According to Jamie Campbell Bower, Vecna’s voice in Stranger Things Season 4 didn’t need any additional effects.
With his performance of Henry Creel aka One aka Vecna in Stranger Things Season 4, Jamie Campbell Bower has once again shown that he is an actor of exceptional skill. Amazingly, being the Upside Down villain required more than just donning prosthetics. To record Vecna’s monologue for the Netflix series, Bower had to alter his own voice, as seen in a recent behind-the-scenes video.
It’s no secret that Jamie Campbell Bower underwent a lot to prepare for his part as Vecna in Stranger Things Season 4. It took many hours every day to put on the prosthetics that turned him into a slimy humanoid creature with vines growing out of his back. However, it appears that Bower didn’t require much assistance in order to recognize Vecna’s voice.
The official Stranger Things Writers Twitter account has posted a new video that features Jamie Campbell Bower capturing ADR for Vecna’s monologue. Amazingly, the video demonstrates that Bower just changed his voice to create the villain’s deep, guttural sound without the aid of any special effects.
Even while it is a very fantastic revelation, Jamie Campbell Bower being the character he plays shouldn’t come as much of a surprise. It is essential to keep in mind that Bower, who headed the band Counterfeit from 2015 until 2020, is also a fantastic singer.
When Bower first appears, he is described as an orderly at Hawkins Laboratory who assists Eleven. However, it is eventually discovered that Bower is actually One, the lab’s first patient. It is further established that One was Henry Creel, son of Victor Creel, who had killed his mother and sister. He tries to assault Eleven when she declines to join him, but she uses her powers to stop him, unintentionally sending him to the Upside Down where he transforms into Vecna.
Stranger Things Season 4’s full nine episodes are available to view right now on Netflix.
