Jamie Campbell Bower spent seven hours a day putting on makeup while portraying Vecna on season four of stranger things.
The hit Netflix sci-fi series ended its fourth season on Friday (July 1).
In conversation with RadioTimes.commakeup designer Barrie Gower spoke about the lengthy process of getting Bower into the role for the show.
“Everything was pre-painted. We taped everything up,” he said. “We had to put all the dots together, airbrush all the colors and everything, and make everything beautiful. We got his lenses in – his contact lenses.
“It was about an eight and a half hour process, first time with Jamie, from start to finish.”
Though they eventually managed to streamline the process, it still apparently took an average of seven hours to transform Bower into his monstrous form.
“I think we got it down to about six hours and 20 minutes,” Gower said. “That was our record. But on average it was about seven hours I think. Something like that.
“The actual application process was a well-orchestrated dance. The four of us applied his makeup. And we would do this kind of dance around him. Someone had to be in a certain place at a certain time.
“It was a marathon every day, but it was amazing,” he added. “We never had a complaint from Jamie.”
