The first volume of Stranger Things Season 4 has officially been released, and there are many new characters to get to know. Dmitri Antonov, also known as Enzo, the Russian jail guard who joins forces with Hopper, is one of these fresh faces. The guard may seem somewhat familar to some viewers, but where have they seen him before? The actor who played Enzo in Stranger Things is profiled here.
Enzo is portrayed by Thomas Wlaschiha in “Stranger Things.”
Dmitri “Enzo” Antonov, “a brilliant and charming Russian jail guard,” would be portrayed by German actor Thomas Wlaschiha, according to a Stranger Things tweet from the year 2020. Wlaschiha travelled to the United States at the age of 17 to pursue a career in acting. She was born in Dohna, Dresden, East Germany. Wlaschiha studied theatre in Massachusetts and picked up English, according to IMDb. He is fluent in Russian, Italian, and French (which has come in handy for Stranger Things).
Wlaschiha has appeared in a number of foreign film and television productions. He is best known in the US, though, for his role as Jaqen H’ghar in Game of Thrones. Fans may remember that Jaqen belonged to the Faceless Men, a team of highly trained killers. He was in charge of teaching Arya (Maisie Williams) how to kill for herself.

Before Game of Thrones, I had been engaged in this for twenty years. I’ve always been fortunate to be able to support myself only via acting, so I never needed to get a second job,” Wlaschiha said to Metro Style in 2018. “I consider myself to be very fortunate, although of course, after Game of Thrones, things have altered somewhat. It made it much simpler for me to land a role and to be given consideration for additional roles. One of the best presents I received from Game of Thrones was that.
Wlaschiha also starred as Sebastian Berger in the NBC action-thriller series Crossing Lines in addition to Game of Thrones. In a few Jack Ryan episodes, he also made an appearance. The actor is most recognised for his roles as Prince Albert in the 2014 film Mr. Turner and Albrecht in the 2011 film Resistance.

How does Enzo do in “Stranger Things”?
Jim Hopper (David Harbour) is imprisoned in a Russian jail in the new season of Stranger Things, where he is frequently abused and made to work on a railroad. Fortunately, he discovers Dmitri, who accepts to assist Hopper get back together with Joyce Byers (Winona Ryder) in exchange for $40,000 from him. Dmitri uses the codename Enzo to get in touch with Joyce, a homage to the eatery where Hopper and Joyce previously went on a date. In order to pick up Hopper following his prison break, Dmitri arranges for a pilot named Yuri (Nikola Djuricko) to fly Joyce, Murray (Brett Gelman), and the money to Russia.
Hopper and Dmitri wind up in a Russian jail cell after Yuri betrays Dmitri and exposes his double-cross. Dmitri and Hopper must cooperate to survive because they are prisoners. In an effort to feed and amuse the Demogorgon, the Russian guards pit them and other inmates against it. Fortunately, Murray and Joyce succeed in getting into the facility and joining the battle. Finally, Murray, Dmitri, Hopper, and Joyce manage to flee the mayhem. The last remaining query is if Dmitri “Enzo” Antonov will appear more frequently in Stranger Things 4 Vol. 2.
