Her blue period By Cindy Pearlman Entertainment Weekly, Jan 21, 1994
HER BLUE PERIOD: We've rarely seen Addams Family Values Christina Ricci in anything but basic black, but all that will change with her role in Casper, the Friendly Ghost. "I'll get to play a normal girl," says the 13-year-old, "and wear pastels and actual colors. Black is still one of my favorites, but it's nice to wear mauve or blue once in a while." Another perk of costarring in the film? "I won't have to take my earth-science final [in class] because we start shooting later this month. That's my hardest class," says the high school freshman, who will get a take-home test instead.
