Why The New Cast Of Stranger Things Season 3 Looks So Familiar


In addition to welcoming back most of the familiar faces of the series, the new season of Stranger Things will introduce a few newcomers, from an intriguing lifeguard to an ambitious politician. But even if they’re new to Hawkins, some of these actors just might look familiar.

There’s no doubt that Cary Elwes’ credentials precede his arrival as Mayor Larry Kline in Stranger Things 3. But what’s hard to pinpoint is exactly which role he’s most famous for. Fantasy fans probably know him best as the romantic swordsman Westley in The Princess Bride or perhaps the title role in Robin Hood: Men in Tights. For horror fans, though, it’s more likely that his turns as Lord Arthur Holmwood in Bram Stoker’s Dracula or Dr. Lawrence Gordon in Saw left the biggest marks.

Meanwhile, others might remember Elwes more as antagonist Russ Wheeler in Days of Thunder or as a cocky tornado scientist in Twister. He may even be familiar to TV fans for his appearances in series like The X-Files or Psych, to name a few. No matter what he’s best known for, he definitely comes into Stranger Things as the most veteran newcomer of the bunch.

Things are just heating up for Maya Hawke’s career as she joins Stranger Things as the ice cream-slinging Robin, but she’s been a part of show business her entire life. She’s the oldest child of Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman, and was born shortly after her folks met on the set of 1997’s Gattaca. She was raised away from the limelight, but even at a young age she still dove right into local theatrical productions and is now following in her parents’ footsteps by pursuing an acting career.

Hawke made her onscreen debut in the PBS miniseries adaptation of Little Women as Jo March, who refuses to conform to the gender expectations of her era. Soon after, she appeared in the indie thriller Ladyworld. Her post-Stranger Things resume is already set to make her even more recognizable. The buzziest of her upcoming projects is probably Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.
