Goth girl icon and forever Wednesday Addams Christina Ricci is joining the cast of The Matrix 4. Ricci’s role is being kept tightly under wraps for now, as she joins Keanu Reeves, Carrie-Anne Moss, Jada Pinkett Smith, Jessica Henwick, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Jonathan Groff and Neil Patrick Harris in the long awaited fourth chapter of the Matrix franchise.

This role isn’t Ricci’s first time working with the Wachowskis. She previously starred in 2008’s Speed Racer, which was a critical and commercial flop. But in the years since, the film has developed a cult following for its colorful design and inventive visual effects.

Ricci, who started her career as a child actor, appeared in beloved 90s kids films The Addams Family, Now and Then, and Casper. She went on to a successful film career starring in films such as The Opposite of Sex, Monster, and Sleepy Hollow, to name a few. She recently appeared in Lifetime’s Lizzie Borden Took an Ax, and continued the role in the miniseries The Lizzie Borden Chronicles.

The Matrix 4 is set to premiere on December 22 in theaters and on HBO Max.

Chelsea was born and raised in New Orleans, which explains her affinity for cheesy grits and Britney Spears. An pop culture journalist since 2012, her work has appeared on Autostraddle, AfterEllen, and more. Her beats include queer popular culture, film, television, republican clownery, and the unwavering belief that 'The Long Kiss Goodnight' is the greatest movie ever made. She currently resides in sunny Los Angeles, with her husband, 2 sons, and one poorly behaved rescue dog. She is a former roller derby girl and a black belt in Judo, so she is not to be trifled with. She loves the word “Jewess” and wishes more people used it to describe her.
