Jenna explained that she was against a love triangle forming between her character with Tyler (Hunter Doohan) and Xavier (Percy Hynes White).

“I told them very early on that I didn’t want her to be in the middle of a love triangle,” she shared with ETalk. “I’ve always been against the love triangle idea.”

She adds, “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.”

Jenna then explained that she addressed it with scriptwriters early on: “I talked to the writers about this and they said ‘don’t worry, don’t worry, it’s not gonna be that.’ 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.”

“Almost sibling-like relationships, I think that would be really wonderful to see between her and Xavier. Honestly, I think boys are probably the last thing on Wednesday’s mind,” she shared.

Just recently, Jenna got some backlash about the filming of the series’ iconic dance scene.
