Additionally, SAG-AFTRA advises its members not to post photos of costumes inspired by startling content on social media.
“Let’s use our collective power to send a loud and clear message to our impacted employers that we will not promote their content without a fair contract,” they shared.

The union has now clarified its comments with an update after various figures in Hollywood raised concerns about SAG-AFTRA’s decision to focus on Halloween costume guidelines rather than return to the negotiating table with the studios.
Below is updated information about this new “bath”:
“SAG-AFTRA released the Halloween Guide in response to questions from content creators and members about how to support the strike during this holiday season. This was done to help them avoid strike propaganda and is the latest in a series of guides we have produced. This does not concern anyone’s children. We are on strike for important reasons and have been for almost 100 days. “Our number one priority remains getting the studios back to the table so we can get a fair deal for our members and finally get our industry back to work,” the statement said.
Now, while Ortega has a lot of eyes on her and many wondering if she, like every Hollywood actor, was planning to “scab,” new information has come out that has many fans feeling cheated, but in a good way.
Jenna’s age, as well as the ages of other actors from Wednesday, was publicly available information; However, many fans of the show are just now noticing that the actors are not all teenagers as they appear in the series. Wednesday is a 16-year-old girl, but Ortega is actually 21. Many noted that they mistook her for a teenager because her appearance is very “deceptive.”
That’s not the only age shock: villain Hunter Doohan, who plays Tyler Galpin, is 29 years old and also plays a 16-year-old! In fact, all the teenage characters are in their 20s, including Percy Hines White as Xavier Thorpe, Emma Meyers as Enid Sinclair and Joy Sunday as Bianca Barclay.
The only Nevermore student who doesn’t is Musa Mostafa, who plays Eugene Ottinger. The actor is 15, but his character is only 14 years old!
