Lucas is best friends with Dustin, Mike and Will, and he played a major role in finding Will after his disappearance in season one.


Who plays Lucas in Stranger Things?

16-year-old Caleb McLaughlin is the oldest of the core Stranger Things kids, but aside from a couple of small roles on Blue Bloods and Law & Order: SVU, his pre-Stranger Things CV is pretty clean.

Like his co-star Gaten Matarazzo, he began his acting career on Broadway, starring as Simba in The Lion King musical in 2012.
