Tennessee: Natalia Dyer

The link between Tennessee and Stranger Things is related to none other than Nancy Wheeler. Natalia Dyer was born in Nashville, Tennessee. Her first job as an actress was when she was 12 and appeared in Hannah Montana: The Movie alongside Miley Cyrus.

But despite that early work, her big break wasn’t until she starred in Netflix’s Stranger Things as the teenager just trying to fit in only to find out that there was nothing normal about her town and her life was about to be changed forever.

When she was worried about becoming Steve’s girlfriend, she probably never thought she would be crawling inside a tree trying to find Jonathan Byers’ brother in a creepy other world.

Since being on the show, she has appeared in Velvet Buzzsaw alongside Jake Gyllenhaal and Rene Russo, in Yes, God, Yes, a film about a teen girl discovering her sexuality, and Tuscaloosa, a movie where she plays a patient in a mental institution with multiple personalities.

She’s also been able to explore lots of sides of Nancy Wheeler. We’ve seen her brave and ready to fight off the Demogorgon, scared for herself, her brother, and her friends, vulnerable with both Steve and Jonathan, angry for being pushed aside at the newspaper, and everything in between.
