In addition to her role in Mermaids, Ricci has been featured in a number of other memorable characters, including Wednesdays Addams in The Addams Family and Addams Family Values. However, when it comes to the upcoming Netflix reboot of The Addams Family, which is coming courtesy of Tim Burton, a number of fans have called for Ricci to be cast as Morticia Addams due to a photo that surfaced of her dressed as the character.

So far, however, no decisions have been made.

Not only has Ricci dressed up with a pumpkin on her head, she's actually gotten downright dirty as a cast member of several horror films, both as an adult, and as a child.

According to All Horror, Ricci was seen in Sleepy Hollow in 1999, Bless the Child in 2000, The Gathering in 2003, Cursed in 2005, and After.Life in 2009. While not quite considered a "horror" film, she also appeared in the Halloween-worthy movie, Casper, as Kathleen "Kat" Harvey in 1995.

Since then, the horror regular has stepped back from films that cause fright and focused on more approachable projects, such as 2017's Teen Titans: The Judas Contract and 2013's The Smurfs 2.

Christina Ricci Keeps Her Private Life to Herself

In 2019, after welcoming her first child, a son, Ricci spoke to Indie Wire about her decision to keep him out of the spotlight.

"I had a very hard time with fame as a child, being interviewed and being asked about my life. I think that the way that I answered questions and the things I said earlier on were just, it was like somebody twisting in the wind. I was very reactive and aggressive and I acted out," she said at the time. "No child should be held up for adults to criticize, question, interview, weigh in on. It's the reason we don't have pictures of our children up online. It's the same thing."
