Beyond being a multiple-time record-breaker on Netflix’s most popular TV show, and most-watched shows of all time, the Stranger Things series has done even better in bringing out first-time actors and putting them out in the spotlight, thereby positioning them for tremendous success! Shannon Purser of Atlanta, Georgia, is one of such new talents who experienced overnight fame.
Now, she has moved on to a higher level in her career, courtesy of the popularity that she amassed through the show. In 2016, we got the chance to meet Barb, best friend to Nancy Wheeler, who unfortunately had a pretty unexpected exit from the series when she met with her death at the hands of the Demogorgon. The bright face behind that character, Shannon has reappeared in multiple television series with even better performances than she portrayed in her debut appearance. In Riverdale, Shannon played the Big high school teenager, Ethel Muggs, Annabelle Bowman in 2018 Rise. Meanwhile, her pioneer movie job came white early in 2017, when she acted in Barbara Marshall’s horror film, “Wish Upon.”
Even though the then-new actress was only having her first time on the screen, playing a minor role, this didn’t stop her from quickly becoming a super fan favorite. This was such a big deal for her lovers that they had no time nominating Purser for the Primetime Emmy Awards for the Best Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series! Although she did not grab that for the bag just yet, it is expected that there is much more in store for the talented Georgia native.
Since she starred in the Equal docuseries back in 2020, we haven’t seen much of her on the screen, and fans are definitely anticipating another comeback from the upcoming star actress. Here are some pictures of Shannon Purser that will literally make you gawk at how hot she actually is.
