Even though Barb wasn't a main character in Stranger Things, it's safe to say we all felt for her and what she had to go through.

With bright freckles (which are beautiful btw), plaid shirts and thick-rimmed glasses, she was seen as the outsider of the group, but wait until you see what she looks like in real life.

Shannon Purser who plays Barb is really glam in her normal life and often takes to Instagram to share gorgeous selfies and fab outfit pics.

Even though it looked like she was killed in the first season of the show, it hasn't been confirmed if Barb will be back for season two.


SO much fun working with these two lovely, warm, goofy people. So thankful.

However, rumours started swirling that Shannon might be starring in the Gilmore Girls reboot when she shared a picture of her working alongside Melissa McCarthy.

She captioned the picture: "SO much fun working with these two lovely, warm, goofy people. So thankful."

Will she be Sookie's daughter?! Who knows… 


For those of you who have yet to get stuck into the sci-fest fest that is Stranger Things, Barb was undoubtedly the unsung hero of the latest Netflix smash hit.

The long-suffering friend of the high-achieving Nancy, Barb embodied ALL of us during the most awkward phases of our teenage years.

Ginger, bespetacled, and with all the craic of someone's particularly uptight grandmother, Barb was everyone in secondary school attempting to fit in with the cool kids while doing right by her best friend.

And with the show's creators having been commended for their uncanny portrayal of 1980s America, it seems they really hit the nail on the head when it came to the ill-fated Barb.

Taking to Twitter to acknowledge the all-round appeal of the awkward teen, social media users have shared throwback photos of themselves looking like a stand-in for the flame-haired Barb.

And ladies, they're not wrong…
