Da: What would you say, is the strangest thing (pardon the pun) that you’ve experienced while working on the show? CH:
Hawkins lab is actually shot in an old mental institution and one day my friend and i went off to explore down in the basement of the building. There was a weird energy and i could see why they chose to shoot here.
initially, i taped for the role while i was filming season two of “Stranger Things” and i was flown to l.a. to screen-test with the director. Then i didn’t hear anything for a while because obviously with a movie this size lots of decisions have to be made. But after what seemed like forever i found out i was going to be a mutant. The 14 year old kid inside of me definitely freaked out!
