Text me (please not just ‘i love stranger things’ but with info about yourself, where are you? what do you do? Instagram handle? How’s money and work in this time? How’s family? Anything else you feel like might be interesting for me to know about you during all this?) 1 917 540 5294. Clearly, in the overwhelming nature of the numbers thing, i won’t get to reply to everyone, and I may not even see yours (apologies in advance if that happens) but I will try to compile some database of fans and friends to see if there are easy ways to connect and help each other in the future. If I am completely overwhelmed by this and it is a disaster I will keep you posted?
Harbour took to Instagram to announce his plan, writing, “Text me (please not just ‘I love Stranger Things’ but with info about yourself. Where are you? What do you do? Instagram handle? How’s money and work in this time? How’s family? Anything else you feel like might be interesting for me to know about you during all this?)”
His phone number is 1-917-540-5294. But he warned fans that due to the sheer amount of texts he was sure to get, he might not get the chance to reply to everyone, and he apologized in advance.
Harbour then added that even if he didn't get around to texting people, he plans on trying to create a database of his fans to make it easier to connect with them in the future.
The actor concluded by saying, “If I am completely overwhelmed by this and it is a disaster I will keep you posted.”
