Stranger Things star Caleb McLaughlin is featured in the May 2018 issue of Bello Brasil Magazine.
From the digital issue:
The year is 2018. Google can make phone calls, schedule an appointment or even order pizza. “When we look back, we can remember how wonderful those times were compared to what we are living now,” says McLaughlin. “I think we constantly become fascinated by time, the past and so, we like to create things about how people remember those times. It’s kind of a cozy feeling, you know?”
Stranger Things is this fascination turned into a series. “I’ve never heard of Atari before,” says McLaughlin. He also talks the weight-of objects from the past. “Everything was very heavy at that time and nowadays it’s totally the opposite!”
Despite being young, he has a fascination with what the past has produced. “I love R&B so the 1990s are my favourite R&B moment. K-Ci and Jojo, Whitney Houston, Mary J. Blige, Boyz II Men, Usher, Aaliyah, TLC, Janet Jackson, in fact, it’s a good time, with a lot of great music.”
Stranger Things is now streaming on Netflix.
