Movie Fact #54 - October 10th, 2020


One of the major plot points of 1991's The Addams Family was the character of Fester (Played by Christopher Lloyd) and whether he was really Fester or not. In a 2012 interview, director Barry Sonnenfeld stated that he originally intended that it be unclear whether Fester really was an imposter or not. However, all the other actors rebelled and chose 10-year-old Christina Ricci to speak on their behalf. According the Sonnenfeld, Ricci "gave this really impassioned plea that Fester shouldn't be an imposter... so we ended up totally changing that plot point to make the actors happy. And they were right — it was the better way to go." In short, Lloyd's performance was so good, he won over the entire family of actors. Stay tuned!
