Stranger Things' Jamie Campbell Bower has revealed the song that would save him from the grips of the very villain he portrays in the show.
Ever since season four's Vol. 1 dropped on Netflix, fans have been left reeling with the various twists and turns, not to mention the development of some key new characters including the story of how the soul-sucking demon Vecna came to be.
The Stranger Things cast promised the Duffer brothers had gone darker with season four than ever before and they certainly have lived up to this promise with the new supervillain.
Anyone who's watched the latest episodes will know that Vecna thrives on teens who have experienced trauma.
All of his victims have visions of the creepy Creel House clock before they full under his spell completely, culminating in a truly gruesome death.
However, when Max (Sadie Sink) became possessed at the end of episode four, the gang were able to bring her back into the real world by playing her favourite song through her headphones.
And we all know by now that song was Kate Bush's 1995 hit 'Running Up That Hill', which has enjoyed unprecedented success in the US charts thanks to the sci-fi show.
It's a unique plot point, one that has many fans talking about what their 'song' would be.
So when ET Canada were able to catch up with Bower on the red carpet, they took the opportunity to him this very question.
"I feel weird asking this to Vecna, but what would be the song that if someone played for you would pull you out?" asks the host.
Bower smiles before saying, "If I’m being normal, it would be Placebo’s cover of 'Running Up That Hill' by Kate Bush, so I would do that, both of them together – beautiful.
"And if I’m being cheeky and fun, it would be Miley Cyrus' 'Party in the USA'. That’s for the old people who knew me way back when.”
If you're wondering what the latter is in reference to, thankfully a commenter was on hand to explain: "He was obsessed with that song during his filming Twilight, I believe, and even sang it during an interview… he also had a crush on Miley Cyrus lmao."
Others were just there to admire the 33-year-old actor, who's become a bit of a fan favourite amongst the Stranger Things fandom.
"He's so adorable," wrote one, while another said, "He is charming and a great actor."
You can watch the first volume of Stranger Things season four now, with the second volume – comprising two film-length episodes – due to be released on 1 July on Netflix
