‘I was just in this phase, where I was like, I’m just going to be brutally honest about everything, because why lie? And I told her something about my life, about my beliefs.

‘It would take a really extraordinary person to be accepting of the things that I said. And I remember thinking: Wow, that’s somebody I want to be around.’

David also discussed the early days of their relationship and how the pair met on Raya while he was dating in London.

He said: ‘I was in London alone, doing Black Widow, on this app, going on dates and stuff.

‘And yeah, I started texting with her, she was in Italy at the time — we got together, went on a date at the Wolseley, and it was, you know, she’s f*****g unbelievable.’ 

David and Lily married in Las Vegas in September 2020, with the ceremony officiated by an Elvis Presley impersonator.

The Stranger Things actor is now stepfather to Lily’s daughters Ethel, 10, and Marnie, nine, who she shares with her ex Sam Cooper. 

David, who plays Jim Hopper in the hit Netflix series, also discussed his favourite moments from season four, including El’s climactic mind battle with Vecna and the ‘Empire Strikes Back cliffhanger’ which sees Hawkins torn asunder, doused in hellish flames.

He said: ‘There’s like, huge rift earthquakes going through all of Indiana, one would assume, so I don’t know what the f*ck is gonna happen in season five now.’

Season five is set to be the big series endgame, but given Stranger Things’ gargantuan popularity, some sort of continuation has to be on the cards.

David added:’I think as soon as the show ends, or maybe six months before it ends, you’ll be hearing about whatever spin-offs they have planned.

He said: 'At this point, I think Hopper is a character that can exist independent of me. If they wanna go back in time, forward in time… I'd love to see another actor play Hopper, and see what they can bring to it' (pictured in Stranger Things)
