Ok, i know how this sounds, but after finishing Stranger Things, I felt jealous of the actors who were casted. Especially since they are 2 years older than me and already have Hollywood fame and success, like Sadie Sink, Millie Bobby Brown and Noah Schnapp. I feel depressed just thinking about them.

  1. It doesn’t matter what level you reach there is always a level above. You’re never going to be able to beat the nepotism of the higher echelon. Perfect your craft. Do it for you. And sometimes the stars align.

  2. There’s a little bitterness in the nepotism remark that’s also not helpful. I’ve been doing this long enough to have witnessed actors without a family hook do very well. It’s more like being jealous of someone who won the lottery: it’s a waste of time and energy.

  3. Sadie her parents were highschool teachers in a small town somewhere in Texas.😃 Millie Bobby brown’s family went almost bankrupt. Kiawentiio got her first audition for a Netflix series (Anne with an E) and immediately got it. Now she is gonna star In one of the most biggest show, avatar the last airbender, as Katara. Some are lucky, some need to work a tad harder. It is what it is. I’m just here to help you.

  4. I honor the spirit of this comment, but these are not accurate representations of the origins of these actors. It's VERY important to not mythologize and buy into the "hard work will get you all the way" narrative that these push. Often, these actors have PR firms behind them actively pushing narratives like this to make the actors more publicly desirable.

  5. You could learn to be happy for them instead. Whenever you feel jealousy, say something nice instead. It takes as much effort as being jealous.

  6. They've been in the business as long as they've been able to remember a line. Do you have that many years of training or experience yet? I'm guessing no. That doesn't mean you get famous after X years, but it's important to remember that many young adults have been in the industry for years prior to becoming 'famous'.

  7. Sadie Sink was born in 2002. She worked in community theatre until 2012. She didn't properly enter the industry until 2012 (big regional theatre production at TUTS). Within 3 years of her professional debut, she was on Broadway and had a major recurring role in a TV series.

  8. If you didn't audition for these roles, it has nothing to do with you. There are thousands of auditions every day across North America, get yourself into some of them, out-act everyone else there, then - if you don't get cast - deal with it.

  9. I'm happy for them. They didn't get overnight success and worked hard along the way. They were a bit lucky getting cast but luck alone doesn't make a successful actor. Talent alone doesn't make a successful actor either.

  10. Don't be jealous of the fame, you're looking at it the wrong way. Be jealous they get to do the craft of acting for the rest of their lives with it as a super stable job

  11. their adulthoods are going to suck because theyll always be the kids from stranger things. i couldnt have told you three characters real names before reading the title of your post, theyll just always be the stranger things gang, even when one of them eventually turns into randy quaid
