Grace Van Dien says she will be more selective about the projects she takes on in the future, but she hasn’t given up on acting and television entirely.
Because of nonconsensual sexual advances she claims to have received from an unnamed producer, Grace Van Dien, who played cheerleader Chrissy Cunningham in the well-known Netflix series “Stranger Things,” has switched to a streaming career.
The 26-year-old actor has turned down four film projects in the last two and a half weeks as a result of unfavorable past experiences with set managers, she revealed in a Twitch stream on Tuesday.
She continued, “One of the producers hired a girl he was having an affair with and then had her ask me to have a threesome with them on one of the last movies I did”.
She declined and was upset about what had happened. Because streaming is better for her mental health these days, she prefers it.
Van Dien said, “With streaming, I get to pick and choose who I hang out with and talk to. On her 303,000-follower Twitch account @BlueFille, she broadcasts herself playing video games.
The actor claims she will choose her future projects carefully, but she hasn’t completely left the acting and television industries.
“My work priorities are shifting as I get older. She tweeted on Thursday, “I’m waiting for the right project.
“I’m happy here and I’m developing my own projects. I’m hoping that someone decides to fund them because then I can be control of my own set and I’m not going to ask my actors to sleep with me,” Van Dien said.
Amid coverage of her Twitch stream, Van Dien promoted her directorial debut, “Monsters and Muses,” a 2020 short film that she starred in.
“More of this,” she tweeted Friday.
