Stranger Things star Joseph Quinn reveals his encounter with the American Law at the airport where his fate changed only because of the iconic character he played in the series, Eddie Munson. the star also talks about the break-out stardom he has been subjected to since the release of Stranger Things 4.
Joseph Quinn recalls the treatment he got from the authorities and the unexpected series of questions he had to answer while talking to the Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon.
Stranger Things And Eddie Munson
Stranger Things is an American science-fiction, horror show streaming on Netflix. It was released on July 15, 2016.
The basic storyline of the first season (where it all started) was based on the investigation into the disappearance of a young boy named Will Byers by not only the sheriff and his mother but also his loyal friends.
Seasons 2, 3, and 4, released afterward were continuations of the original story and were very widely accepted and loved by the audience.
Eddie Munson as a character in Stranger Things Season 4 played a very loved role. He not only supported the boys we all love so much but also was the role model to (my personal favorite) Dustin Henderson.
Eddie Munson’s character was fun, playful, freaky, and overall super cool. No wonder the fans loved him so much!
Joseph Quinn’s Experience With The Law And Eddie Munson’s Help
Joseph Quinn, the actor who plays the role of Eddie Munson is who we all may consider a breakout star. A breakout star is someone who recently received attention and fame on a high scale.
With the amount of love Stranger Things: 4 has gotten and the way it blew off the charts with its fame, it is no doubt that Joseph Quinn received a significant amount of help from his character’s stardom.
During an interview with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show, Joseph Quinn recalled the incident that he went through while getting to the show.
“I very nearly didn’t make it, I was taken into, I guess what you could call it more of a dungeon. And I was asked to wait there for about 20 minutes and then I was summoned to this desk where someone asked me, ‘What are you doing in the United States, sir?’ I said, ‘I’m actually here to meet Jimmy Fallon on ‘The Tonight Show.’ And he didn’t believe me.”
According to Munson, after this happened, another officer walked into the room and immediately recognized the star as one of his favorite characters from Stranger Things and exclaimed to his colleagues “Let Eddie go!”
“[o]ne of his colleagues looked over at him, looked at me, and said: ‘Leave Eddie alone!’” he said. “And then [the colleague] said, ‘It’s Eddie from Stranger Things,‘ and he was like, ‘You’re Eddie Munson?’”
“[The man asked], ‘Do you come back next season?’ I was like, ‘I don’t know,’ and he said, ‘You better,’ and gave me my passport.”
Joseph Quinn is enjoying his well-deserved stardom and fans absolutely love it.
Stranger Things 4 is currently streaming on Netflix.
