Eduardo Franco is one of the new characters starring in season 4 of the television series “Stranger Things”. The Mexican-American actor plays the role of Argyle, Jonathan's best friend in California.
In the well-known fiction, Franco has a van and is in charge of delivering pizzas. His character is peculiar, funny, with a mane worthy of envy and is characterized by being, usually, high.
In an interview he recently gave to the Remezcla website, Franco was honored and proud because his character gives visibility to the Latino community in such a renowned series as Stranger Things. "We're here, man," he said about his performance in the fourth season, Volume 1, of the production that recently premiered on the Netflix streaming platform.
The 27-year-old Latino actor participated in several projects on the small and big screen. He has been cast in series like “The Skinny”, “You're the Worst”, “Gamer's Guide to Pretty Much Everything”, “Adam Ruins Everything”, “Good game”, “Idiotsitter”, and “American Vandal” . He also acted in the movies "Booksmart," "The Package" and "The Binge," and appeared in TV commercials for brands like Samsung.
Eduardo Franco was born in Arizona into a working-class family of Mexican origin. He started his career at 16 years old. He always remembers that his beginnings in the entertainment industry, in Los Angeles, have not been easy due to his limited financial resources. He assures, however, that the unconditional support of his parents has been fundamental in gaining his space as a Latino actor in Hollywood. “When all you have is, and I mean it, just love and support — meaning getting a ‘Hey mijo, I love you! Good luck out there!’ — it’s far more rewarding,” he noted in an interview a couple of years ago.
