*Warning: The following post contains spoilers for Season 4 of stranger things.*
Have you binge-watched volume 1 of stranger things season 4? U.S. too! Of course, with all the twists and turns in Hawkins, Indiana, you may still have questions, including the story of Number One. For everything you need to know about 001, including details about the actor, keep reading!
Who plays 001 on stranger things?
Dr. Martin Brenner, played by the actor Matthew Modine, conducted experiments on a number of children at Hawkins Lab. Henry Creel was the first, which is why Dr. Brenner gave him the “001” on his wrist.
Henry Creel is portrayed by actor Jamie Campbell Bower. You may also recognize Jamie for his roles in The Twilight Saga, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street and The Mortal Instruments: City of Darkness. Actor Raphael Luce played Henry as a child during flashback scenes.
During season 4 of stranger things, Henry was also referred to by the pseudonym Peter Ballard. Peter worked as a nurse for the Children’s Lab and was implanted with a device called Soteria to suppress his powers. As a child and as an adult, Henry has shown the ability to control people’s minds and the powers of telekinesis.
The connection between Number One and Vecna explained:
In short: number one is Vecna.
While Peter Ballard was a nurse at Hawkins Lab, he befriended Eleven, played by the actress Millie Bobby Brown.
However, Peter’s intention to get close to Eleven was actually to combine their powers to wipe out the human race. After Eleven refused, he turned on her. As a result, Peter/Henry was banished to The Upside Down, where he will remain until he transforms into a creature called Vecna.
Vecna finally becomes the main antagonist of season 4 of stranger things. Like Henry in his human form, Vecna possesses the abilities of mind control and telekinesis. His victims include his mother, Alice Creel, and sister Virginia Creel, Dr. Ellis, Two, Eighteen, Chrissy Cunningham, Fred Benson, and Patrick McKinney.
His survivors to this day are his father, Victor Creel, Eleven, Max Mayfield and maybe Nancy Wheeler.
Volume 2 of season 4 of stranger things will be available to stream on Netflix on July 1.
