Prep for Caleb Mclaughlin’s character
It is very easy to criticize an actor if could not play his part properly but no one knows how much effort is needed even for the simple acting. Likewise, Caleb wanted to go under the skin of his Strange Things character Bell.
Caleb was in Harlem School of the Arts student, where he learned the skills of singing and dancing.
While auditioning, he was able to impress the director Chris Robinson and executive producer, Jesse Collins by showing his dancing and singing talent. But when he got the part of Ricky Bell, he came to know how difficult it is to portray a character. He said,
“I sing and I dance, but he’s a ladies man, And I’m a ladies man too, but I’m not as slick and smooth as he is. But I became to be more slick and smooth as he is by learning the character.”
“It was challenging to please Mr. Ricky, but what actually helped a lot was Mr. Ricky being hands on in the project, I would call him and ask him some questions. I would look up YouTube videos to see his mannerisms and his dance skills. So that’s how I became the character.”
Check out the sneak peek of his dance which he had uploaded on his Instagram account:

The biggest hurdle was a generation gap. Thinking and acting ways in the eighties and now have a huge difference,
“I never really thought that I would be doing a bunch of 80s stuff, but it’s great because I get to learn more than my era and I can learn from people’s mistakes back then. It’s pretty fun. And I get to relive my parents’ childhood.”
