‘Stranger Things’ Season 4 has seen Joseph Quinn emerge as the breakout star for his role as Eddie Munson, resident metalhead and Dungeons and Dragons aficionado. The actor recently appeared at the London Film and Comic-Con festival. Stories of his mistreatment and subsequent breaking down in tears, when praised by a fan, have started doing the rounds on the internet.
Amidst the controversy, some American fans of the British actor have rued that the LFCC takes place overseas and they couldn’t see the breakout star from the Netflix series.
This has also led to questions about whether Quinn will be travelling to America anytime soon.
The 29-year-old could visit the US to either attend a ‘Stranger Things’ panel at an event or during the Emmys.
Currently, the Savannah Comic-Con and Fan Expo Boston are two upcoming events in the US, slated to take place on July 30 and August 12, respectively. While ‘Stranger Things’ panels are expected at the events, Quinn is not supposed to be in attendance.
The Primetime Emmy Awards will take place on September 12, and ‘Stranger Things’ has picked up an impressive 13 nominations. However, the actors including Millie Bobby Brown and Sadie Sink, who play Eleven and Max, respectively, have been snubbed. Quinn hasn’t picked up a nomination either, despite fans loving everything the actor put out there.
However, cast members are usually in attendance at the Emmys, so the British actor could fly to the US at that time, to attend the award ceremony that takes place at the Microsoft Center in Los Angeles, California.
Despite the accounts of Quinn facing poor treatment at the LFCC, the event promoters have denied any mismanagement and said that the ‘Stranger Things’ star was neither in any danger from fans nor was he shouted at to hurry things along because the event had been mistakenly overbooked.
