Stranger Things season 4, volume 1 has a number of new characters who have their unique stories. Eddie Munson, portrayed by Joseph Quinn, is one of the newly introduced characters. Munson seemed like a scary freak when we first saw him trying to intimidate students with his Hellfire Club charms. However, we learn more about the character but only perhaps 1% of what Quinn already knows. So, how did the actor portray such a layered character? Well, certainly there was training involved.

Quinn thinks getting to play Munson was “… a real lottery ticket,”

How Quinn bagged the role of Eddie Munson makes for an interesting tale. He recalls how he recorded two videos from his home and sent them to The Duffer Brothers. They watched both the tapes and gave Joseph this part. Knowing the fact that he got the job offer from the brothers on the basis of those tapes seemed crazy to him, as that never happened to him before.

Now that he has got the part of Eddie Munson in Stranger Things, he wanted to make this character more than it could be. He wanted to give life to the character by putting his own creativity into it. So, he started working on it and made some changes in his lifestyle, and started to embody the character. What kind of changes are we talking about?

Did Joseph Quinn really stop eating pizza and drinking beer? Why?

As mentioned earlier, it really surprised Joseph when he got the job and he wanted to justify the character as he understood. So he relied on the characterization of his character. This was when he found that the writers have written him brilliantly. Everything was there on the paper about the character.

He loved how Eddie Munson is introduced, and how the story explores his character. He felt Eddie to be so empathetic and Joseph wanted to catch the essence of the character, not only emotionally but also physically. Joseph says he dedicatedly worked for it to uphold his character and feel him. “I wanted to look younger, so I stopped eating pizza and drinking beer. (Laughs.) Trying to lose some weight to roll back the years,” admitted Joseph.

He also says that it is true that Eddie appears a little fearful in the beginning. Eddie has this obvious kind of mask of confidence. He skillfully shields his insecurities and forces himself on people. Joseph shares, “I think you only really know who you are under pressure, so when he’s under pressure he’s very traumatized and vulnerable.” Quinn also adds how eventually, Munson becomes a part of the gang and from there, he proves himself.

Quinn’s deep understanding of the character and his hard work to portray him on screen accurately are absolutely praiseworthy. His own experience in high school with quiet non-conformist older boys also helped him.

Now, we understand why Eddie became popular and the favorite of so many viewers. Tell us about your view of Eddie Munson in Stranger Things season 4. What do you think will happen with him in volume 2?

Netizens Pour Appreciation Posts for Netflix Editing Elliot Page’s Name in the Credits

#Netizens #Pour #Appreciation #Posts #Netflix #Editing #Elliot #Pages #Credits

News of The Umbrella Academy incorporating Elliot Page’s transition into the series was already well known. But the streamer has taken a step further to edit the actor’s name in the previous seasons of the show. Elliot Page plays an integral part in the Netflix series about Superhero siblings banding together to avert catastrophes. After a long gap, the dysfunctional superhero family has finally returned to the screens to answer the questions it left in the viewers’ minds back in season 2. 

Netflix edited the actor’s new name Elliot Page in the credits scene for the past two seasons 

After starring in nearly two seasons of the show, the actor came out as trans in 2020. As a kind gesture to the actor, the writers of The Umbrella Academy wrote his transition in his onscreen character as well. The new season introduces us to a newly transitioned Viktor Hargreeves. However, few viewers noticed the changes Netflix made in the previous seasons after the actor came out. The credits in the previous seasons now display his new name, Elliot Page. The streamer has removed the dead name, Ellen Page. 

They took to Twitter to appreciate Netflix’s touching gesture.

The Umbrella Academy deftly handled Page’s transition 

Page’s character comes out as a trans in episode 2 of the third season of The Umbrella Academy. Instead of making it the central narrative, Steve Blackman, the creator, wanted to create a real and sensitive moment in the show. 

Steve had collaborated with trans author and writer Thomas McBee to flesh out the character.

We just wanted to be a beautiful moment that was sensitive, that was real and you know, in a world where there’s so much, you know, anti-trans (rhetoric) that we really wanted to tell a pro-Trans story, but it was totally collaborative right through,said Steve. 

Page, while appearing on Late Night With Seth Myers, also mentioned that he was actively involved in the process as well.

Stranger Things’ Vecna Lays Down Yet Another Life, Following Chris Evans and His Emotional Goodbye to His “Pal”

#Stranger #Vecna #Lays #Life #Chris #Evans #Emotional #Goodbye #Pal

Vecna isn’t stopping until he takes everyone, even his iPhone. We are guessing that Stranger Things season 4 villain Vecna just got tired of going after everyone in the Upside Down and asking them: “Will you join me?” So this time he sent his phone to the afterlife.

This season Stranger Things introduced Vecna, the most terrifying villain of all time. The humanoid is quite different from the other monsters that visited Hawkins. He is far more powerful and has telekinetic powers. He loves chasing after victims that have experienced trauma in their past. His trademark killing style involves showing them nightmares and gouging out their eyes. He also keeps a collection of his prized souls in his hellscape. And now his phone joined the souls.

Stranger Things Vecna actor Jamie Campbell Bower tweets about his phone’s demise 

Apparently, Jamie Campbell was using an iPhone 6s until it died recently some three weeks ago. His iPhone 6s also joined Vecna’s corpse collection in the process. He mentioned his grief over his dead phone in a reply to Chris Evans’ tweet. Interestingly, the Captain America actor wrote a farewell note to his old iPhone! In it, he wrote he particularly won’t miss his phone’s battery issues and low-quality pictures! It’s hilarious how the two actors are turning this into a sob story.

Jamie will reprise his role as Vecna in Stranger Things in the upcoming Volume 2. Some fans also theorized that he will continue to terrorize Hawkins even in season 5. Until now, the show hasn’t revealed his agenda. But inferring from his speech to young Eleven, Vecna may want to strike a balance in the world. Vecna continues to track Eleven and her friends in the new trailer. In a voiceover, he tells Eleven that her friends have lost.

On the other hand, the megastar, Chris Evans takes a detour in the Russo Brothers’ The Gray Man. He is playing a psychopath working for the CIA. Evans is sent on a mission to track down Ryan Gosling’s Courtland Gentry or Sierra Six. The Russos have set up a thrilling premise for a cat and mouse chase story with stylized action and jokes peppered in. 

Will you tune into Netflix to catch Volume 2 on July 1?
