Joseph Quinn, the breakthrough star of the Netflix series “Stranger Things,” recently revealed that he almost didn’t make his talk show debut on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” because he was held at the airport when attempting to enter the United States.
Please make room for Eddie Munson! On July 25, Joseph Quinn had his very first appearance on a talk show; nevertheless, he was very close to missing his opportunity to appear on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon since he was late getting there.
The actor, who is 29 years old and stars in the Netflix series Stranger Things, revealed to Jimmy Fallon that he had to go through a secondary examination after coming into the United States because he had been held by Immigration.
Joseph started his explanation by saying, “Yesterday, I was detained at Immigration.” It was more of a dungeon than anything else, which I suppose is what you could call it. I was brought inside it. And when I was there, I was instructed to wait for around twenty minutes.
Then I was called to this desk, where I was questioned about why I was in the United States by a person who said, “What are you doing here, sir?” I responded by saying, “Well, the reason I’m here is really to meet Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show.”
What did Joseph Quinn share about his return to Stranger Things?
According to Joseph, the officer didn’t believe him at all. “And then one of his coworkers glanced my way, turned at him, and said, ‘Leave Eddie alone.'” The officer was unfamiliar with Joseph’s identity. To have such gall!
His coworker brought him up to speed. “He’s like, ‘It’s Eddie from Stranger Things,'” we heard him say. He’s like, ‘You’re Eddie Munson?’ And my response was, ‘Well, kind of.’ He asked me something along the lines of, “Do you coming back next season?” I responded by saying, “Um, I’m not sure.”
And then he said something along the lines of, ‘You better,’ and handed me the passport. To our great relief, everything that Joseph packed, including the Hellfire Club T-shirt that he brought for Jimmy, was allowed to pass through Customs.
As soon as the fourth season of Stranger Things was released, Joseph became an overnight star. Eddie Munson, the character he plays on the show Stranger Things, has quickly become one of the show’s fan favorites.
Protecting Eddie after he was wrongfully accused of killing Chrissy and other youths in town was an essential part of the Hawkins tale.
In the last episode of season 4, Eddie, sadly, made the ultimate sacrifice by killing himself. Eddie made up his mind to stay away from the real world with Dustin after they rocked out to Metallica’s “Master of Puppets” to divert the attention of the demo bats. He remained in the Upside Down to battle the demon bats, but he ultimately succumbed to his injuries and died in Dustin’s arms.
Even though the Duffer Brothers have said that Eddie has passed away, there are still many fans who believe that Eddie will make a comeback in the fifth and final season. Who’s heard of the Kas theory? The fourth season of Stranger Things is now available to view on Netflix.
