Here Are Some Films The Cast Of 'Stranger Things' Are In That You Probably Did Not Know About

The characters of the show are easy to fall in love with and we just can't seem to get enough of them.

We just can't get enough of Stranger Things. The sci-fi thriller series is currently in its fourth season after the first volume premiered on May 27. The second volume will be released in less than two weeks. The time between the first two volumes has allowed a lot of us to rewatch the entire series again. This was pretty evident in the fact that the other season of Stranger Things have made it to the Top 10 list as well. 

Stranger Things Season 4 Volume 1

The characters of the show are easy to fall in love with and we just can't seem to get enough of them. The actors who play these characters will forever be iconic. It may be difficult for a Stranger Things fan to see them as other characters but they are good actors after all. They will do justice to whatever role they take on. Here are some movies you can find the cast of Stranger Things in:

1. Enola Holmes

Millie Bobby Brown who plays El in Stranger Things took on the role of Enola Holmes, Sherlock's sister, in the film of the same name. She not only played the titular role but also served as producer for the film. A second film is on the way in which she will be reprising her role alongside Louis Partridge, Adeel Akhtar, Susie Wokoma, Sharon Duncan-Brewster, David Thewlis, Henry Cavill, and Helena Bonham Carter.
