Have you ever imagined what a day in the life of the Stranger Things actors might be like? Well, no more, as Netflix has produced a mini-documentary following the group about for a day of filming Season 4, which was recently released and set a new record. As the day progresses, we see Millie Bobby Brown, Gatan Matarazzo, and Caleb McLaughlin‘s recognizable faces come for their on-set call time. Before filming can begin, there is some business to be taken care of, in the shape of a costume fitting. In the costume master’s room, where Brown collaborates with the show’s wardrobe staff to create the right look for numerous of her characters, colorful ’80s attire abounds.
Next, we sit down with Matarazzo as he enters the makeup chair and shares his favorite tips for at-home skincare. Filming is finally beginning as the day progresses! As the cameras begin to film, Will Byers aka Noah Schnapp, the youngster who began it all, introduces returning actress Gabriella Pizzola and new-to-the-franchise actor Eduardo Franco to the audience. Now that the entire crew has arrived, Finn Wolfhard and Charlie Heaton have joined in on the fun arrow scene in Suzie‘s (Pizzola) residence. Lucas (McLaughlin) flourishes in the afternoon when he has the chance to demonstrate his abilities on the court.
With McLaughlin guiding us through the process, we get a short behind-the-scenes peek at how the basketball game scenario was shot. What would a complete day of labor be without a stunt rehearsal, after all? We join Sadie Sink, who is preparing for the much-discussed levitation scene that has Kate Bush trending all over again. Finally, when the performers of our favorite sci-fi action series sign out for the night, we bid farewell to them as they wrap off another successful day freeing Hawkins of the terrible forces that threaten to tear it apart.
