She recalled that at the age of six she saw it on TV Dakota Fanning act alongside Denzel Washington in Man on Fire – The fire of revenge e she decided she wanted to be an actress and become the Puerto Rican version of Dakota Fanning. She therefore repeatedly begged her parents to allow her to act, but they – as much as she insisted – remained absolutely against the idea. In the end her mother to please her gave her a book of monologues, hoping thus to silence her requests. One day the mother asked Jenna Ortega to recite one of the monologues from the text and was amazed by the girl’s convincing performance. The star of Wednesday he said:
“I gave her a dramatic monologue. Where I was crying hysterically and all. She didn’t understand. She didn’t know how, why I was doing it. Where did all that hysteria come from. Or what I was talking about. I said to her then ‘This piece is from the book of monologues you gave me. I did what you told me to do.”
The woman, amazed by her child’s natural talent, he therefore decided to film it and post the video on Facebook, accompanying it with a nice caption: “My little drama queen“. At that point luck began to smile on the young woman Jenna Ortega, because the video was seen by a friend of the mother who knew a casting director.
