Robin Buckley is one of the central characters brought up in the third sequence of Stranger Things, who operates at the Scoops Ahoy in the star court Mall with Steve Harrington. In the third season; the directors confirmed that the becoming known story of new character Robin; who after Steve proclaims his affection and love for her at the end of the season; but unfortunately she was out to be a lesbian in stranger things and their relationship didn’t expand romantically.
The character of Robin Buckley is represented by Maya Hawke, who is the daughter of Uma Thurman and Ethan Hawke. Hawke spoke about her fictional character in the stranger things series in an interview that“Throughout filming, we started to feel like she and steve shouldn’t get together, and that she’s gay, even when I go back and watch earlier episodes, it just seems like the most obvious decision ever”. She also shared her experience “sometimes we can have empathy for people on screen that we wouldn’t normally have empathy for in real life and hopes Robin’s story can help people to fall in love with girls who love girls and boys who are boys” – which seems sexuality preference doesn’t matter for her role.
Who is Robin and what is her role in stranger things?
In the third season; robin has been introduced as an alternative girl who works alongside Steve’s quirky co-worker at an ice cream shop. At first, Robin role has been known for a supporting character in the stranger thing and kindnesses about the four kids by entertaining them and giving ice creams. but later with a slight twist in the storyline, she was revealed as the lead role where Robin allied with them and stood against ‘The mind Flayer’ who is the goopy cruel thing with massive spider-like tentacles which is a monstrous new image; at the end of the season Stranger Things.
Everyone hoped that Steve and Robin would make the drama even more interesting when things go well between them, but the script closes the expectation of many fans.
Will she appear again in the fourth instalment?
We foresee in the upcoming season of stranger things; the plot will concentrate more on Robin’s life. In an interview Keery asked to say something about the role Robin Blankley, he said: “to see it handled with such acceptance on both parts, it’s just a really beautiful friendship moment and definitely a growing moment for my character because it is continuing on the path of learning to be a little bit less of a narcissistic; my favourite scene where I’m shedding the skin for robin and bearing my heart on my sleeve and then she does the same for me”.
Hope we will look, Robin Buckley’s role even more in the upcoming seasons of Stranger things.
