In a podcast of That Scene With Dan Patrick, David Harbour said, "Millie and I have always had sort of a special relationship because I knew her when she was so young, I knew her before any of this big fame hit." Millie was just 12 years when she shot to fame for her portrayal of Eleven. Harbour continued and added that he constantly worried for her as she had to deal with such fame at a young age. "I've just always felt this kind of deep fatherly affection for her" said David. 

Meanwhile, Harbour also dropped hints about his character Chief Hopper who was in a Russian prison camp and that it was a return to "The warrior realm because there's something as you get to be the dad role where, you know, it's a bit like the dad gene." Stranger Things season 4 will soon be releasing on Netflix, the date of the release has not been announced yet. Producer Shawn Levy in an interview with Variety said that the season 4 of the show was much more ambitious than the preceding three seasons.
