I didn't even know that was going to happen and then we were shooting and the director was like ‘This should happen’ and I'm like ‘Alright.’” This past weekend, Grande and Miller took the stage at the Nikon Theater at Jones Beach on Long Island, New York, to perform a particularly flirty set at the Billboard Hot 100 Music Festival.They danced closely together and gazed into each other’s eyes during their number.
According to TMZ, Grande, who was dressed casually in a black hoodie with her hair thrown up in a bun, spent much of the evening sitting in her rumored beau’s lap.
In between bites, the pair were photographed locking lips.
Is it your given name, or is that a professional name? Finn’s not short for anything; it’s just Finn Wolfhard.
And then Wolfhard means, I think, heart of the wolf in German. And then I go to Catholic school, which is really weird. My dad is a screenwriter, so he always used to watch movies for inspiration when I was a baby.
You said your dad’s a screenwriter — has he written anything I would know? Matt and Ross really liked it, and they invited me for a Skype call. Did you get introduced to that music by your parents?
No, he has like four scripts that he’s been trying to make. We didn’t even talk about work; it wasn’t even about the part or anything. My dad and my mom used to play that kind of music in the car when I was a baby. But then Shawn was like, “Mark can you turn your head to the left? Oh yeah, they wanted to go as old-school as possible.
He’s had deals that have gone through and then they’ve dropped out. We were talking about movies the entire time, which was a good sign for me from the beginning.

It is not going to be set in the ‘50s, how it’s set in the book; it’s going to be set in the ‘80s.

There’s some CG for the green screens and stuff, but when you see cuts happening and shots being fired and people getting blood on each other, that’s all practical.
It’s insanely hard for my dad — my dad’s over there laughing. Finn’s dad, briefly interjecting: I’m honestly not riding his coattails. Then on the side they were like, “Oh yeah, by the way: Come to L. A., and I did one audition before I met Millie [Bobby Brown], Caleb [Mc Laughlin], and Gaten [Matarazzo]. I was really on hold for it, and then finally I got the call from Matt — he was in the Atlanta airport and he was trying to track me down, because I was asleep upstairs. He was telling me to get out of bed — you’re going to be in a Netflix show. Also, a lot of the reason was — this is a cheat, but it’s awesome — me, Matt, and Ross have so many similarities. I’m Canadian, and she’s English, and those are the two combinations of nice people, which is immediately a good chemistry. I would also search the web: You know how one video leads to another leads to another? A Beatles song led to a Led Zeppelin song, and then a Led Zeppelin song led to the Rolling Stones, you know. Do you feel like working on Stranger Things prepared you for this movie, since it’s based on a Stephen King book that came out in the ‘80s? Obviously there are some scary things that happen in Stranger Things, and It is scary as well. Are you finding it easier to play those moments of horror having done it in before?
