Stranger Things star Grace Van Dien, who is known for playing Chrissy Cunningham in the hit Netflix series, has revealed she’s temporarily quit acting after an unidentified movie producer made unwanted sexual advances towards her.
The 26-year-old actress revealed the information on her Twitch channel, where she streams under the name BlueFillie, according to Variety.
“I have seen that some people are upset with me for turning down acting projects and deciding to stream more, but the fact of the matter is the last few projects I’ve worked on, I didn’t have the best experiences with some of the people I had to work for,” Van Dien said on a Tuesday stream, per the outlet.

“With streaming, I get to choose who I hang out with, who I talk to, etc. etc.,” Van Dien continued.
“One of the last movies I did, one of the producers asked me to … like, he hired a girl that he was sleeping with and he had her ask me to have a threesome with them.”
Van Dien said the experience left her “so upset” and she “cried” after the ordeal.

“But when people are like, ‘How is streaming better for your mental health?’ That’s how. I get to stay inside my house and play video games and I don’t have my boss asking me to have sex with them,” Van Dien added in the stream.
She did say, however, that she’s hoping her break from acting wont be too long, and revealed in the stream she’s working on developing her own projects.
”I’m hoping that someone decides to fund them because then I can be in control of my own set, and I’m not gonna ask my actors to sleep with me,” she said.
