“I was pissed. I read the script and I was like, ‘What, how is this even possible? Why are they moving away?'” she recounted.
She went on to add that the departure struck a nerve as it made the adolescent stars of the show ponder how they would feel when the show finally wrapped.
“I don’t know, I just felt really against it. When we were filming it, all of us kids said to each other, ‘So how are we all going to cry?’ Because we don’t really cry in front of each other very often,” she went on.
“I usually am the one who’s crying in every single scene and the kids have to deal with me listening to (sad) music and they’re like, ‘Oh God.'”
“I thought, ‘Are we all going to go off and listen to music?’ And then one of the kids was like, ‘Imagine if we have to do this for real one day’. And we were like, ‘What do you mean?’
“And they were like, ‘What if, when Stranger Things is over, we’ll all have to say goodbye to each other and like this is it.'”
“And we all started crying and then they rolled camera and said action. And that was it. We all started saying goodbye to each other. We felt too real.”
