While he was on set, the Taoiseach met with the show's well known director Tim Burton, as well as several Irish creators working on the production.

"It was a pleasure to visit Netflix’s Wednesday set to see the award-winning team in action and meet acclaimed director and executive producer Tim Burton," Simon Harris said.

"I'm delighted to see Ireland continues to be chosen as a location to film series and movies which supports our economy, creates jobs, showcases our creative talents and promotes our country on a global stage,” he added.

It’s now been confirmed that Wednesday is the largest production to film in Ireland, just a few years after the large scale production of Disney’s Disenchanted (starring Amy Adams and Patrick Dempsey) took over Enniskerry.

We’ll have our own Hollywood sign up in the Wicklow Mountains before we know it!
