Stranger Things star Natalia Dyer on ‘exciting’ role
STRANGER Things star Natalia Dyer said it was ‘exciting’ to take on a different type of role in satirical horror film Velvet Buzzsaw.
Dyer, 22, is best known as teenager Nancy Wheeler in Netflix’s sci-fi drama Stranger Things.
However the US actress’ latest role is in Velvet Buzzsaw, also a Netflix offering, which is a gory horror set in the rarefied world of high-end art.
Dyer said an exciting part of being an actor is trying different roles.
She said: ‘As an actor you’re always trying to seek out new things and try different things. It was a very different role and it felt different and that’s exciting.
‘Of course I love playing Nancy, but it’s fun, that’s the point — to explore different people.’
Dyer attended the Velvet Buzzsaw premiere in Los Angeles with Stranger Things co-star and boyfriend Charlie Heaton.
The pair were pictured together a day earlier at the movie’s Sundance Film Festival premiere.
Stranger Things season three is due to arrive on Netflix on July 4 while Velvet Buzzsaw will hit the streaming service on February 1.
