Is Joseph Quinn in a Relationship? The Question Everyone (Including Doja Cat) Is Asking
Over the years, "Stranger Things" has introduced us to many brilliant actors who make up the ever-expanding ensemble cast of iconic characters. In the supersize fourth season of the Netflix sci-fi phenomenon, which sees Jamie Campbell Bower's supervillain, Vecna, terrorizing residents of Hawkins, one brand-new character, in particular, manages to shine, and that's none other than the Metallica-loving Eddie Munson, played by Joseph Quinn.
The 29-year-old British actor has rightfully earned the title of Internet Boyfriend ever since his impactful turn in the penultimate season, which culminates with Eddie's tear-jerking sacrifice in the action-packed season finale. His powerful performance as the leader of the Dungeons & Dragons-playing Hellfire Club (and a shout-out from a global pop star) has led many fans to go digging into Quinn's dating history. While the actor likes to keep his personal life under wraps, keep reading for every detail we've pieced together about his current relationship status.
Joseph Quinn's Dating History
Despite having been acting steadily for over a decade, Quinn has managed to keep his private affairs to himself pretty much for the entirety of his acting career. His lack of social media footprint is as solid an indicator as any that the heartthrob leads a relatively low-key life. The actor only recently created an Instagram account in May, which he's so far used mostly to promote "Stranger Things."
Who Is Joseph Quinn Dating Now?
At the moment, Quinn doesn't appear to be dating someone, at least not publicly. However, that doesn't rule out the possibility that he's seeing someone behind the scenes.
Noah Schnapp (who plays Will Byers on the show) may have indirectly confirmed his fellow costar's single status. When Doja Cat, who had already publicly made her admiration for Quinn known, recently asked Schnapp to get her in contact with Quinn via Instagram DM, she quickly dropped in a follow-up message, writing, "wait no. does he have a gf?" The 17-year-old actor then responded, typing, "LMAOO slide into his dms." Instead of directly disclosing Quinn's current relationship status, Schnapp simply responded to the "Vegas" singer by sending a link to Quinn's profile.
Had Quinn been in a relationship to Schnapp's knowledge, Schnapp probably would have given Doja a heads up before sending her the link to Quinn's Instagram page. Their brief conversation (which Schnapp subsequently shared a snapshot of on TikTok without Doja's permission, prompting her to call his behavior "socially unaware and wack") may suggest that Quinn's relationship status is single. Then again, Schnapp may have no knowledge of Quinn's relationship status and was simply passing on Quinn's profile so Doja could find out for herself.
Until Quinn confirms it himself, his relationship status remains a mystery.
