Try to put on your surprised face, Winona Ryder, because your “Stranger Things” co-star David Harbour plans to talk to you about your performance while he was giving his speech at the SAG Awards on Sunday.
Harbour, whose passionate speech was nearly upstaged by the parade of bizarre facial expressions Ryder made while he was making it, says that he and Ryder will discuss the matter when they next meet up. But fortunately, there’s no hard feelings.
“I’ll connect with her this week once we get back on set together, and we’ll joke about it,” Harbour, who plays lawman Jim Hopper on the Netflix series, told Vanity Fair.
“But I just love her so much,” Harbour added. “Her face is just so expressive.” (Yeah — no kidding.)
“What an amazing quality. And it’s just so fun to have people — to have this kind of fiery speech, and then to have people also appreciate the silliness and the joy of just like a totally wonderful, sensitive, expressive actress. I love it,” Harbour said.
Ryder’s facial acrobatics became a viral sensation during the SAG Awards on Sunday.
“[We] will repel bullies. We will shelter freaks and outcasts, those who have no home,” Harbour said during the speech. “[W]e will, as per Chief Jim Hopper, punch some people in the face as they seek to destroy the weak and the disenfranchised and the marginalized.”
But a good deal of social media attention was devoted to Ryder’s cavalcade of expressions.
“I feel like #WinonaRyder went through in 2 minutes every emotion and reaction I’ve had in the last 2 weeks,” one member of the Twitterati chimed in.
“I need a four year supply of whatever #WinonaRyder is having,” another offered.
Earlier this week, “Stanger Things” star Glen Matarazzo theorized that Ryder “couldn’t hear what David was saying.”
