Stranger Things Season Two cropped Spoiler Warning!

This article reveals details about the upcoming season two of Stranger Things. Read at your own discretion.

Roman is a recurring character in the second season of Stranger Things. She is a woman in her thirties who has a connection to the Hawkins Lab who lives outside of Hawkins. She is an emotionally damaged outsider who doesn't understand how to connect with people. Roman grew up homeless with a drug-addicted mother, suffered a great loss at an early age and has been seeking revenge ever since.

Behind the scenes

The character was first revealed in a casting call obtained by The Hollywood Reporter. She was billed as a series regular and described as "male or a female of any ethnicity between the ages of 30 and 38," meaning the character could end up being of either sex.[1]

The Duffer Brothers said in an interview that one of the new adult characters in Season Two is involved in Joyce's life, whereas the other is involved in the labs.[2] The character involved with the labs was revealed to be Roman on November 7, 2016, when it was announced that Danish actress Linnea Berthelsen had been cast for the role.[3]
