It’s a big week for Winona Ryder. On top of ruling the press circuit in support of her upcoming HBO miniseries, Show Me A Hero, the industry veteran/person we’re still aspiring to be, confirmed to Seth Meyers that a Beetlejuice sequel is in the works. (Pause for screams of joy and saying “Beetlejuice” three times.)
So yes, everything’s coming up Winona. But on top of HBO, the upcoming full-length Experimenter, and the recently-announced Netflix show, Montauk (in which Ryder will star), the actress will also be celebrating the 25th anniversary of Edward Scissorhands in December. Which ignited a discussion on why and how we crowned Winona Ryder as the official nineties posterchild. Better yet, why we still aspire to be her most famous characters, twenty-plus years after we first met them.
