When Chance first watched Stranger Things on Netflix, he was instantly hooked. He was in LOVE with the show, and every day at school, he would ask all his friends and classmates if they were watching. It was his favorite thing to talk about!

When he heard that season two was coming out, Chance decided that the only thing better than watching Stranger Things was be to actually be ON Stranger Things. While he didn’t consider himself the best actor in the world, he grew up watching his sister act and be amazing on stage, and he wanted to follow in her footsteps.

So, he went online and looked at every website he could find to see if there were any casting calls for Stranger Things extras. He searched and searched, but he couldn’t find anything online. He signed up for two casting apps – Project Casting and Casting Taylor Made – and he submitted his information. He did everything he could to land an audition, but he was slightly discouraged when he didn’t immediately get a response.

One day, in the middle of class, he received an e-mail notification on his phone. He couldn’t believe it – it was from the casting agency! When he got out of school and checked the e-mail, he started to totally freak out – he had been selected as an extra for Stranger Things! He called his mom and they both celebrated through texting.

When it was time for Chance to appear on the show, he could hardly contain his excitement. He had a fitting for his costume, and he was dressed in a special outfit for the scene. When he walked into the room for filming, he could hardly believe his eyes – he saw Millie Bobby Brown, Finn Wolfhard, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Sean Astin, David Harbour AND Winona Ryder! Some of his favorite actors from his favorite TV shows were all standing in the same room as him!

Chance ended up dancing the background of the Snow Ball dance scene, and it was such a cool experience. He has so many awesome memories from working on set, and when he looks back at that day, he can hardly believe it when he says, “I was in a Stranger Things episode!”
