Stranger Thing’s Star Joe Kerry Was Shocked At Character’s Transformation

Since starring on Stranger Things, Joe Kerry has some cool projects lined up. Such as Free Guy with Ryan Reynolds. It was his role as Steve Harrington on Stranger Things, though; that gave him his start in Hollywood.

If you recall in the first season of Stranger Things, Kerry’s character was a real prick. There were so many times I wanted to punch him. Fans didn’t really like him. That was until the end of season one. Recently Kerry, in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter; he spoke about how his character did a total turnabout and how it surprised even him.

“No, not really,” Keery revealed when asked if he knew about Steve’s change of heart from the beginning of filming. “That was kind of developed along the way during shooting. I had gotten maybe six episodes, and even those six changed as we were shooting. So, I was a day player and just living down in Atlanta. Luckily enough, they wrote some more stuff for me to do.”

He added:

“It’s really fun to watch some emotional growth from a character. It’s fun to go somewhere, and the brothers really allowed me to do that. The thing to really look for in any character is an arc. I mean, that’s why I really liked Spree. There’s a real arc to the character. And so, yeah, it just really exceeded my expectations in every way.”

Keery also shared his thoughts on the big coming out scene between Steve and Robin (Maya Hawke) in season 3 in an interview with Netflix Queue.

“I don’t know about emotional. It was rewarding to get to that final sequence in the midst of all this crazy supernatural shit that’s going on — to do a scene that felt real and pretty honest. The action stuff is really fun, but it’s always nice when you get a two- or three-page scene to do in full, especially on a show with so many characters.”

From a teaser released for Stranger Things in February, we see that Jim Hopper (David Harbour) is alive. I was jumping up and down I just knew he had to be! Hooper is the man! What else is to come for the series is what we all want to know. Back in March I actually attended a casting call for the show. Unfortunately, I didn’t get the call, but it’s been a alluded that in a more recent casting call that the show could have a fifth season. I, for one; am really hoping so. What has been reported is the fourth season may have nine episodes where we usually only have eight. That’s a plus we’ll take. Rumor is the fourth season will be out in 2021. Oh, Netflix please surprise us and drop it this year, we need it, as we have been robbed of so many movies this year.

The first three seasons of Stranger Things are streaming on Netflix.
