Eddie dies in the finale while sacrificing himself to keep the Upside Down’s bats away from the rest of the group.
While speaking to Yahoo, joseph revealed that he knew about Eddie’s fate all along.
“I did. I mean, I’m not going to lie, I thought if I kind of worked hard enough, they might bring me back. But then I think before I even went there, we got the scripts during the pandemic. So we knew the lay of the land before we even got started. So I knew that it was going to be a one-and-done kind of thing, which is kind of sad,” he said. “But it’s a beautiful bow for the character. So I feel whilst I’m very sad not to come back and be with those lovely people, there’s worse ways to leave the show, you know?”
joseph also talked about filming his final scene.
“I mean, it’s been a while now. But I remember it being pretty cold. It was at the end of a pretty brutal night shoot, where we were filming the bat fight and all of that stuff. And then I went into a makeup prosthetics surgery table. And I was on this table for about two hours with these fantastic makeup artists putting all this stuff on me, and stuff in my mouth, and these contact lenses in my eyes. And then we turned the cameras on and had a go at it. And we didn’t have enough time, but yeah, we got away with it, yeah,” he said.
