SPOILER ALERT: This article discusses the end of Season 4 of Stranger Things.
Stranger Things has proven very successful at turning its actors into household names. Everyone seems to know Millie Bobby Brown’s character Eleven, or Joe Keery’s Steve in an instant.
However, the most recent season of Stranger Things has made a new favorite character in Eddie Munson played by Joseph Quinn. The leader of the Hellfire Club became a fan favorite, in no small part due to Quinn’s own charisma.
The British actor even made it to American talk shows, though he almost didn’t.

As Quinn tells Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show:
“I was held up at immigration yesterday!”
Quinn explains he was taken to secondary inspection at the U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
“I was taken into, I guess you could call it more of a dungeon.”
“And I was asked to wait there for about 20 minutes and then I was summoned to this desk where someone asked me, ‘What are you doing in the United States, sir?’”
“I said, ‘I'm actually here to meet Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show.’ And he didn't believe me.”
Luckily, another agent took one look at Quinn and saved the situation.
He told his fellow agent:
“Leave Eddie alone!”
The agent holding Quinn was so surprised and had to ask if Quinn was really Eddie Munson on Stranger Things. He then asked if Quinn would be coming back for season 5.
Munson replied that he wasn’t sure, and the agent said:
And returned the passport.
Quinn’s character was so beloved, but in the end, Eddie Munson tragically lost his life, leading a lot of people to question how or if he’d be able to come back for season 5.
That hasn’t stopped fans from appreciating everything Quinn gave them in the character, even when he finds himself in a less than favorable position.
They want to bring Eddie Munson back.
Later in the segment, Quinn shows off his accent chops by performing one of Eddie’s monologues, switching out his accent to Scottish, Liverpudlian, Australian, and even a New York accent.
He also gave Jimmy Fallon his own Hellfire Club shirt and made him an honorary member.
