This is one of very few shows that I've ever binge-watched, but I COULD NOT STOP WATCHING the "Haunting of Hill House!" Sooo good. Yes, it's spooky, and honestly, I wouldn't have watched it if my sister had not told me a main character was from Heber Springs. (Kinda my second home growing up and my sister and her family live there now.) My friend and THV11 anchor Laura Monteverdi interviewed Paxton Singleton on THV11 This Morning. See the interview here. (Make sure you check out the trailer below, too.)
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."
