Jenna recently stated during an interview with Entertainment Tonight that she was devastated to have missed the shot to reprise her role as Ellie and that You was one of her favourite sets she’s ever had the pleasure of working on.

She said: “Easily one of my favorite sets that I’ve ever, ever been on. I was so devastated. I miss Ellie, and I’ve been wanting to go back to Ellie for a long time, but I was in Romania shooting Wednesday. I couldn’t travel back and forth with the pandemic and everything like that, and when you’re committed to a show there’s just no way that it could’ve worked out. But that one, that bummed me out. I tried”.
