Jenna Ortega, star of the Disney series “Stuck in the Middle” between 2016 and 2018, is emerging as one of the new faces of contemporary horror cinema.
Her participation in ” Scream ” (2022) as Tara Carpenter gave her several laudatory comments and the award at last night’s MTV Movie & TV Awards confirmed her as one of the public’s favorite actresses.
Jenna Ortega received the Golden Popcorn award in the “Most Frightened Performance” category precisely for her character in the fifth film of this saga begun by Wes Craven in 1996 and which has kept the surviving characters from their original cast.
But it is not the only film in which the 20 – year – the old actress has shown her talent for horror movies. In the movie “X”, recently released on the billboards in Mexico, she plays Lorraine, a sound engineer who helps her boyfriend in the filming of a porn movie in which she soon wants to participate as an actress and for which all those involved are attacked in the purest style of slasher cinema.
In addition, Jenna stars in “American Carnage,” another horror movie scheduled for release in July. In addition, she participated in “Studio 666”, the Foo Fighters movie, and is the protagonist of “Wednesday”, Tim Burton’s series for Netflix based on the character of Wednesday (or Merlina) from “The Addams Family”, which probably debut in the fall.
And from the looks of it, Jenna Ortega will reprise the role of Tara in “Scream 6.”
