Jenna Ortega has been having quite the climb to fame after appearing in projects like Netflix’s You, Wednesday and even the Scream franchise. Ortega had one of the biggest streaming series of the year in 2022 with Wednesday, and she’s looking to take on 2023 with the same energy. The Wednesday star recently appeared on Hot Ones, a YouTube series that features host Sean Evans interviewing celebrities over spicy wings, and she definitely handled it way better than other celebrities who have appeared. Ortega took on the spicy wings with little to no problem and you can definitely say that this was no sweat for the actress.
You can check out her Hot Ones appearance below.
The new Scream is set to see the return of the fifth movie’s newcomers Barrera (Sam), Brown (Mindy), Gooding (Chad), and Ortega (Tara) as well as Scream 4‘s Hayden Panettiere (Kirby) and first-timers Dermot Mulroney and Tony Revolori. The film will also feature longtime franchise star Courteney Cox as Gale Weathers. Sadly, Campbell won’t be returning to the Scream franchise for the first time since it began in 1996. It’s been reported that Campbell will not be returning as Sidney Prescott due to a pay disagreement. In August, Campbell spoke with PEOPLE and opened up about the discrepancy in pay equality.
“I did not feel that what I was being offered equated to the value that I bring to this franchise, and have brought to this franchise, for 25 years,” Campbell told the magazine. “And as a woman in this business, I think it’s really important for us to be valued and to fight to be valued.” She added, “I honestly don’t believe that if I were a man and had done five installments of a huge blockbuster franchise over 25 years, that the number that I was offered would be the number that would be offered to a man. And in my soul, I just couldn’t do that. I couldn’t walk on set feeling that — feeling undervalued and feeling the unfairness, or lack of fairness, around that.”
Does Scream VI Have a Time Jump?
Barrera recently spoke to the 20 Questions On Deadline podcast (via ScreenRant) and revealed when the sixth movie takes place.
“No, it’s not [a big time jump] at all. It’s almost directly after the last one. Basically, the amount of time that has passed between one movie and the other is the amount of time that has passed in Scream time,” Barrera explained. The new movie is also leaving Woodsboro and heading to New York, which Barrera recently called a “more mortifying” setting.
Scream VI hits theaters on March 10th!
