on

Priah Ferguson has been made a recurring star in her role as as the precocious scene stealer “Erica Sinclair,” who first made a guest appearance in Stranger Things 2.

Priah Ferguson will continue her role as “ERICA SINCLAIR”, Lucas’ strong-willed little sister returns, only this time with an army of friends. No longer content with sitting on the sidelines, Erica finds herself on a wild mission to save Hawkins from a dangerous and unexpected new threat.

Bio: Priah Ferguson is an American actress born in Atlanta, Georgia. She started her acting career at the age of four. She performed in short local plays, then shortly after, she was signed to an Atlanta based talent agency called People Store.

From there, she co-starred in the PBS scripted show Mercy Street, then co-starred in VH1’s Daytime Divas with Tichina Arnold. Her breakout role as “Erica Sinclair” for Stranger Things really has made her a household name. By playing Lucas’ sassy little sister, she became the scene-stealer for the series’ second season. In addition to her success in TV, she also held leading and supporting roles in award winning short films and web series. She got her inspiration to act from the movie Crooklyn and Daddy’s Little Girls. Priah is involved in her community where she’s been a spokeskid for United Way of Greater Atlanta for two years.

Maya Hawke will play “Robin”, an alternative girl who is equal parts sharp and playful. Bored with her mundane day job, she just wants a little excitement in her life… and gets more than she bargained for when she uncovers a dark secret in Hawkins.

“By Whatever Means Necessary”

SEPTEMBER 29


Bumpy Johnson (Forest Whitaker) returns from Alcatraz after an eleven year absence to reunite with his family and reclaim his Harlem territory from Italian mob boss Vincent “Chin” Gigante (Vincent D’Onofrio). He finds an unlikely ally in his old friend Malcolm X.

GODFATHER OF HARLEM is inspired by the true story of infamous crime boss Bumpy Johnson (Forest Whitaker), who in the early 1960s returned from eleven years in prison to find the neighborhood he once ruled in shambles. With the streets controlled by the Italian mob, Bumpy must take on the Genovese crime family to regain control. During the brutal battle, he forms an alliance with radical preacher Malcolm X (Nigél Thatch) – catching Malcolm’s political rise in the crosshairs of social upheaval and a mob war that threatens to tear the city apart. GODFATHER OF HARLEM is a collision of the criminal underworld and the civil rights movement during one of the most tumultuous times in American history. 

In addition to Oscar winner Forest Whitaker (The Last King of Scotland) as star and executive producer and Nigél Thatch (Selma, American Dreams), cast members include Vincent D’Onofrio (Law and Order: Criminal Intent, Daredevil), lfenesh Hadera (She’s Gotta Have It, Baywatch), Paul Sorvino (Goodfellas), Chazz Palminteri (A Bronx Tale, Modern Family), Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul), Lucy Fry (Bright, Vampire Academy), Kelvin Harrison Jr. (It Comes at Night, Mudbound) and Antoinette Crowe-Legacy.
