A Stranger Things fan has shared the moment they left actor Joseph Quinn emotional after she told him how much she loved his work.
It goes without saying that Jospeh Quinn has quickly become a fan favourite after his breakout performance as Eddie Munson, the non-conformist metalhead in Netflix's hit series.
But it seems for Quinn his newly-found popularity hasn't quite sunk in yet, as he was reduced to tears by a fan who told the actor just how much she loved him.
During an appearance at Showmasters Comic Con in the UK, Quinn was left speechless by the kind words of 33-year old Kimberley Burrows. You can see that moment in the video below.
Earlier this week, Burrows shared the video across social media platforms including TikTok and Twitter.
In the video, Burrows can be heard thanking the actor who appears emotional as he wipes away tears before jokingly saying 'why'd you do that?' before going on to add that he 'never expected this in his career ever.'
Burrows who became fully blind a few years ago, felt that Quinn's Eddie Munson helped her cope with the aftermath of losing her sight.
In response to the viral video, Burrows said: "I think the main message of all of this is that just being kind to somebody can really make a huge difference.
"And that’s really what’s come out this year, you know, it’s so easy to be critical of others.
"And it takes huge courage to be nice to someone and appreciate them.”
Speaking to TODAY, Burrows detailed how Eddie Munson helped her feel represented: "We live in a world that isn’t very inclusive.
"I attend a lot of events, or I go to a lot of places, and disabled people are often an afterthought, and we are made to feel like a burden for requesting access to something,
“So I could understand those qualities within Eddie representing the outsider.”
Burrows was born with congenital cataracts and has always been visually impaired.
Growing up, she only had a small window of visualisation in her left eye, before her retina detached and she became completely blind in 2018.
The keen fan travelled nearly four hours to attend the meet and greet with Quinn last Saturday, a day before the viral moment was captured.
During the meet and greet Quinn re-enacted the "Master of Puppets" scene with Burrows and her guide dog Tami.

He was so sweet and held my hand between our photos.
This is what I referenced when I talked to him during the Q&A session thanking him for taking the time with his fans. 🥰 pic.twitter.com/o3mKxM65Ee
Describing the meet and greet she said: "He held my hands while we were kind of waiting for everything to get sorted out. And then I was going to wait, but he helped me.
"He must have held (my hand) for a couple of minutes, and that was really comforting for me to know that he was there and not just kind of a presence somewhere floating.
"It was more than I could have expected, really. He was just so sweet."
