Stranger Things‘ David Harbour might be familiar with the upside-down, but coming to India felt like being on Mars to him. The actor had visited the country a few years back and revealed in a recent interview that India felt like a place with a unique character and something he had ‘never experienced’ before.

Harbour told  Pinkvilla, “I mean, all of India was a highlight for me. I’ve never been to a country like that. It felt like… so often, we travel in the western world and it feels, there are different tenets of a country, but it really felt like a… like being on Mars. People there are so beautiful. The hearts are so open, the way… they call it the land of light, India, right? And I found that it had such a unique character. I’d never experienced anything like it.”

“I absolutely adored India and I was up North, on the river [Ganga], and just seeing that river flow through was so stunning. I mean, to see the green waters up North, flowing through, and there were huge statues of, I think it was Vishnu. It’s just a magical, magical land. I can’t wait to go back. Love, I love India, love India,” he further added.

Stranger Things‘ David Harbour had visited India back in 2019 and shared a few pictures from his visit on social media as well. He wrote a huge caption along with his post, penning how his experience was. He said, “NDIA! INDIA!! You are like being on Mars, if Mars were full of open-hearted, deep, rich, expansive, joyful people at every turn. Fire burns brighter there. The river Ganges teams with life and death. It is primal and real, a universe unto itself.”
