The NETFLIX hit series Stranger Things introduces a new character in its fourth season.
The first seven episodes of Stranger Things season four will air on May 27, 2022.
Who plays Vecna in Stranger Things?
Vecna is the newest character on the Stranger Things show and is played by Robert Englund.
Englund is famous for playing the role of the terrifying Freddy Krueger in Wes Craven’s 1984 film Nightmare on Elm Street.
He returned to horror film one last time, reprising his role as Freddy Krueger in the 2003 film Freddy vs. Jason.
Actor Elijah Wood was considering producing another Freddy Krueger film in 2018, but when asked if Englund would reprise the role if approached, he told Fansideed that it wasn’t a possibility.
“I don’t think I’ll ever wear makeup again,” he told the outlet, adding, “I’m a little too old for that.”
Englund’s most recent role in the horror film Choose or Die was released in 2022, and he is currently in post-production on Abruptio and pre-production on Harvest Moon.
In the fourth season of “Stranger Things,” he slipped into the role of Vecna, alongside “Game of Thrones” actors Joseph Quinn and Jaqen H’ghar and “Twilight” actor Jamie Campbell.
The show will also introduce Greenhouse Academy actress Grace Van Dien, Booksmart actor Eduardo Franco, Anne with an E’s Amybeth McNulty and Sherman Augustus, who starred in The Young and the Restless.
What is the role of Vecna in the series?
Vecna is the latest villain to be brought into the cast of Stranger Things as he enters his victims and transports them into their own minds where they are tormented by their own fears.
Once each victim is captured, they are eventually killed as Vecna steals her soul by committing cruel deeds.
His story will become familiar to viewers who have watched the show from the start and will begin to connect the dots with previous storylines.
David Harbour, who plays Hawkins’ police chief and Eleven’s foster father Jim Hopper, told Seventeen that Vecna was a “psychological horror.”
He told Variety, “The Upside Down was this wild west world where creatures roam, there’s violence, but we’ve never seen anything as calculated psychologically evil as this.”
Where can I watch Stranger Things?
Stranger Things season four premiered on Netflix on May 27, bringing the horror story back to viewers.
The show is available to stream exclusively on Netflix, which will air all seven episodes of season four.
