Her Son Dylan Is Excited To See Her As Morticia In ‘Wednesday’
During the conversation with Extra, Dylan also spoke about his mom and his love for Burton’s work. He said, “I think the first [Burton film] my mom showed me was ‘Edward Scissorhands,’ and that’s a great film. I’ve seen so much of Tim Burton’s work and I love it, and for him to do his first tv show… ‘The Addams Family,’ for him to ‘Burton-fy’ it is just so exciting.”
Dylan also shared his excitement to have Zeta-Jones playing the role of Morticia and said that he’s “pumped to be here” and it’s all “pretty cool!” Zeta-Jones smiled brightly as her son spoke and said, “I am cool for two minutes.” She also spoke about her Morticia character, calling her an “iconic woman” and a “matriarch.”
Zeta-Jones said, “She’s such a pop culture image for me. I wanted to just exude her, not try and be somebody else’s interpretation. This particular version of this world is very rooted in modern-day reality, which makes it very cool and funny. Also, weirdly enough, very close to the original.”
