Wednesday Friday Addams is one of the primary protagonists in the comic series, tv series, and movie adaptions titled The Addams Family. She is one of the children of Gomez Addams and Morticia Addams, as well as the older sister of Pugsley Addams and later the older sister of Pubert Addams. Arguably the most widely-known depiction of Wednesday is in the 1990s films, in which she was played by Christina Ricci who also played Kat Harvey. In the 2019 animated film, she was voiced by Chloe Grace Moretz who also played Hit-Girl.


Wednesday is always shown as pale-skinned and having black hair in braided pigtails.


Wednesday's personality changes over the course of the series. She is originally shown to be fascinated with death and macabre. She is stated to be six years old in the first episode of 1960's television series. In the 1960's television series, she is more sweet-natured, however, she loves playing with spiders and in the episode "The Addams Family Tree" she gave another child a black eye for saying his family was better, with both families being shocked that a little girl did that to a boy bigger than him. In the episode "Wednesday Leaves Home" she decides to run off after her parents ground her from playing with her spider. She returns by the end of the episode.

In the film series she shown to be the only Addams who is genuinely mean-spiriited, as opposed to simply having a fascination with the macabre. However, she shares the same strong willpower and sense of family kinship as the other Addamses.

In the 90s cartoon show, she is back to being sweet-natured, but with an air of sophistication reminiscent of Gomez and Morticia.

Wednesday in the 2019 movie is kind and gentle to those who mean her no harm, but cruel to those who harass her and bully her. She is shown to be a brilliant scientist.




  • In the 2019 Addams Family film, Wednesday's braids uniquely resemble the nooses.
  • Also in the 2019 film, she is seen with white skin.
