It helps to have a 1980s icon on set while making a show set in the 1980s and jam-packed with all things 1980s pop culture. This is the situation with “Stranger Things” and Winona Ryder, who not only plays Joyce Byers in the series but also ensures that creators Matt and Ross Duffer preserve 1980s realism on site. Ryder’s co-star informed Harper’s Bazaar that the Duffer Brothers had to modify scripts frequently after Ryder fact-checked them.
“She’d say, ‘This song actually came out in ’85, and you have it in ’83,” David Harbour explained. “She knew all of these minute, insignificant nuances that they had no idea about, and they had to adjust things in the screenplay based on that… It’s pretty awesome how wild her imagination is and how it wanders to all these other places.”
Some Information About Ryder’s Career to Date
Ryder made her film debut in the 1986 picture “Lucas.” With Tim Burton’s “Beetlejuice,” the cult hit “Heathers,” and the Jerry Lee Lewis movie “Great Balls of Fire,” her career took off in the late 1980s.
Ryder also acts as a mentor to the show’s cast of teen performers on set. “I want the youngsters to understand that this does not happen,” remarked the actor. “This is quite unique.” ‘The labour is the reward!’ I always tell them. Because it was so difficult for me to appreciate the results of my labour when I was that age.”
“This business is terrible,” Ryder went on to say. “You’re continuously working, but if you want to take a break, they tell you, ‘If you slow down, it’ll stop.'” And then it slowed down. So you’re told, ‘It’s going to be impossible to return.’ Then it switches to, ‘You’re not even in the discourse.’ It was, like, horrible.”
Ryder’s Guidance, According to Ross Duffer, Has Been Critical for the Show’s Breakout Youngster Millie Bobby Brown
“Winona talked to the kids about what it’s like to be a celebrity, how the press can be, and the worry and uncertainty that comes with it,” Duffer added. “I believe she has greatly aided them. I know she’s especially helped Millie [Bobby Brown] get through it. And no one else can truly help with that because so few people have gone through it. It’s something I don’t understand. It’s not something that even a parent would comprehend.”
Discussing Winona’s Relationship With Johnny Depp
Talking about herself is Winona Ryder’s least favourite subject. It’s natural given the difficulties she’s had in the spotlight. She did, however, speak to Harper’s Bazaar on coming to terms with her past, namely what her life was like after her famous break-up with Johnny Depp.
Stranger Things’ star fell in love with Johnny Depp in 1989. They had the same dark moodiness that you’d find in a Tim Burton film. As a result, the two of them were a wonderful fit for Tim Burton’s Edward Scissorhands, one of Winona Ryder’s best films in which she played a little girl who sees the person beyond the misunderstood scissor-handed protagonist.
After five months of dating, the couple got engaged but split up after four years. Even though their relationship didn’t work out, the 50-year-old actress defended Depp in court during the Depp vs. Heard trial when he was accused of being a “wife abuser.” Despite the fact that she was not present at the trial, her statement stated that the Pirates of the Caribbean actor being violent was the “furthest thing” from the truth.
