Netflix released a new featurette for Stranger Things, in which Winona discusses her character, Joyce Byers.
“I know a lot of women like that, who are good people but they struggle,” Ryder said of her character.
“I like that there are sort of different story lines. You really don’t know what is around the corner or what is going to happen,” added Ryder. “It’s like putting the pieces of a puzzle together and it’s fun to watch.”
Executive producer Shawn Levy said Ryder fit the bill for the challenging role. “You need someone who can wretch up the emotional urgency and yet find layers and nuance and different sides of this character,” he said.
“I was grateful that they trusted that I could get to those places,” Ryder said.
“Stranger Things” is executive produced by Levy, the Duffer Brothers and Dan Cohen. It’s currently streaming worldwide on Netflix.
Winona Ryder, Peter Sarsgaard & Kellan Lutz along with director John Leguizamo, discuss their new film, ‘Experimenter’ at Sundance 2015. Peter Sarsgaard says his character as lived life ‘one step out of this world so that he could see it.’
Just finished watching and capping Winona interview on Jimmy Fallon (aired last wednesday) and it was great! Loved all the ‘internet’ part, hey, soon she’ll have a laptop. 😆
