'Stranger Things Season 4: Volume Two': Memes and Reactions
Jamie Campbell Bower, who plays the new villain Vecna, confessed how terrified Millie Bobby Brown, better known as Eleven, was of him when he appeared as the character. According to Campbell Bower, Millie couldn't even look at him when she was under the prosthetics. "They took her to a position where she's strapped in. I approached her as Vecna and she burst into tears. She wouldn't look at me and was visibly upset about the whole thing. After she cried and I made it obvious to her that I knew it was me, one of the things she said was, 'I knew it was you when I could smell cigarettes,' because I'm a smoker," the actor told Variety.
According to IndieWire, Stranger Things prosthetic designer, Barrie Gower, crafted a second skin for Bower that included 25 pieces of latex and silicone rubber glued to his body with a medical adhesive. The veins superimposed on top of Vecna's skin were mostly real, with only 10 percent CGI effects for the vine extensions. The actor's transformation took more than seven and a half hours each day, with his 3 a.m. call time to prepare for 10 to 12 hours of filming.
