A Great ‘Thing’ Revealed in ‘Wednesday’ Behind-the-Scenes Photos

Images show the disembodied hand actor Victor Dorobantu doing his ‘thang’ on set, though his role required a surprising full-body contorting performance.

Netflix has revealed how everyone’s favorite disembodied hand was brought to life in Tim Burton’s hit series, Wednesday. The streaming giant recently took to Twitter with some behind-the-scenes photos of Thing actor Victor Dorobantu doing his ‘thang’ on set. While Dorobantu acts with just his hand, it seems the role required a full-body contorting performance, a blue VFX suit, and a wrist prosthetic.

Jenna Ortega (Scream, The Fallout) stars in the titular role, alongside Catherine Zeta-Jones and Luis Guzman as her well-meaning and dark-leaning parents Morticia and Gomez Adams.

The sleuthing, supernaturally infused mystery series charts Wednesday Addams’ years as a student at Nevermore Academy. Wednesday attempts to master her emerging psychic ability, thwart a monstrous killing spree that has terrorized the local town and solve the supernatural mystery that embroiled her parents 25 years ago — all while navigating her new and very tangled relationships at Nevermore.

Joining director Burton are executive producers Al Gough and Miles Millar (SmallvilleInto the Badlands), Steve Stark (Medium, The Event), Andrew Mittman for 1.21 (The Addams Family, Alphas), Kevin Miserocchi (Tee and Charles Addams Foundation), Kayla Alpert (Code Black, Up All Night), Jonathan Glickman for Glickmania (RESPECT, Addams Family 2), and Gail Berman (The Addams Family, Alphas) under the MGM Television banner.

Stream Wednesday now on Netflix.
