"I was grateful that they trusted I could get to those places" — Winona Ryder talks about Stranger Things, the Netflix series that sees the actress in her first television role

There are two things you can't seem to hear enough of these days: Pokémon Go and Stranger Things. While we've yet to await the arrival of those pocket monsters, the promise of a delicious '80s-style supernatural thriller is just at the touch of our fingertips by way of Netflix. Yes, we're talking about Winona Ryder's first television role, where she sheds her manic pixie dream girl persona to play Joyce Byers, a single mother hell bent on finding her missing son. Two problems: Her son has seemingly vanished into thin air and there's a supernatural, paranormal presence in her home.

In this exclusive featurette, we hear from Ryder herself on what drew her to a genre she's never explored before, while fellow cast members Charlie Heaton and David Harbour tell us what sets Stranger Things apart.
