FaZe adds Stranger Things star Grace Van Dien to their streamer roster
FaZe Clan is adding a major celebrity to their roster of top-tier streamers, welcoming Stranger Things actress Grace Van Dien as their latest content creator.
Stranger Things fans might recognize Grace Van Dien from her role as Chrissy Cunningham in Season 4 of the hit Netflix series, where she debuted as one of the most beloved characters in the show in spite of her short-lived role.
Now, she’s making even bigger moves in the streaming space by officially signing with esports and online entertainment group FaZe Clan.
Grace Van Dien signs with FaZe Clan in major streaming acquisition
On May 25, FaZe announced that it had officially signed Van Dien to its ranks, marking yet another major celebrity acquisition for the group who has worked with the likes of rappers Snoop Dogg and Lil Yachty.
According to a press release, her content will continue to be focused around playing Valorant with her friends. However, she will also create vlogs detailing the activities of her daily life, as well as being on film sets.
“Grace is breaking down barriers and paving the way for more women in gaming, but what we love most about her is that she’s not afraid to be herself,” FaZe said in a press release.
“She’s unapologetically cool and confident, and she’s inspiring women everywhere to do the same.”
Van Dien also expressed her excitement at joining up with FaZe. “Ever since my first meeting with FaZe, we shared the same vision in working together to create lasting change for female gamers in this industry,” she said of her decision to link up with the group.
“We picked each other for a reason, and I’m excited to take on an important role in bringing women to the forefront. This is not just about the announcement of me joining FaZe, it’s what we’re going to do together.”
This is just the latest big move for FaZe following their partnership with Porsche earlier this year.
