    In fact, Emma has previously said that she and Jenna would quote "and they were roommates" during filming. “Jenna and I would say that all the time to each other. And that’s all that needs to be said — I think that gets the message across," she told Elite Daily.

    When Jenna was previously asked why she thinks Wednesday is seen as a queer icon, she replied, "I think because she’s a badass. She’s cool, she’s got a nice sense of style, but she’s somebody who embraces her differences and isn’t out to please anybody. I feel like that’s a really, really powerful thing to see. I feel like people want to see powerful women with powerful women."
