What fans know about Stranger Things Season 4 actor Joseph Quinn

Quinn is a 29-year-old actor who was born and raised in England. He attended the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art and graduated in 2015. He has played a soldier named Koner in the season 7 episode The spoils of war in the HBO hit Game of Thrones. Besides this, he plays in BBC one series Dickensian as Arthur Havisham which is one of his best works.

Joseph has opened up about his favorite movies and series. He once told glass magazine during an interview that he is a big fan of Lord of The Rings. He expressed he would want to play all of the characters of LOD. When asked by The Rakish Gent what is the role he’d wish he played, he talked about Roman Roy from Succession.


“I don’t know if there is one role in particular but in Succession, Kieran Culkin’s character is a goldmine and he just delivers every line and knocks it out of the park,” he said. “His sense of humor and lightness of touch with that character is enviable. But I think these iconic roles are so defined by the actors that played them it’s hard to imagine anyone else playing them.”

Joseph Quinn wanted to do justice to the character Eddie Munson

Quinn in an interview with Collider, in which he had to stick to spoiler-free policies for the Stranger Things press opened up about how daunting it was to join.

“There’s a lot of devotion towards this show, and you don’t want to ruin it,” he said. “So it’s been an amazing experience. It’s been surreal to be involved in something like this. It’s just a huge honor, and to be able to participate in this season, and be amongst everyone trying to pull it off, it’s a treat.”


Quinn is not into Social Media

The Stranger Things star is not a big fan of social media, for all those looking him up on Instagram. One will only find fan pages of Quinn as she had deleted his Instagram back in 2017, as he spent and wasted a lot of time. He recently created a new Instagram handle, where the first post was a poster of Stranger Things season 4. Fans are hoping he will share his life and work on the same.
