The 'Stranger Things' Kids Play a Ghoulish Charade Game – Who Acts Best?

The gang talks bonds.

The Stranger Things kids charmed the world on their hit-show – tweens Millie Bobby Brown, Caleb McLaughlin, Gaten Matarazzo, Noah Schnapp and Finn Wolfhard, went viral overnight.

They’ve slayed “Uptown Funk” at the Emmys and earned Nicolas Ghesquière’s co-sign. Now watch the youngsters play a charade round about their worst nightmares realized – just in time because Halloween is around the corner.

The cast also sat down with Teen Vogue to talk about their dynamic together on-screen and enduring bonds in real life while navigating the “Hollywood” spotlight. Catch an except below and read the interview here.

In the beginning of the story, Eleven is very much an outsider but the boys pull her into their friendship group. How did you figure out that dynamic and build off that?

Millie Bobby Brown: We created a group chat, earlier on when we all got the job, so I kind of thought I knew them already. We also had school before we actually filmed this, [so] we knew who the prankster was, we knew who the sensible one was… It just really showed on camera.

MBB: It’s really nice to talk to each other when we need each other on this group chat.

NS: I don’t think the group chat is what made us friends, I think we just became friends, and then we created a group chat together. It really did help. When they were trying to cast us, they looked for people who had the best chemistry together. It really makes sense because if we didn’t like each other, the show wouldn’t be what it would be.

When they were doing all the callbacks, the first person I met was Caleb, in LA, and we always hung out, had breakfast together. I was really hoping to do it with him, and I was happy that he got the role for Lucas, so we could work together. Then, I met everyone else later in the show, and we just all became friends, literally on the first day. We went to school, we all sat together, and we just started laughing. Then, later we started hanging out, having sleepovers. Me and Millie would make these diary things on our phones, called Stranger Things Video Diaries, and we became really close.

Do you lean on each other to navigate all of these experiences?

FW: We all trust each other very much. We’re all part of a big family now; it’s like we’re brothers so we have to trust each other or else it’s not going —

MBB: And sister!

FW: Yeah, sorry, and sister!

MBB: It’s kind of like, forget about me.

GM: Don’t forget about Millie!

FW: We also have the Duffers, and Natalia [Dwyer, who plays Nancy Wheeler, Mike’s sister], and we have Joe [Keery, who plays Steve Harrington, Nancy’s boyfriend]. I just miss the whole crew. We [are basically all] brothers and sisters now, it’s one of those things where we have to trust each other on set.

MBB: [The Duffer Brothers] wrote [Stranger Things] four years ago, in 2012, and they must have really imagined what these characters and what they wanted. And to see us actually have a really good friendship, it must be nice for them to see.

FW: They told me that it’s surreal for them to be writing a show that’s so well-received. Tribute to them too.
