David Harbour took off a significant amount of weight for season 4 of Stranger Things, but the journey wasn’t exactly an easy one.“I lost about 80 pounds from season 3 — I was about 270 [then], and when we shot [season 4​​​​​​] I was around 190,” the actor, 47, told British GQ in an interview published Monday, July 4, adding how intermittent fasting and Pilates helped him shed the weight in eight months.“I don’t think I’ll ever do that again,” the Black Widow star confessed. “I have this Santa Claus movie [Violent Night] coming out for Universal in December and I gained [it all back].

The Newsroom actor wanted to realistically portray Hopper’s expected physique after spending months at the gulag, which was filmed on location at an ex-Nazi prison in Lithuania.In addition to dropping the weight, Harbour tapped into his deepest fears of imprisonment for the most accurate portrayal.“I often have dreams of going to prison,” the New York native told the outlet. “I know Freud has some kind of interpretation of that.
