"We get along with it, with therapy," says Finn Wolfhard when asked how they deal with fame.

“Working has been our therapy”, completes Millie Bobby Brown to the question of EL PAÍS during a virtual visit to the filming of the series in June 2021. “I would not change my life for a second.

I thank God every day for what I do,” continues Wolfhard.

“I agree, we are extremely lucky to have this opportunity.

I am focusing on being grateful for everything I have and the platform that has been given to me, ”Brown takes the floor again.

“Both I and the rest of the young actors in the series have our problems, we all have our things.

Finn and I, for example, have had to deal with our anxiety a lot, it's something that has always united us.

Of course we have our things,

but it's always nice to have the opportunity to talk to people who are going through the exact same thing as you.

Having each other, someone in whom we can trust and support you, has united us more, ”continues the interpreter of Once in fiction.

It's always good to have the opportunity to talk to people who are going through exactly the same thing as you.

Fame doesn't seem to have affected Gaten Matarazzo's day-to-day life much, Dustin in the series.

“Especially when I go back to my house in Jersey, it's like being in a bubble where not many people talk about it.

I just go to work and that's it.

But when I get out of there and I come to work in Atlanta and you go out in public and you get recognized, it's something I think we're starting to get used to now," the actor explains.

“It doesn't really affect your day-to-day life, beyond the fact that people you don't know at all know who you are and recognize you on the street.

It's actually quite cool, because you see how many people connect with the story and enjoy it, and many relate to you.

It is something that is difficult to get used to, I haven't done it yet, I don't know if I will one day.

But it's very interesting and a very, very cool experience."

Maya Hawke (23 years old), who plays Robin in fiction, has experienced fame closely in her family with her parents, actors Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman.

“The wonderful thing about being on

Stranger Things

is that we all get along great and we all love the show so much.

And being recognized for something you can stand behind is much better than the other way around, having the whole world know you for, I don't know, something very embarrassing that you did or that you're not proud of,” she muses.

Priah Ferguson, Erika in fiction, is now 15 years old, but when she first appeared in

Stranger Things

I was only 12. “I still go to school, and none of my friends talk about the series.

I think it's because they've known me for years and just know that this is something I do.

Now I'm going to start high school and I guess the series is more popular there than at school.

But I still lead a very normal life.

It is also that my hair is very different from what I have in the series, probably people do not recognize me.

Hawke joined the series in season three as a character who quickly became a fan favorite.

“I try to stay away from the reactions it provokes, because I am very sensitive and it affects me a lot when they are negative, so I try not to read the good or the bad, I just do my job without being influenced if people like it. or not.

But I do know that the response from viewers has been very positive.

I love playing an LGBT character like Robin, who is not defined by her sexual identity, her plot is not an LGBT story.

It's just an adventure story like the rest, homosexuality is just one more aspect of her personality, ”says the actress.

I love playing an LGBT character who is not defined by their sexual identity.

In the current season, Eduardo Franco and Joseph Quinn were brought in to play the Argyle pizza delivery boy and the leader of the Hellfire club from the Dungeons and Dragons game, Eddie Munson.

They, like Maya Hawke before them, jumped on a tremendously successful train.

“I don't even know how to explain the feeling of arriving here.

The road was like a trip that seemed very far away and that you dreamed of”, says Franco.

"It's like you've won the lottery, getting to a series of this caliber and with such a loyal fan base," Quinn completes.

Caleb McLaughlin, Finn Wolfhard, Millie Bobby Brown and Gaten Matarazzo, when they were still children in the first season of 'Stranger Things'.

All of them live with the series a trip to the eighties that they did not know.

For the youngest, a

walkman

or a gondola phone are gadgets from another century that they had not touched until they came to

Stranger Things

.

It is possible that they did not even set foot in a video store, one of the spaces in which the action takes place in the fourth installment.

But for Finn Wolfhard, the strangest thing about the eighties was the hairstyles.

"I can't believe they were like this.

And those weird music videos,” says the actor.

Millie Bobby Brown takes the floor to continue: “In the third season, Eleven's room was full of polaroid photos.

I loved it and now it's something I do too.

When we shot the first season I was 11 years old and I was always wondering what is this or what is that.

My father couldn't believe that he didn't know what a tape recorder was, so he bought me one, and of course, I loved it.

It's normal, I was born in 2004, I had no idea what those things were.
