- At the end of Stranger Things 3 Eleven reads a letter from Hopper.
- Hopper, who is probably dead, had written about how much he loves Eleven.
- Actress Millie Bobby Brown opened for Entertainment Weekly about how she prepared herself for the scene.
One of the most emotional moments of Stranger Things 3 came towards the end of the season. After Hopper dies (although some fans believe he actually lives), Joyce, Will, and Eleven decide to leave Hawkins. As Eleven packs his things, he finds a letter he wrote to her earlier, and let's just say that we cried almost as hard as Eleven did when she read the letter.
It had to have been a pretty emotional scene to act and most actors had been preparing for a while to get all the nuances out. But as Gizmodo reports, Millie stated to Bobby Brown that there was no preparation at all. The actress told Entertainment Weekly that she did not rehearse the scene and her feelings were all real:
"They had recorded David [Harbour] and they played it out loud, I did not have it I wanted I did not want to hear about it, I did not want to rehearse anything, I just wanted to put a camera on me and find out how I react and how I react, that was pure desolation sadness and a desperate child who just lost her father It was definitely a rough feeling, especially because David Harbor and I are very close to each other, he is just one of the greatest men I believe, something I admire about David He respects girls and Women so much … It felt so … I'm so gutted and I was like, "Oh, my god, that's awful." So the emotions in this scene were certainly great. "
And if you're n Brown later published an Instagram photo with a drawing of her and Harbor as Eleven and Hopper. In the drawing, Hopper lovingly puts his hat on Elfens head.
But rather than saddening the post, Harbor funnyly commented "3 inches … Please …", a recall to Hopper, in which Elf and Mike were asked to keep the bedroom door open at least three inches open they are together. Ah, fathers. Always the same, even if they are detained in a Russian prison.
