Stranger Things' Shannon Purser Did Not Expect Her Emmy Nomination At All

Stranger Things' Shannon Purser Did Not Expect Her Emmy Nomination At All

Did anyone else jump out of their chair and do a major happy dance once you saw that Shannon Purser, aka Barb from Stranger Things, was nominated for an Emmy?!

We know it wasn’t just us!

Shannon spoke to ET following the nominations announcement, still in shock over it all.

“I don’t see how it could get much better than this, for sure,” she admitted. “It’s been really sweet to see how many people are excited and you know, encouraging me. So yeah, it’s incredible.”


As for how she found out about the nomination, Shannon was actually on a plane!

“I turned on my phone and all these text messages and posts and tweets started flooding my inbox… I found out on a plane, and I was trying to keep my cool, because I’m stuck in this tiny space with like, a couple hundred other people. It’s crazy!”

“My brain just kind of shut down. There are no words,” she added. “I just didn’t expect it in a million years.”

Now, there is Justice For Barb, even showrunner Matt Duffer agrees.

“It’s proof she won’t be forgotten,” he told EW. “Shannon took this… it’s barely a three-episode role and somehow turned it into what became this iconic character so I don’t know how she did it.”

Riverdale's Shannon Purser Reveals She's Bisexual

Riverdale's Shannon Purser Reveals She's Bisexual

Shannon Purser opened up about her sexuality last week on Twitter and now she is coming out to fans as bisexual.

The 19-year-old Riverdale actress wrote a powerful message to her fans in which she talked about coming out to her friends and family, and also apologized to fans who might have been offended by a recent tweet she wrote.

“I don’t normally do this, but I figure now is as good a time as any to get personal,” Shannon wrote in the note. “I’ve only just recently come out as bisexual to my family and friends. It’s something I am still processing and trying to understand and I don’t like talking about it too much. I’m very very new to the LGBT community.”

Shannon, who played Barb on Stranger Things, responded to fans who accused her of “queerbaiting” after she wrote a tweet about Riverdale viewers who “ship” the relationship between Betty and Veronica.

In the episode, after Ethel (Shannon Purser) reads a dark poem in class, Veronica (Camila Mendes) gets to the bottom of what inspired her words and she finds out that Ethel’s home life isn’t so great at the moment.

So what does a friend like Veronica do? She spends some time with Ethel, which is cute, even if you’re asking why.
