaynetflix and 'Thing' stole the show. More seasons please #Netflix" one viewer replied, while another put, "Absolutely brilliant! Loving it! Great cast and writing."
