In 2016, Americans and beyond were terrified by a looming, evil presence on their television screens… And no, I’m not talking about Donald Trump at the presidential debates, but rather the diabolical “Demogorgon” on Netflix’s runaway smash hit, Stranger Things—the show we all binge-watched (and rewatched) this year.
Hearkening back to the nostalgic Steven Spielberg-era family horror of the ‘80s, Stranger Things became, ironically, the least strange and most comforting escape in a world gone mad when it premiered on the streaming service over the summer. Its cast of endearing, relatable kids anchored the show’s otherwise dark and conspiratorial premise with a sense of levity and heart. Natalia Dyer was one of those kids—or rather, teenager.
Playing Nancy Wheeler, the high school-aged big sis to Mike, the Eleven-crushin’, Dungeons and Dragons player trying to unravel the mystery of his disappeared friend, Dyer’s character started off as the typical vision of any early ‘80s cinematic coming-of-age teen girl: an eye-rolling, boy obsessed princess caught between the worlds of popularity and authentic friendship. Facing incredible danger, however, Nancy quickly evolved into one of the show’s most badass feminist players alongside Winona Ryder’s desperate, relentless Joyce Byers and Millie Bobby Brown’s fierce fan-favorite Eleven.
Below, the Nashville-bred, New York-based actress and I converse about what it was like landing her life-changing gig, getting caught up on ‘80s cinema (a decade she never personally experienced), learning how to navigate the industry with grace thanks to a certain iconic co-star, and, of course, justice for Barb.
A new project was recently added to Natalia’s IMDb page, the name of this project is “Yes, God, Yes”, a new short film directed by Karen Maine and produced by Katie Cordeal, where she will play the role of Alice, a fifteen-year-old who has always been a good Catholic, but when an innocent AOL chat turns unexpectedly racy, she finds herself suddenly obsessed with sex. The short film is set to premiere in 2017.

In the second season of Netflix’s highly anticipated science fiction horror TV show “Stranger Things,” viewers will finally see justice for Barb Holland (Shannon Purser). The show’s creators previously revealed that they will address the issue in the upcoming season. The first trailer for season 2 confirmed the statements, showing how the small town of Hawkins, Indiana, is responding to the teen’s disappearance.
Netflix unveiled the first trailer for “Stranger Things” on Halloween, titled “Minute by Minute with Brenda Wood.” The clip teased a news report from Hawkins, informing viewers that the teen who was previously thought to have run away was actually missing. The news anchor Brenda Wood informed viewers about the missing person and where she was last seen.
Wood also told the audience that they tried to get a statement from Nancy Wheeler (Natalia Dyer) but was unable to contact Barb’s best friend. On the other hand, the anchor was able to get descriptions from Barb’s other friends, who weren’t mentioned in the news segment.
“[She’s] the kind of girl who notices if you’re wearing a new bra and can really rock a pair of mom jeans. Or as we call them now, jeans,” Wood read the descriptions given by Barb’s friends.
Furthermore, the “Minute by Minute with Brenda Wood” news segment also dedicated a few minutes to discuss a situation which happened in the previous season – Eleven (Millie Brown) stealing Eggos. The anchor revealed that a little girl from West Hawkins raided Bradley’s Big Buy store and stole all the Eggos she could carry.

Wood also announced that eye witnesses stepped forward claiming that shopping carts were flying across the aisles and the electronic doors were malfunctioning. The anchor advised viewers to report to the chief of police, Jim Hopper (David Harbour), if the young girl was spotted in town.
Fans can expect the main cast of “Stranger Things” — Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Finn Wolfhard, Millie Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Noah Schnapp, Natalia Dyer, Cara Buono, Charlie Heaton, and Matthew Modine — to reprise their roles for the second season.
According to the Independent, “Stranger Things” season 2 will start production this month. The forthcoming season is expected return on Netflix in 2017.
