LOS ANGELES, May 25, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, FaZe Clan Inc. ("FaZe Clan"), the lifestyle and media platform rooted in gaming and youth culture, announced the newest addition to their roster, Grace Van Dien aka FaZe Bluefille [pronounced /bloo · fee/]. Well known for her role as Chrissy Cunningham in season four of Stranger Things, Grace is taking the industry by storm and giving her community a whole new look into her life by channeling her gaming skills and becoming a dedicated Twitch streamer (streaming today on twitch.com/bluefille).
Check out "Meet FaZe Bluefille" and hear from Grace herself on her plans to impact the gaming world and why she's ready for the fight that comes with being a female in a male dominated industry. Grace is also celebrating her announcement with a content piece featuring an anime version of FaZe Bluefille sharing the news with close friends Valkyrae, Pokimane, DisguisedToast, Amouranth, Tarik and Sykkuno - watch HERE.
"Ever since my first meeting with FaZe, we shared the same vision in working together to create lasting change for female gamers in this industry,' said Grace Van Dien aka FaZe Bluefille. "We picked each other for a reason and I'm excited to take on an important role in bringing women to the forefront. This is not just about the announcement of me joining FaZe, it's what we're going to do together."
"I'm stoked to have Grace on board with us, she's been a friend for a little while now and is genuinely one of the kindest people I know," said FaZe Nate Hill. "She's also super talented – people know her as an actress but she's carried me on Valorant more than a few times. Grace adds another element to the team and she's a great fit for the future of FaZe Clan."
Born and raised as a California native, Grace grew up on video games from watching and playing classic shooters as a kid with her Dad, Casper Van Dien. Now, with over 6.2M followers across all platforms and over 106M social views and engagements in 2022, Grace is ready to add herself to the growing list of iconic female gamers and build a fanbase that embraces the fun and feminine side of gaming. She's focused on creating content surrounding her everyday life and VALORANT gameplay with popular streamers including Valkyrae, Pokimane, DisguisedToast, Amouranth and more.
"Grace exemplifies the unwavering personal identity and resilience required to help pave the way in the necessary evolution of female gamers," said FaZe Clan President, Erik Anderson. "We are thrilled to collaborate with her in our ongoing mission to empower women in their roles as gamers, streamers, creators and esports professionals."
FaZe Bluefille joins the ranks of FaZe Clan's female members following FaZe Kalei, a highly-skilled gamer with a provocative personality to match, and most recently, FaZe's Female Valorant team competing in the 2023 Valorant Champions Tour (VCT) Game Changers Series.
