Charlie Heaton Talks 'Stranger Things' Success in 'V Man' Magazine

Charlie Heaton poses on the cover of V Man‘s Spring 2019 issue, out on newsstands on March 1.

The 25-year-old actor opened up about working with girlfriend Natalia Dyer, Stranger Things and perfecting his craft:

On the success of Stranger Things: “The characters have been on a journey, and all of us [as actors] have been on a journey. Sometimes I’ll get extremely nostalgic for the first season; there was innocence in not knowing what it would become…The trajectory of the last three years happened so quick; you don’t have time to think. And when you get a grip of things, you think, yeah I can be in control of my own destiny.”

On acting with co-star and girlfriend Natalie Dyer: “To go home with someone you work with, and say, ‘I think they hate me…’ They’ll say, ‘No they don’t.’ You can break the walls down with your partner. Because we work in the same industry and have had similar trajectories, we’ve gone through it together. Sharing that does bring you closer. They understand something that maybe no one else would. You go into high-pressure situations together but you can share those insecurities or whatever they are. The great, happy times, too…Really f**king sweet!

On acting: “I find it hard to walk away from any scene and be like, that was f**king great! Did you see me do that? You always walk away with self-doubt. I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to please myself.”
