One of the most legendary characters of the entire series required someone with the skills to follow her predecessors, which includes Anjelica Huston and Carolyn Jones. Thankfully, actor Gwen Jones fit the bill perfectly. "Wish I had more pictures but this was the BEST thing ever," she wrote on Instagram with photos in her glamorous "Wednesday" makeup. "Would do it again x1000." Although this appears to be Jones's first credited acting role, fans loved her performance, and in full costume, she looked exactly like her adult counterpart, Catherine Zeta-Jones.
