Following the release of Wednesday on Netflix, Tim Burton's series just revealed how they brought the disembodied hand, Thing, crawl on screen in a bunch of behind-the-scenes photos showing Victor Dorobantu pulling off moving around the set.

One of the most famous member of the Addams Family is none other than the disembodied hand, Thing T. Thing, or who they plainly call as Thing. He is stitched-up and he crawls around through his fingers moving from one place to another and on Wednesday, he, once again, becomes a star!

In a series of behind-the-scenes photos from Netflix, the streaming platform reveals how they got Thing to look so seamless in the show when it takes a whole team to pull off having a disembodied hand with Jenna Ortega's Wednesday.

Victor Dorobantu is the actor who should be given a big round of applause as he gives life to Thing, the disembodied hand. The actor had to be in uncomfortable crouching positions to accurately portray Thing and he even had to ride a pulley with the cameraman to capture a scene.
