Timothée Chalamet stars as Edgar, the son of Edward Scissorhands, and Winona Ryder reprises her role as Kim Boggs. Watch as the all-electric Cadillac LYRIQ helps Edgar take the wheel with a high-tech helping hand.
Production on Season 3 of Netflix’s Stranger Things is winding down, with the cast filming an epic season finale in Duluth, Georgia.
Stars Winona Ryder (Joyce Byers), Millie Bobby Brown (Eleven), Finn Wolfhard (Mike Wheeler) and Joe Keery (Steve Harrington) were spotted on the set, all wearing rather unique costumes. There was also a heavy military presence on the set, with numerous extras playing army soldiers, teasing that the season finale could be jam-packed with action.
Among the numerous actors dressed as army soldiers was, surprisingly, Winona Ryder, decked out in all green fatigues with black combat boots. She wasn’t carrying a rifle, like many of the military extras, and she was wearing solid green fatigues instead of green and black camouflaged fatigues others wore. She was also seen walking with another male actor, wearing a black jacket over her fatigues while tying her hair back in a ponytail.
Season 3 of Stranger Things won’t debut until sometime in 2019, but Netflix hasn’t issued a Season 3 premiere date yet.
You can find in our gallery pictures from the set (thanks to Emily) and also some pictures from the set back in June.
LA Times published an amazing interview with Winona and David Harbour (to please our #Jopper hearts!), alongside a pretty portrait, which you can find in our gallery. Hopefully more will be released later. Check below the interview, as well.
Sitting inside the Dolby Theatre’s lounge shortly before a PaleyFest panel for “Stranger Things,” Winona Ryder hears the roar of the not-so-distant crowd and she’s a little confused.
“What is that?” Ryder asks David Harbour.
“It’s the cast of ‘The Wire,’ Winona,” Harbour teases, as it should be self-evident, since they’re about an hour from taking the stage with their “Stranger Things” cast mates, what all the hubbub is about.
“I went to the PaleyFest event for ‘The Wire,’” Ryder replies, ignoring him. “And I was in the audience, kind of going crazy like that. I mean, I got to meet Bunk …” and here Ryder, as she will, veers off into a bit of a beautiful tangent about the actor Wendell Pierce, who played Det. William “The Bunk” Moreland on David Simon’s celebrated series before circling back to the screaming fans unleashing an explosive clamor upon the young cast members of “Stranger Things.”
“I didn’t even think about boys until I was 16,” Ryder tells Harbour. “When I was 12, boys were the last thing on my mind.” She pauses, frowning. “I worry about them. It’s overwhelming. You think it’s going to last forever. There has always been this false narrative that if you’re an actor, fame comes with the territory and you have to relinquish everything. I remember when all that mattered was that you were in a good movie. That sounds ridiculous today.”
Today, Ryder and Harbour are the adults in the room, anchoring the sideways secrets of “Stranger Things’” Upside Down world with wrenching, emotional performances. Their characters — Harbour’s police chief Jim Hopper and Ryder’s single mother Joyce Byers — have a history that encompasses the past (they dated in high school), the present (Hopper repeatedly helps rescue Joyce’s luckless son, Will) and, undoubtedly, the future. Their on-screen chemistry has turned Joyce and Hopper into one of television’s most shipped pairs (#Jopper), a designation they both relish.
“I’m so hungry to work with Winona because she’s willing to cut me and be cut and we’ll bleed together,” Harbour says. “And that’s a rare thing.”
Winona Ryder and the cast of Stranger Things attended this Sunday (25) in LA the show’s panel at the PaleyFest.
Executive producer Shawn Levy teased at the red carpet about the new season, and what we can expect:
“Season 3 is set in the summer, so right out of the gate that’s a big difference. The first two seasons were very much school-based. This is that time of year where it’s not about school, it’s about the swimming pool and campfires and parades and Fourth of July and fireworks, so there’s kind of a poppy fun to Season 3 that’s really enjoyable before things inevitably turn super dark.”
During the panel, more was discussed about what to expect on S3. Eleven (Millie Bobbie Brown) and Mike (Finn Wolfhard), and Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin) and Max (Sadie Sink), respectively, would all be couples at the beginning of the season. Also, the 1985 film Back to the Future will be a reference in the new season.
During the panel, the cast discussed their on-set bonding and the most challenging aspects of the series for them. Winona Ryder, who plays Joyce, kicked off the conversation by revealing that when she was in a room with two of her crushes growing up, including moderator Wil Wheaton (an actor in Stand By Me) and her co-star on Stranger Things season two, Sean Astin, who plays her boyfriend.
“If you got to see this episode just now, you can see that I got to enjoy that,” Astin joked. (In the episode screened, it is revealed that Ryder and Astin’s character are a couple.)
Winona also said that the most challenging part for her was playing a woman whose son is in constant peril. “Charlie [Heaton] and I had one scene where I wasn’t a basket case and then right off the bat, it was my worst nightmare,” she said. She added that Heaton, who plays her son, sometimes distracted her with “the accesses he has to his emotions.”
Check in our gallery pictures of the event. Enjoy!
As we previously announced, they aired last night during the Golden Globes the new L’Oreal Paris commercial, and you can now watch it below:
Now a personal opinion: it’s always amazing to see Winona doing new projects. I hope more and more we can see her face around, because new projects means her in spotlight. But I am honestly tired of this “comeback” headline.
We’ve hearing it for 10 years already. Since she was cast in The Informers, and that was in 2008, we’re reading about her comeback. It’s enough, guys, she didn’t go anywhere and is working non stop on cinema and tv since then.
America loves a comeback—or at least L’Oréal Paris is betting it does in an ad from McCann breaking on Sunday’s Golden Globe Awards on NBC. Winona Ryder has been enlisted to pitch Elvive hair-care products, which are all about helping damaged hair, and a faltering brand, stage a comeback. Watch it:
