“I’m sure Netflix would love that,” Ortega told Variety ahead of the ceremony, after a reporter asked what role might be ideal for Gaga in season 2. “I think Mrs. Thornhill and Wednesday had this weird mentor relationship or kind of understood each other in a certain way, so, if Lady Gaga were to be a part, I think it would have to be two monsters that understand each other.”

Ortega — who further confirmed that Netflix was getting “a writers room together” for season 2 — also said that, before she and Gaga both went viral on TikTok because of Wednesday, they shared a mutual, professional connection in the industry.

“You know what’s funny [with] Lady Gaga? A long time ago, I worked with a hairdresser that used to work with her, and I’d just seen Lady Gaga in concert in Boston a couple of years before, and she’d made me a video saying, ‘Hey Jenna, I heard you’re a fan,'” Ortega continued. “It was a really sweet video. I doubt she had any idea who I was back then, but to see her do[the[theWednesday dance on TikTok]now, it’s one of those moments you acknowledge life changes really fast. It’s crazy.”
