She said, “I told them very early on that I didn’t want her to be in the middle of a love triangle.”

“I’ve always been against the love triangle idea,” she added. She continued by saying how difficult it was to resist the love triangle and how her character Wednesday would never consent to such an affair.

She further said, “As far as the boys went, I had to accept it but honestly, I’m going to fight this love triangle thing so hard. Because I don’t think Wednesday would ever be in a love triangle.”

Ortega admitted that she has already discussed this scene with the script writers.

She added, “I think there’s an opportunity there for a really sweet, platonic relationship because I don’t think it’s shown enough, men and women having safe, platonic relationships that don’t become romantic.”
