“Wednesday”‘s Gwendoline Christie and Christina Ricci Have the Cutest Reunion at Fashion Week
It’s a cast reunion that makes us want to dance with our hands in the air! Gwendoline Christie and Christina Ricci, who both starred in season one of Netflix’s “Wednesday,” reunited on Feb. 22 at Fendi’s Fall 2023 Ready to Wear Fashion Show in Milan, Italy. The duo posed for photos together inside the showroom.
“I love you @riccigrams,” Christie wrote on her Instagram Story alongside a video of her and Ricci hugging during the event. Ricci posted the same video and wrote “I [heart] @gwendolineuniverse so very much.” Ricci also posted on her feed that she attended the show with her husband Mark Hampton. Christie commented on her costar’s post with a chain of black heart and fire emojis.
In “Wednesday” season one, which premiered in November 2022, Christie played the headmistress at Nevermore Academy, Larissa Weems. Weems was also the roommate of Morticia Addams (Catherine Zeta Jones) during their school days. Ricci – who played Wednesday Addams, herself, in the 1990s Addams Family movies – portrays the school’s botany teacher, Marilyn Thornhill, who’s hiding some major secrets.
Both actors squeezed their fashion week appearance into busy schedules. On Feb. 19, Christie presented at the 2023 BAFTA Awards, and she wore a dramatic, floor-length black dress that made the most of her height. It was designed by her partner, fashion designer Giles Deacon. Christie is also joining the cast of Apple TV+’s breakaway hit series “Severance” in an unknown role. The show is currently filming its second season.
Meanwhile, Ricci just finished filming season two of “Yellowjackets,” which premieres March 24 on Showtime.
For now, Christie and Ricci will probably have to settle for real-life reunions, as opposed to on-screen ones, because – spoiler – Larissa died during “Wednesday” season one. We can only dream of Christie joining Ricci and co. on “Yellowjackets” in season three in a fun cameo.
