Stranger Things' Charlie Heaton opens up about the "f**king awful" time after that LAX incident

Stranger Things star Charlie Heaton has opened up about last year’s incident at LAX airport that left him unable to attend the premiere party for the show’s second season.

Reflecting on the story, which prompted a flurry of speculation, Charlie has told Flaunt magazine that the situation was “f**king awful. It was just awful.”

Fortunately for fans, the incident – which was related to “an issue at US immigration” – has been rectified, with Heaton confirming that he can go back to start shooting season three next month.

“Yeah, it’s all sorted now,” he said.

Charlie – who plays Jonathan Byers in the hit TV series – also opened up about coming to terms with fame, and how the news coverage following the incident made him feel “vulnerable”.

“It was hard. Everything happened so fast, and I hadn’t come to terms with the fact that I was famous,” he said. “When something steps in from the work you are doing and breaks into your personal life…you feel kind of vulnerable.

“All of a sudden it becomes a very big story and it gets really blown out of proportion.”

“I don’t know if you can," our New Fantasy cover man and @StrangerThingsTV star @Charlie.R.Heaton says of whether you can tell if a show is going to be a hit or not. "You all hope when you do a project and you see it from the inside that it’s going to be a great success. I remember getting to the end of season one. Me, @uncle_jezzy and @nattyiceofficial had become really close and I remember us all saying goodbye, wondering if we’d ever see each other again. Really, we had no idea that it was ever going to be as big as it was globally. I was in Spain when it came out and I had people in this tiny little town coming up to me. I’ve now traveled all over the world—it really has gone everywhere and it seems to just keep on growing.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Hit Flaunt.com to read the full story and to purchase the New Fantasy Issue now! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Photographer: @crownsandOwls Stylist: @helenseamons Groomer: @samcmakeup ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Cover Image: @fendi cream jacket, shirt, belt, pants.

Fortunately for fans, it sounds like Heaton’s future on the show was never in danger – at least not according to Stranger Things costume designer Kim Wilcox.

Last month, Wilcox revealed that Charlie is “one of [her] favourite of all the actors” and praised the 23-year-old for his “sensitive soul”.

“He’s a fine actor and… he is very professional and an incredibly generous human being, so I don’t see why they wouldn’t invite him back,” she reassured fans.

Heaton will be joining the rest of the cast and crew when production on season three kicks off in a matter of weeks.

Stranger Things is available to stream on Netflix.
