3. Sophie Turner

Yet again, I find myself noting that when it comes to Stranger Things 3, Sophie Turner is probably never going to happen. She’s simply too much of a hot commodity right now. The girl is on fire with job offers and with the general public, especially since her recent engagement to pop star Joe Jonas.

You probably know Turner best for her incredible work on HBO’s Game of Thrones. She plays Sansa Stark, the daughter of a Westerosi lord and possessor of one heck of a “do what you must to survive” attitude.

You probably also know that Turner was cast as Sansa when she was just 13 years old. It’s not often child actors actually age well, but Turner is now both a beauty and an acting powerhouse at her current age of 21. Game of Thrones really seemed to shape her abilities. She’s well-versed in a universe of fantasy, and it would seem that the world took notice.

She was cast as Jean Grey in 2016’s X-Men: Apocalypse. Despite being a critical failure, the movie still served to garner more attention for young Turner, as well as expand her experience with the sci-fi and adventure genres.

In summary, essentially the entirety of Turner’s career has been leading her to work on a project that combines the best elements of sci-fi, fantasy, and thriller. Minus her natural British accent, she’d make for an easy fit into Hawkins.

While she’s probably too hot right now to swing Stranger Things’ way, I’m still holding out a little hope to see a Stark turn up to chill with the Party.
