David Harbour, star of the Hellboy reboot and Stranger Things has joined the growing list of celebrities who are reaching out to fans in an attempt to guide and support viewers. Following on from the likes of Elm Street’s Robert Englund and Shaun Of The Dead‘s Nick Frost and Simon Pegg.
From his Instagram account Harbour encourages people to text message him on a number that he has set up for the occasion, asking for information about those contacting him like what their profession is, their financial situations and what their thoughts are on the epidemic and how it seems to be affecting society.
It is his hope that he can “try to compile some database of fans and friends to see if there are easy ways to connect and help each other in the future.”. He writes “Text me (please not just ‘i love stranger things’ but with info about yourself, where are you? what do you do? Instagram handle? How’s money and work in this time? How’s family? Anything else you feel like might be interesting for me to know about you during all this?)”.
The image that Harbour has attached to the short Instagram video says that he is “big brother and Cambridge analytics without the wherewithal resources, or drive to exploit you”.
So maybe send David a message about how you’re doing and how you’re adapting to the situation on +1 917 540 5294. The number is mainly for use within the US, but may work with international extensions. Check out the Instagram post for yourself below and if you get in touch with the number let us know what you send and whether or not you are able to get a response from Chief Hopper himself!
