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.

However, she’s since taken a step back from acting, expressing that she prefers to stream on Twitch with friends like Pokimane, Valkyrae, Sykkuno, and more.
