David Harbour is a good friend. And friends don't lie.
David Harbour (Chief Jim Hopper) has a great relationship with his fans. He promised to do Hopper's dad dance if he won the Golden Globe Award, and he probably would've done it if the Hollywood Foreign Press Association had obliged him with votes. Proving he is true to his word on another front, Harbour fulfilled a promise he made to a high school senior to take school portraits with her if she got enough retweets.
Here's the story, which started in late October 2017, right after the Netflix premiere of Season 2...
.@DavidKHarbour how many retweets for you take my senior photos with me— damaris ◟̽◞̽ (@postydamaris) October 29, 2017
As you can see by the number of retweets to her post, it worked.
25k. And I get to wear the school sweatshirt and hold a trombone. https://t.co/xPNEE681J4— David Harbour (@DavidKHarbour) October 29, 2017
I wanna thank everyone from the bottom of my heart! None of this would've happened w/o y'all. Y'all are gonna make my senior photos 💣.com— damaris ◟̽◞̽ (@postydamaris) October 30, 2017
Fast-forward to January 2018...
my family keeps saying it's the "big day" haha— damaris ◟̽◞̽ (@postydamaris) January 10, 2018
And here they are, the greatest senior portraits the Upside Down has ever seen:
I don't always take senoir portraits, but when I do, it's because @postydamaris gets 25k+ retweets and @DavidKHarbour agrees to take them with her as long as he is allowed to hold a trombone. 😂 pic.twitter.com/XTmYjrvm9r— Tommy Garcia (@iamtommyg) January 12, 2018

oh i forgot to say yesterday david was playing the trombone and i gave that an A, little rough but well played! 😂— damaris ◟̽◞̽ (@postydamaris) January 11, 2018
Once again I wanna thank everyone from the bottom of my heart! I would've never met david if it wasn't for you who rt'ed! It's still hard to believe that I met him, but I thank you, for the continuous love and support on all my social medias! y'all are too sweet! much love xoxo— damaris ◟̽◞̽ (@postydamaris) January 13, 2018
So cool. Of course, the danger of this from a celeb perspective is that it sets a precedent. It's like promposals -- once you accept one, it sets a bar for you and other celebs to accept more requests and proposals. And if you say no, you often get shamed for being bad to your fans. (Remember what happened to Finn Wolfhard?)
So while it's awesome that Harbour did this, don't go expecting everyone to do it. It was a shooting star she happened to catch at just the right time.
The "Stranger Things" fam will be back together this weekend (Sunday, Jan. 21) for the Screen Actors Guild Awards. Don't expect them to tell you too much about Season 3 since they apparently don't know what will happen. Harbour did say he thought they'd start filming in March or April, but it wasn't confirmed.
