LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - A new spooky horror series on Netflix has caught the eye of many this year. But some in central Arkansas are watching for a piece of home on their screens.
A Heber Springs native, Paxton Singleton stars in the show as young Steven. He is in the flashback scenes of the show.
That may sound like a small part, but it's not. He is a main cast member. He said that horror scares him as well.
"I'm a scaredy cat as well," Singleton said. "I close my eyes, but I did watch the whole thing."
He did warn that after meeting him, some of the scares may be mitigated.
"Honestly, a lot of people have said, 'well, I know you Paxton and this is not as scary,'" Singleton said.
He did mention that watching the ghosts get makeup done gave was a little spooky, as well.
Singleton's father on the show, Henry Thomas, was also a child actor most known for playing Elliott in "E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial."
Singleton will appear in "The Rookie" on ABC and is in a movie to be released next year, "Alice Fades Away."
