David Harbour: ‘Stranger Things third season is most emotional yet’

David Harbour has teased fans with details about the “unexpected” upcoming third season of Stranger Things.
The 44-year-old plays Chief of Police Jim Hopper in the hit Netflix science fiction drama series, and revealed during a panel discussion at the 2019 MCM Comic Con in London over the weekend (24-26May19) that his character’s relationship with daughter Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) is central to the season’s plot development.
“Millie is growing up and I think that’s the terrifying thing for Hopper. He doesn’t like the idea of his baby daughter hanging out with boys,” he said. “So the season starts with him a little bit uncomfortable. His daughter is becoming a teenager and beginning to find herself, so that’s scarier for Hopper than any Demogorgon creature that he’s going to have to deal with.”
The star went on to tease the season finale as a particularly poignant moment, and admitted the scenes were emotional to shoot.
“You get to see a lot of that throughout the season and it’s very unexpected what happens in the end and it’s very, very moving,” David added. “I think episode eight is the most moving thing we’ve ever shot.”
Season three of Stranger Things will drop on Netflix on 04 July (19), America’s Independence Day.
