Quinn’s career as an actor is still in the early stages. In the BBC One series Dickensian, he played Arthur Havisham. The actor also made a cameo in Game of Thrones, but his role in BBC One’s Les Misérables earned him fame.

Before auditioning for Stranger Things, the actor admitted to Inverse that he was a fan. “I saw it and thought it was brilliant, charming, and unique,” the actor said. Quinn sent in two tapes and met with the Duffer brothers as part of his audition for the role of Eddie on Stranger Things Season 4.

He was quickly offered the part, but he was concerned that he was not the best fit. “The fact that they just offered it to me was very disarming, and it made me increasingly paranoid throughout the job that they’d make a mistake,” Quinn said.

Eddie Munson has proven to be a popular addition to the series, with fans adoring him. Quinn’s understated comedic tone and the sweet smile he flashed on the screen were adored by fans.

On set, the actor experienced love, which washed away his concerns about his part.

Participating in a major television show is fraught with risk. Quinn admitted it was difficult for him to adopt an American accent for his character. Instead of turning off the accent, he kept it on, making him sound like a “sociopath.”

Quinn’s concerns about playing Eddie in Season 4 of Stranger Things were unfounded. On set, the actor praises the cast’s friendship and love. “A lovely, warm, crazy environment” was created for filming the season.

The actor explains that he felt a strong bond with the rest of the cast because they had worked together since the beginning and had shared their meteoric rise to fame. Quinn had no trouble fitting into his role and blending in with the rest of the cast. “Life will stay the same, but I will have been in something that people love,” he says, explaining that his fears about joining a grand series are no longer an issue. That’s a beautiful thing you’ve done.”
