Last weekend, the 4th season of Netflix’s hit sci-fi series Stranger Things was released and features a few new characters. One of the new guys of the show (which takes place during the 1980s) is metalhead Eddie Munson, head of the Hellfire Club at Hawkins High. Actor Joe Quinn captures the rebellious, rock ‘n’ roll loving character seamlessly, but it wasn’t without practice.

Quinn says he got into character by “listen[ing] to a lot of heavy metal. That was my…God, it’s impossible to not sound pretentious when you say it, but, yeah, that was my way in.”

Quinn didn’t have to change himself completely as he has been playing guitar since he was 7-years-old. “That was very lucky because those scripts came out, I think, at some point in the pandemic. I did start practicing pretty furiously,” Quinn says.

Stranger Things 4 can now be streamed on Netflix. Watch the trailer here:
