It looks like Eddie Munson has become such a popular figure after Stranger Things 4 that the character saved the actor from detainment at a U.S. airport.
Quinn made an appearance on “The Tonight Show,” where he told host Jimmy Fallon that he nearly missed the show because he got detained at the airport by U.S. immigration.
“I very nearly didn’t make it,” Quinn said. “I was taken into, I guess what 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.”
Later a second immigration officer recognized Quinn as Eddie Munson and then the actor was allowed to enter the country.
“One of his colleagues looked over at him, looked at me, and said: ‘Leave Eddie alone!'” Quinn said. “And then [the colleague] said, ‘It’s Eddie from “Stranger Things,”‘ and he was like, ‘You’re Eddie Munson?'”
Quinn continued, “[The man asked], ‘Do you come back next season?’ I was like, ‘I don’t know,’ and he said, ‘You better,’ and gave me my passport.”
