Dacre Montgomery Shares Story Of How He Booked 'Stranger Things' Role

Dacre Montgomery Shares Story Of How He Booked 'Stranger Things' Role

Dacre Montgomery‘s role as Billy on Stranger Things has been kept hush-hush for quite a while.

While we’re definitely interested in just who Billy is, besides his little sister’s tormentor (aren’t all big brothers though?), we love hearing his audition story even more.

Speaking with Refinery29, Dacre revealed that his audition tape was definitely something to look at.

“I made a little short film, with an opening score and title credits and I read both of the scenes I was given…I danced in a g-string to ‘Hungry Like The Wolf’ [by Duran Duran].”

That was apparently the only thing showrunners/creators the Duffer Brothers needed, because he got the part just like that.

Dacre continues, “It was kind of crazy. I got a call, and I was supposed to do a test the next week. I Skyped the Duffer Brothers on Sunday and got a call on Monday that I got the part. So I was in Australia, and three weeks later I moved to America.”

“That audition could have gone one of two ways,” he says. “I could have never worked in this industry again, but someone, somewhere, saw something.”

Stranger Things season two premieres on Friday, October 27th on Netflix.

Co-creator Ross Duffer promises that Stranger Things season two will be “much crazier than it ever got in season 1,” and this final new trailer definitely delivers.

The spooky three-minute video shows that season two will be more intense than ever for the now-beloved ill-fated characters. Eleven runs through the woods in the dead of winter. Halloween night becomes more than fun and games. Will’s mom cries out, “What is happening to my boy?”

Stranger Things season two is coming to Netflix just in time for Halloween on October 27th.

Millie Bobby Brown Spills on Stranger Things Season Two!

Millie Bobby Brown Spills on Stranger Things Season Two!

Millie Bobby Brown shows off Eleven’s new hair on the cover of EW‘s October issue, available on September 29th.

The 13-year-old actress and Stranger Things‘ cast and creators opened up about what to expect in the new season. Check it:

Here’s what the cast had to share with the mag:

Millie on her character Eleven in season two: “It’s more coming-of-age. She’s learning how to be a normal teenager. It’s something that I’m going through right now, so it’s pretty relatable.”

Co-creator Matt Duffer on the show’s surprising opening: “I liked opening the show in a place not in Hawkins, in an urban environment. I want people thinking maybe they’ve clicked on the wrong show and then boom, you realize, ‘Oh, we’re still in it.’ But it’s all about broadening and expanding our world.”

Noah Schnapp on his character returning from the Upside Down: “No one has ever gone through this before. So he’s confused, he’s scared, and he’s trying to cope with everything. You’ll learn in the second season how the Upside Down is affecting him and how it’s kind of changing him.”

Co-creator Ross Duffer on what fans can expect from season two: “It’s all connected to this singular threat, which is tied into this shape that Will sees in the sky. Each episode is building on the last one. It gets much crazier than it ever got in season 1.”

Shannon Purser Says This is Why People Love Barb on 'Stranger Things'

Shannon Purser Says This is Why People Love Barb on 'Stranger Things'

Shannon Purser‘s Barb on Stranger Things is an almost universally beloved character.

In a new interview, the 20-year-old actress gets candid about the public’s response to Barb and why she thinks people identified with her character and loved her so much. (#JusticeForBarb didn’t start trending for no reason.)

PHOTOS: Check out the latest pics of Shannon Purser

“It was fascinating to me,” Shannon told Deadline. “It still blows me away that she got the kind of response that she did. A lot of it, I think, is timing.”

Shannon also thinks that people connected with Barb in a special way because she wasn’t “conventional,” or comfortable in social gatherings.

“I think a lot of people definitely relate to the people who are less than conventional — at least by Hollywood standards — people who are an outcast and awkward,” she continued, “because more often than not, we don’t feel like the cool, popular kid who had everything together in high school.”

“Most of us have been a third wheel or have been stuck at a party we didn’t want to be at. I think there’s definitely this fondness about Barb and her situation because we’ve all been there before.”
