Stranger Things Cast to Attend APCC
Netflix is all set to give you an unforgettable experience at the biggest pop culture event in the
country by bringing its series’ immersive worlds to life—its stars included—at the AsiaPOP Comicon Manila
2017 (APCC Manila), happening this August 25 to 27 at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay City.
Netflix is giving consumers the power to watch what they want, when they want, and delivering
the joys of discovering the content they’d never expect. This year, the world’s leading Internet television
network partnered with APCC Manila to bring an opportunity for its fans in the region to discover new
shows, through interactive displays and the much-awaited celebrity appearance that includes the cast of
Stranger Things Noah Schnapp, Joe Keery, Dacre Montgomery and Sadie Sink, who will fly to Manila to
make it a memorable APCC Manila experience!
Noah Schnapp plays central character Will Byers in Stranger Things and set to play an even more
central role in the series’ plot. Schnapp, a rising star in his own right, also provided the voice to classic
klutz Charlie Brown in the Peanuts movie, and appeared in the Cold War thriller Bridge of Spies, indie film
We Only Know So Much, and Brent Green feature Untitled Loveless Fable.
The fans of the series will also undoubtedly be familiar with Joe Keery, who plays the cocky but
troubled teenager Steve Harrington. Keery has made appearances in other shows such as Empire and
Chicago Fire, indie film Henry Gamble’s Birthday Party, as well as vocals and guitar for Chicago-based band
Dacre Montgomery may be new to the Stranger Things roster, his character Billy only appearing in
the series’ second season, but he has made his mark as Jason Scott a.k.a. Red Ranger in the recent Power
Rangers movie, as well as comedy flick A Few Less Men, and thriller Safe Neighborhood.
For child star Sadie Sink, her character is another new addition to the Stranger Things cast, playing
the role of Max, Billy’s stepsister. In the past, she has appeared on series such as the drama American
Odyssey, and guest appearances on Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Blue Bloods, and The Americans.
