Millie Bobby Brown had a playful reaction to German Stranger Things fans, after learning that many of them hate Finn Wolfhard’s character, Mike Wheeler.
Per The Independent, during an appearance at a fan Q&A panel held as part of German Comic Con, Brown, who plays Eleven — Mike’s love interest and protagonist in the show — was shocked to discover a surprising dislike of Wolfhard’s character. One fan quizzed her about the up-and-down relationship between Eleven and Mike in season four, to which she replied, “I mean, do you like him?”
When the audience member responded that they did not, she said, “What?! You don’t like Mike? In Germany, you guys don’t like Mike?”
The crowd then seemed to largely share the same reply: “No.”
“In America, people love Mike,” the British actress said. “Can somebody tell me why they don’t like Mike? What’s wrong with him? He’s not a good boyfriend? Is that it?”
One audience member claimed that the character had been a bad friend. “Oh, he’s not a good friend?” Brown asked, then said, “Oh that’s why. Okay. There’s not much I can say about that, although Finn, he’s a great friend. He’s like the bestest friend.”
Season 4 of Stranger Things is currently streaming on Netflix. The fifth and final season will start development this August, Variety reported, with show creators the Duffer brothers having Season 5 pretty much mapped out.
