Wednesday, the words of Jenna Ortega

Here are some of the most salient statements from Jenna Ortega regarding the tv series Wednesday, Tim Burton and more:

About his approach to working with Tim Burton and his character

“It was a pretty crazy experience. I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to work with an iconic director who was simply one of the sweetest directors I have worked with. And also the most attentive to details. Stepping into the shoes of someone who is quite quirky and scary was really exciting for me, and definitely a challenge, especially with such a beloved character. I really want to take care of her and do her justice. "

On finding the right balance in bringing on a bigger Wednesday Addams

“The fact is, there are several paths anyone could have taken for this character. We never saw Wednesday Addams as a teenager, so some of her sour ways might be hilarious when she's younger, but as you grow up, how much of that can you get away with? Or how do you keep him at the forefront of her personality without people disliking her or finding her annoying about her? So I'm trying to balance all of this… I've never felt so much pressure on a job and I'm trying to stay calm ”.

On Wednesday and the physical transformation required of the actress

"I think my role on Wednesday is probably the most physical transformation I've ever done; I cut my hair, and it's black, and from the point of view of affectation, speaking of cadence and expression, this time I'm trying to come up with different tools. I think it will be a surprise for the audience, but also for myself. "

Here's what Gov. Pritzker will propose in his budget address Wednesday

Gov. JB Pritzker will announce several tax cuts on Wednesday as part of his annual budget address, according to Deputy Gov. Andy Manar.

The governor's office estimates the cuts will save Illinois families $1 billion.

'On Wednesday, when the governor introduces the fiscal year 23 budget, he will be introducing the Illinois family relief plan,' said Manar, a Democrat who became deputy governor last year after serving three terms in the Illinois Senate representing the 48th district.

The plan has three main parts -- eliminate the 1% sales tax on groceries, freeze gasoline taxes, and offer a rebate on property taxes for homeowners.

The 1% sales tax generates $360 million in revenue for the state, which is then distributed to local governments. The plan is for the state to send local governments money to make up for their lost revenue due to the tax cut. The funds would come out of the state's general fund.

The second element is to freeze taxes on gasoline at the current rate. As it stands, the state takes $0.392 for every gallon of gasoline sold.

The state is scheduled to increase the gas tax proportionately to inflation, a jump of about $0.02, in July. Manar estimates that the increase would cost Illinois residents $135 million.

According to Manar, the governor's plan includes a one-time rebate on property taxes for homeowners. When homeowners file their state income tax, they would be able to deduct a value equal to 5% of their property tax up to $300. They would then be issued an additional direct payment equal to the value of their deduction.

Manar said there is no similar program or plan for renters.

He would not comment on Pritzker's spending proposal.

'This will be part of a balanced budget proposal that he will submit to the General Assembly on Wednesday,' said Manar.

This story will be updated.
