Stranger Things stars Maya Hawke and Millie Bobby Brown both reckon some characters need 'killing off' from the hit Netflix series.

Hawke, who joined Bobby Brown on season three, was asked by Vanity Fair if Eddie Munson deserved to die.

The 24-year-old actor responded: "I don’t think he should’ve died, but I do think the show has too many characters."

Earlier this month, Hawke also told Rolling Stone: “Well, it’s the last season, so people are probably going to die.

“I would love to die and get my hero’s moment. I’d love to die with honour, as any actor would.

“But I love the way that the Duffer Brothers love 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.

“I think that’s a beautiful quality that they have, and I wouldn’t wish it away.”

Bobby Brown also echoed a similar sentiment on the red carpet of the Stranger Things 4 premiere.

In a tongue and cheek way, she said: "There were like 50 of us.

"I was like, ‘You need to start killing people off.’

"The Duffer brothers are two sensitive Sallies that don’t want to kill anyone off. We need to be Game of Thrones."

Despite becoming one of the best payed actors in Hollywood, Bobby Brown has also spoken candidly about the difficulties she's faced during her journey to fame.

The actor told Allure that she had to go to therapy over online bullying. She said: "It's really hard to be hated on when you don't know who you are yet.

"So it's like, 'What do they hate about me? 'Cause I don't know who I am.'

"It’s almost like, ‘Okay, I’m going to try being this today.’ [And then they say], ‘Oh, no, I hate that.’ ‘Okay. Forget that. I’m going to try being this today.’ ‘Oh, my God! I hate when you do that’.

"Then you just start shutting down because you’re like, ‘Who am I meant to be? Who do they need me to be for them?’

"Then I started to grow more, and my family and friends really helped. It helped to be able to understand that I don’t need to be anything they said that I need to be. I just have to develop within myself. That’s what I did.”

However, Bobby Brown acknowledged that she was still working on developing herself, saying: "That’s what I’m doing."
