Netflix’s Stranger Things literally changed the lives of all the cast members. From Millie Bobby Brown becoming a teen sensation to David Harbour redefining acting goals, we fans have witnessed a drastic transformation of the cast. Similarly, Natalia Dyer who plays Nancy Wheeler in the show has had an amazing journey on it.
Nancy’s character is one that has come off really strong. When you look at her you can’t even believe for once, that she can pull off this role; nevertheless, she did and like a PRO.
In a conversation with NME, Natalia Dyer spoke about her journey as Nancy Wheeler on Stranger Things.
She said, “Nancy’s had such an incredible journey and an incredible arc, and I feel very grateful to get to play that. I think we’re all deeply invested in our characters at this point so I think everyone wants those moments where they get to really see inside of their character’s mind. There’s a lot of go, go, go [in the show], but I think we always really relish the scenes where there are conservations with heart and dialogue where you really get to see what’s going on emotionally in their lives.”
Taling about her favourite scenes from the series, Dyer said, “I feel like a lot of the work I’ve done – which of course I’ve loved and want to keep doing – has been emotionally challenging. But I did really enjoy the moments of doing crazy running or fighting. It’s a lot of fun, I’m always like, ‘I could definitely do this for a couple of months!’”
When asked what kind of role would she like to play next, Natalia Dyer sportingly replied, “I’m always interested in any role that you have to learn something outside of yourself for, whether it’s a skill or an accent. I’m ready and willing to do an action movie cos that would be a lot of fun, something Tom Cruise-y!”
Well, well; is Tom Cruise listening?
