Welcome back Winona Ryder!
The actress, who was a huge "it" girl in the 90s, has had key roles in many films in fairly recent times, but her star has certainly faded over time. But, judging by her role in the newly released trailer for Netflix's "Stranger Things" and a role in "Beetlejuice 2," were she'll recreate Lydia Deetz from the beloved 1988 film, Winona is back and taking Hollywood with a vengeance.
Last year, the actress won rave reviews for her role in the TV mini-series "Show Me a Hero." She's parlayed that momentum into her newest spine tingling role where she plays a mother searching for her son who goes missing.
Scenes for "Stranger Things" show her pleading with police and scouring the town while desperate to find him. All and all, she seems incredibly believable in the eerie series.
It was a challenge for her to take on the role, as well.
"It's all about trying something new," she told People magazine of the role, her first leading role in a TV series. "This is a genre that I enjoy watching, but haven't necessarily explored before, which drew me to the project.
"I think the audience will love the nostalgic voyage back in time before technology had completely took over. Kids were asked to put their toys away at dinner - not their phones. Yet, there were astronauts were going to space and government conspiracies loomed. It was just such a different world back then."
The first episode of the series airs July 15.
Oddly, underneath the disheveled character, Winona seems to have not aged a day since her breakout roles in the late 80s and 90s, but don't tell her that.
"I do look older. And, obviously, everyone knows about airbrushing," she told The Sunday Times in February. "I feel like it sounds ridiculous for me to talk about ageism, because I've been very lucky, in the sense that in other people's eyes, I've maintained this [youthfulness], but I wish society could just celebrate aging and it could be more of a goal. I do enjoy getting older."
In 2013, she told Interview Magazine that she was proud of her Botox-less life.
"I'm not trying to knock it but, you know, I have a little bit of traffic now on my forehead - which I'm very proud of actually - and it's interesting how people just instinctively are like, 'Oh, maybe you should get something done for that.' And it's like, 'Really?'"
Judging from her ongoing career comeback, we're all going to be seeing a lot of more of Winona, and we couldn't be more excited!
