During the SAG Awards the cast of Stranger Things took the time to deliver a fiery speech calling for actors to use acting "to cultivate a more emphatic and understanding society." David Harbour delivered the acceptance speech for the cast of Stranger Things for their win for Best Ensemble Cast. I would just like to say that in light of everything thats going on in the world today, its hard to celebrate the already celebrated Stranger Things,' said Harbour. But this award from you, who take your craft seriously, and earnestly believe, like me, that great acting can change the world, is a call to arms from our fellow craftsmen and women to go deeper, and through our art to battle against fear, self-centeredness and exclusivity of our predominantly narcissistic culture, and through our craft to cultivate a more empathetic and understanding society by revealing intimate truths that serve as a forceful reminder to folks that when they feel broken, and afraid, and tired, they are not alone. We are united in that we are all human beings, and we are all together on this horrible, painful, joyous, exciting and mysterious ride that is being alive. Harbour continued by arguing that the cast and crew of Stranger Things will treat the show as an opportunity to "repel bullies." Now as we act in the continuing narrative of Stranger Things, we 1983 Midwesterners will repel bullies. We will shelter freaks and outcasts, those who have no home. We will get past the lies. We will hunt monsters. And when we are at a loss amidst the hypocrisy and the casual violence of certain individuals and institutions, we will, as per Chief Jim Hopper, punch some people in the face when they seek to destroy the weak, and the disenfranchised, and the marginalized. And we will do it all with soul, with heart, and with joy. We thank you for this responsibility. Thank you.Facebook. On Twitter, follow us at @projectcasting.
