Stranger Things season 4 came out on May 27, 2022. Many of the older characters as well came back to the screen this season as well as a few new characters. 

The season opens to Eleven’s past and continues to flash back as the season progresses. During this time they introduce some of the other children raised with Eleven or her “siblings.” 

I was able to get in contact with some of elevans siblings, including Lana Jean Turner who plays 007. Turner not only was excited to be a part of stranger things since she was a fan, she also made many friends along the way. 

“Honestly, I loved everyone so much. It was super great working with the people that I grew up watching, and meeting all of the new cast was just incredible too. They’re like brothers and sisters to me.” Jean said. 

One of the cast members that Turner met and worked, was Stranger Things star, Millie Bobby Brown. one of her favorites to film with was Matthew Modine who played Dr Brenner who was also known as “Papa.” 

“Someone who was really interesting to spend time with was Matthew Modine. He’s a really cool guy, and I learned a lot from him.” said Turner.  

Turner started acting when she was 12 years old. She was able to get her agent, JPervis at this time too. 

“They’re super supportive and I love having them and my manager in my corner too.” 

Turner’s first role before Stranger Things was a DC series called Doom patrol. Turner played a young version of April Bowlby. 

Another actress I was able to talk to was Jessica Arden Napier who played 005 in Stranger Things. 

Napier had many lines in the show while she and others bullied Eleven in later episodes in season 4. During this time she was able to spend more time with Millie Bobby Brown while on set. 

“I loved working with everyone, the numbers, Matthew Modine, Jaimie Campbell Bower, and Millie Bobby Brown. I had the closest interactions with Millie and Matthew and they are incredible actors and human beings. They were so sweet and inviting but driven and committed, it was very exciting to watch and be a part of it all.” said Napier 

Napier also had previous acting roles where she was a part of the film “Halloween Kills” she was a part of the 1978 flashback of the Michael Myers story. 

Naper made sure to watch every season of Stranger Things.“I have always binged every season of stranger things since the beginning! I only knew the storyline of the part of season 4 I was in so I was in for a surprise as well and absolutely loved it!” Napier said. 

Turner and Napier were very easy to talk to and were kind enough to share never seen before behind the scene photos.
