Always Cast A Magician
We already mentioned how impressed we were with Victor Dorobantu’s uncanny ability to bring Thing, the creepy severed hand, to life in Wednesday. The Romanian magician has a natural talent for creating spooky yet realistic movements with this prosthetic hand. It turns out his predecessor, who played the mischievous hand in the 1991 film, was also a magician! Christopher Hart, the man who brought Thing to life in the ’90s movies, had a similar talent for giving this lifeless hand a life-like personality. When you learn this information, it proves another full-circle moment for Wednesday that feels more like destiny than a happy accident. Dorobantu and Hart have done amazing jobs bringing this creature to life, and we have to wonder if it’s because they’re both magicians and know something the rest of us don’t. We’re both impressed and a little spooked- which is exactly how it should be for a series like this!
