While the inter-dimensional monster was vanquished at the end of the third season of “Stranger Things”, the season finale also brought about the presumed death of Sheriff Hopper (David Harbour) and the revelation that Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) would be moving away from Hawkins.
Many fans of the supernatural Netflix hit likely screamed “Noooo!” at the prospect of the gang being busted up, and Brown admits that she had the same reaction.
“I was p***ed!” the 15-year-old actress declared in an interview with Elle.
“I read the script and I was like, ‘What, how is this even possible? Why are they moving away?’ They were like ‘Didn’t you read episode 3?’ And I was like, ‘Oh yeah.’ Because Joyce said she wanted to move away from Hawkins. I don’t know, I just felt really against it,” she told the magazine.
“When we were filming it, all of us kids said to each other, ‘So how are we all going to cry?’ Because we don’t really cry in front of each other very often,” she continued. “I usually am the one who’s crying in every single scene and the kids have to deal with me listening to [sad] music and they’re like, ‘Oh God.’ I thought, ‘Are we all going to go off and listen to music?’”
However, one of her co-stars helped her to put things into perspective.
“And then one of the kids was like, ‘Imagine if we have to do this for real one day.’ And we were like, ‘What do you mean?’ And they were like, ‘What if, when ‘Stranger Things’ is over, we’ll all have to say goodbye to each other and like this is it.’ And we all started crying and then they rolled camera and said action. And that was it,” she explained. “We all started saying goodbye to each other. We felt too real.”
While details are sparse about the fourth season of “Stranger Things”, fans can see star David Harbour when he makes his debut hosting “Saturday Night Live”, airing Saturday, Oct. 13 at 8:30 p.m. PT/11:30 p.m. ET on Global.
