I have never been to Romania before. It was an area of ​​the world that I was always intrigued by and when Tim [Burton] he told me about the quality of the craft, the craftsmen, the artists, the painters, the sculptors there and all the people working on the set…it certainly did not disappoint. The work was truly exceptional“, said the actress Gwendoline Christie, for the cited source.

The British actress who played the role of Larissa Weems, the director of the Nevermore Academy where Wednesday studies and a former rival of Morticia Addam talked about what impressed her the most in Romania.

Nothing prepared me for the fabulous beauty of the Carpathian Mountains. They had an almost hallucinatory effect when we drove there to shoot at one of the magnificent castles and it was autumn and the leaves were changing color and it was just the most beautiful experience (…) I think what’s wonderful for our viewers is that they will see landscapes that they may not have seen before. And not only will they appreciate the beauty of Romania, but they will also have a completely new experience regarding the world of the Addams family“.

I think I was shocked at how nice and welcoming our entire team was,” said Canadian actor Percy Hynes White (Edge of Winter, A Christmas Horror Story), who plays Xavier Thorpe, one of Wednesday’s classmates at Nevermore Academy.

And Jenna Ortega, who plays Wednesday Addams, around whom the series revolves, says that she felt very good in Romania.

I met some of my favorite people on this planet there. I think the people there are amazing and it’s really beautiful and the place where our school is (No. Nevermore Academy) is cool because we filmed in real castles and one of the places we went to was Sinaia and everything looked Photoshopped. I couldn’t even believe it and it fit very very well with the aesthetic of the show so it was very fitting“.
