Maya Hawk would have agreed to a Stranger Things spin-off on one condition

In an interview with Rolling StonesMaya Hawke has admitted that she wished her Stranger Things character had died after a great act of heroism. She said, “I would love to die and have my hero moment. I would like to die with honor, like any actor. But I love how the Duffer Brothers love their actors. The reason they write so beautifully for me and everyone else is because they fall in love with their actors and their characters and don’t want to kill them. I think that’s a great quality they have and I wouldn’t want it to go away.”

In response, the interviewer insisted that she must survive because it could potentially lead to a Robin Buckley spin-off. To which Hawke responded, “Normally I wouldn’t be a supporter of a spin-off, but if I had to do it with Joe Keery, I would do anything. He’s so funny and wonderful and smart and has big boundaries. … He is a great employee and I will do anything with him.”

This is in fairly good agreement with public opinion (as noted in articles like this one from Botanist) that Steve Harrington and Robin Buckley’s friendship is one of the best aspects of the Netflix series. It’s exciting and fun, and something about it works perfectly. It’s nice to know that performers can also feel that chemistry and enjoy the art it creates.
