Chase revealed in an interview with Access Hollywood that he drove quite a long way for the audition process, and admitted he didn’t do as well as he expected.

“I actually read for Steve Harrington and I forgot all the lines and absolutely effed up,” he said. “I drove eight hours from Atlanta back to Orlando regretting every moment of my life on that.”

Looking back though, Chase isn’t too bummed out about missing out on the part, because “the Duffer brothers decided to write me back into the show.”

If you didn’t know, Chase was in the first season of the series as Reed, a character who appeared, but didn’t have any lines.

“I’m just thankful for the Duffer brothers for giving me an opportunity to, like, do my job and start my career,” Chase added. “I mean if it weren’t for them, I wouldn’t be here.”

As far as Joe getting the role of Steve, Chase is praising the star.

“Joe Keery is an absolute legend who is so good as Steve Harrington,” he says. “I’m super proud of him, I’ve talked to him a little bit throughout the years.”

Stranger Things season five is set to start filming soon. Meanwhile, Outer Banks season three is about to debut on Netflix TOMORROW!
