Ortega plays the lead character on Netflix's hit series about the Addams' oldest child as she gets sent to the Nevermore Academy for monsters and outcasts.

Her younger brother, Pugsley, is about 13 or 14 on the show. Actor Isaac Ordonez is 13 in real life.

On the series' pilot, Pugsley and Wednesday are shown attending the same public school.

Since Wednesday is a sophomore, Pugsley is likely either in eighth or ninth grade, depending on how many grades are included in the school.

Wednesday starts the show at 15. It's likely that Pugsley's 13 or 14, depending on his grade.

Wednesday's roommate, Enid Sinclair, is likely the same age as her, 16, while Emma Myers is 20 years old.

Enid is a young werewolf on the series.

Myers started acting at 16 and will next appear in Netflix's upcoming film "Family Leave," starring Jennifer Garner.

Eugene Ottinger is likely 14 or 15 at the start of the series. Moosa Mostafa is actually 14.

Eugene is one of Wednesday's few friends and has the power to control bees. Wednesday becomes rather protective of Eugene, who reminds her of her younger brother, Pugsley.

Because she tells him he reminds her of Pugsley, Eugene is likely younger than her, which would match with the actor's age in real life.

Tyler Galpin is in his late teens on "Wednesday." In reality, Hunter Doohan is 28.

Xavier Thorpe is supposed to be around 16. Percy Hynes White is 21.

Thorpe can bring his own works of art to life using his psychic abilities. He's also a skilled archer.

We know Xavier and Wednesday are around the same age because they both met when they were 10 at a funeral for Xavier's godmother.

Bianca Barclay is also supposed to be around 16 while Joy Sunday is 26 years old.

She can also breathe underwater and transform her legs into a mermaid tail. She's a skilled swordsman and leader of a social club called The Nightshade Society.

Like the majority of the students, Ajax Petropolus is supposed to be around 16. Georgie Farmer is 20.
