Maya Hawke Feeling “Mixed” on ‘Stranger Things’ Robin Getting A Girlfriend

Maya Hawke

Maya Hawke who plays the iconic queer character Robin in the hit series ‘Stranger Things’ said that she feels a little “mixed” with the idea of Robin getting a girlfriend in the next season of the popular Netflix show.

In an interview with Yahoo Entertainment, when she was asked how she feels about Robin potentially having a girlfriend after the character revealed to have a crush on someone of the same sex, she said that she feels “mixed” about it.

“I feel that that’s a great thing, and I also love characters where their love life is not the center of their existence,” she explained. “That friendship with Steve is so special. And friendships have been carrying me through my life. I think they’re really important, and they deserve their airtime.”

Robin’s character is revealed to be lesbian. However, it was not the original plan. In fact, Robin was supposed to be truly Steve’s love interest, but her character transitioned — interestingly seamlessly — to a lesbian one as the story went on.

In an interview with Wall Street Journal Magazine, Maya said that as they filmed, they “started to feel like she and [Steve] shouldn’t get together and that she’s gay. Even when I go back and watch earlier, it just seems like the most obvious decision ever.”

‘Stranger Things’ Season 5 production is on hold due to the ongoing strike by the Writers Guild of America. The Duffer Brothers, creators and producers of the show, support the strike.
