You always find your way back
home for your first acting role.
Natalie Dyer may be known for her role as Nancy Wheeler on Netflix Stranger Thingsbut the 27-year-old actress got her start somewhere far, far away from the Upside Down: Hannah Montana: The Movie.
Back in 2009, Natalia made her acting debut as the character Clarissa Granger, a British superfan of Hannah Montana (who also happened to be the daughter of the film’s villain, Oswald Granger).
How did she land the gig? Natalia said it happened while she was growing up in Nashville, Tenn.
“It wasn’t a big movie town at the time, and then this kind of larger production rolled through,” she explained during an Aug. 11 appearance at The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. “It was a big deal. Everyone was very excited.”
She continued: “They had these two British as twin roles that they decided to cast locally and somehow I, yeah.”
