NME – It’s roughly two weeks before the release of Stranger Things season four and the cast are chatting to NME via video call, swapping stories for our entertainment. They’re currently picking their fave lines from the new episodes.
“Mine’s: ‘That’s a lot of Ricks’,” says Maya Hawke, who plays ice cream-slinging teen Robin in the hit show. “Great line,” agree co-stars Joe Keery and Natalia Dyer, grinning as they remember the scene.
None of them can, of course, reveal anything more about this multitude of Ricks (spoilers!) – but that just adds to the intrigue. Stranger Things is perhaps the biggest show on TV – and its return the most highly anticipated this year.
n Stranger Things season four, each character has been pushed forward – by the terrifying things they’ve experienced so far, and also just because they’re older and wiser (in most cases).
Hawke points to Robin being a bit braver now. “She used her wicked intelligence to help fight the Russians last season and I think you’ll see her learn a lot about what’s going on in the world of Hawkins,” she says,” and use her brilliant mind to tackle those things as well.”
