Why Maya Hawke Would 'Love' to See Her Character Die in Season 5 of ‘Stranger Things’

·2 min read

And what would make her okay with surviving.

Maya Hawke would not only not be devastated if her character were to die before the end of Stranger Things, she may even be manifesting it. 

In a new interview with Rolling Stone to promote her upcoming album, Moss, Hawke spared a few questions for her hit Netflix series and what may be in store for Robin in Season 5

In light of Millie Bobby Brown's recent comments about how the show's creators need to start killing off characters, Hawke all but volunteered as tribute. "I would love to die and get my hero’s moment," she said, acknowledging that people were likely to die in the show's last season. "I’d love to die with honor, as any actor would," she added.

That being said, Hawke admires the love that the Duffer Brothers have for their actors. "The reason that they write so beautifully for me and for everyone else is because they fall in love with their actors and their characters, and they don’t want to kill them." It's a "beautiful quality" that she says she wouldn't want to wish away. 

She may also be open to survival if it resulted in a spin-off for her and co-star Joe Keery, specifically. "Normally I wouldn’t really be a proponent of a spinoff, but if I got to do it with Joe Keery, I would do anything," she admitted. "He’s so funny and wonderful and smart, and he’s got great boundaries. He’s an excellent coworker, and I would do anything with him." (We love to see our love for Steve validated even more!) 

So no matter what fate has in store for Robin, Hawke's excited for whatever comes next, though it'll be some time before we find out just what that is.
