American actor Joe Keery is best known for playing Steve Harrington in Netflix's hit show, Stranger Things.
Stranger Things' Joe Keery fully established himself as a fan favourite in the last season of the Netflix hit series, working alongside Robin (played by Maya Hawke) at Scoops Ahoy before they find themselves spying on the Russian military crew guarding the opening to the Upside Down.
But who is actor Joe Keery? Here's the lowdown...
Joe grew up in a town called Newburyport in Massachusetts with his four sisters.
He was born on 24 April, 1992 - meaning he's 28 years old.
Keery took to performing at a young age, attending a performing arts camp as a kid, before graduating from DePaul University in 2014, where he studied acting.
Sadly, Joe Keery is off the market.
The Stranger Things star is dating actress and professional kiteboarder, Maika Monroe.
They first made their relationship official when they stepped out on the red carpet together at the Stranger Things season two premiere.
Joe first started acting in food commercials, including ads for KFC and Domino's.
He then bagged a small part in TV show Sirens in 2015, before being cast as Steve Harrington in Stranger Things in 2016.
Keery has also appeared in Molly's Game (2017), After Everything (2018) and Slice (2019).
The actor is also starring in the upcoming 2021 film Free Guy alongside Ryan Reynolds and plays Duke Goolies in Netflix film Death to 2020.
Alongside his acting career, Joe is a guitarist for garage and psycho-rock band, Post Animal.
They released their debut album in October 2015, but as of 2019, Keery is no longer touring with the band.
In summer 2019 he also dropped his first solo tune, 'Roddy'.
Stranger Things returned for a third season on 4th July, 2019 and fans are eagerly awaiting the release of season 4.
The next series is expected to be released in the first half of 2021.
