When Jenna's co-star Emma was asked about her take on the rumoured relationship she gave a tongue-in-cheek response: "I always say and they were roommates."
The interviewer asked her if it was a case of "opposites attract", Emma, also 20, replied: "Exactly. You know what I mean, and they were roommates. That's what I always say."
Jenna – who has also made waves in other Netflix shows such as You and Jane The Virgin – spoke to MTV News following the mega-success of the Addams Family spin-off about her character, revealing that she may stray away from dating boys in future.
"Now that Tyler's off the table, I feel like she's off of boys for a while," the acting sensation revealed.
"I feel like her and Xavier are just getting to a safe place. I think there's an opportunity there for a really sweet platonic relationship."
Some fans have even started calling Wednesday a queer icon, in response Ortega told Pride: "I think because she’s a bada**.
"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," Jenna explained, "I feel like that’s a really, really powerful thing to see. I feel like people want to see powerful women with powerful women."
