The supernatural drama “Stranger Things” has added new series regulars Sadie Sink and Dacre Montgomery and promoted Joe Keery (Steve Harrington) and Noah Schnapp (Will Byers) to regulars from recurring. They’ll join series stars Wynona Ryder, Finn Wolfhard, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin and Millie Bobby Brown, who recently signed with WME in a very competitive situation.
Sink will play Max, a tough and confident girl whose appearance, behavior and pursuits seem more typical of boys than girls of this era. She has a complicated history and is generally suspicious of those around her.
Montgomery is Billy, Max’s hyper-confident and edgy older step-brother. He steals girlfriends away from their boyfriends, is great at drinking games, and drives a black Camaro. But lurking under his apparent charisma is a violent and unpredictable nature.
Sink began her professional acting career in the Broadway revival of Annie and also on Broadway opposite Helen Mirren in The Audience. On television, she appeared as a series regular on NBC’s American Odyssey, as well as in guest spots on Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Blue Bloods, and The Americans. She will next be seen in upcoming features The Glass Castle and The Bleeder.
The Duffer brothers are developing nine new episodes for the second season for premiere in 2017. They’ll be joined by fellow executive producers Shawn Levy and Dan Cohen.
