4.- Marilyn Thornhill (Christina Ricci)
The return of christina ricci to the universe of ‘The Addams Family’ was the most commented, because in this Netflix series the actress who played Merlina in the 90s will now return to play Marilyn Thornhillthe Evermore Academy prefect who definitely reminds us of the saying “Nothing is as it seems”.

8.- Morticia Addams (Catherine Zeta-Jones)
Merlina’s mom and Gomez’s wife. Morticia and Merlina’s relationship isn’t the best (wow, in the teen’s eyes), however, the family bond is so strong that it will just help Merlina Addams in her battle against dark forces.
