Maya Hawke, who plays Robin Buckley in Stranger Things, has mixed feelings about her character potentially having a girlfriend in season 5. In an interview with NME, Hawke said that she would be “excited” to see Robin in a relationship, but she also wants to make sure that the relationship is authentic and well-developed.
“I would be excited to see Robin with a girlfriend,” Hawke said. “But I also want to make sure that it’s not just a token thing, or that it’s not just done for the sake of being woke. I want to make sure that it’s meaningful and that it’s something that feels organic to the character.”
Hawke also said that she is “proud” of the way that Stranger Things has portrayed LGBTQ+ characters in the past. “I think Stranger Things has done a really good job of representing queer characters in a way that feels authentic and real,” she said. “I think it’s important to show that queer people can be just as complex and interesting as anyone else.”
Ultimately, Hawke said that she is “up for whatever” the Stranger Things writers decide to do with Robin’s character in season 5. “I trust them to do what’s best for the story,” she said. “I’m just excited to see what happens.”
