A key cast member of Stranger Things has come out to express her unlikely interest in seeing her character be killed off in the final season of the show.
Speaking in a new interview with Rolling Stone, Maya Hawke reacted to the thoughts of her co-star Millie Bobby Brown, who recently stated that the show’s creators, the Duffer brothers, needed to “kill off” more characters. Adding to the conversation, Hawke responded, “Well, it’s the last season, so people are probably going to die. I would love to die and get my hero’s moment. I’d love to die with honour, as any actor would. But I love the way that the Duffer Brothers love their actors”.
As Hawke hints in the interview, the next season of the popular sci-fi show is highly rumoured to be the very last, with the creators previously suggesting that it could feature no brand new characters.
Continuing in her thoughts about her character, Hawke adds, “The reason that they write so beautifully for me and for everyone else is because they fall in love with their actors and their characters, and they don’t want to kill them. I think that’s a beautiful quality that they have, and I wouldn’t wish it away”.
Whilst season four of the show introduced such actors as Joseph Quinn, Jamie Campbell Bower and Eduardo Franco, the original cast members, including Sadie Sink, Millie Bobby Brown, Finn Wolfhard, Noah Schnapp, David Harbour, and Winona Ryder, remain the most beloved.
