It would be easy for Dr. Brenner to become a completely toxic human being. He fits well into Dr. Frankenstein’s archetype, seeing himself as a caring mentor figure teaching his subjects how to control their deadly abilities and never questioning whether he is the one. whether the person crosses the line with his or her behavior. In his smaller, quieter moments and gestures, his true self begins to come out, some of which is what Modine is doing. He explained:
“You know, in the first episode of season 4, when I realized that [10’s] being killed – it was a very emotional moment, because I believe that Dr. Brenner loved each of those children in their own special way. If there were another actor playing Dr. Brenner, he or she may have chosen to ignore the dead child. To put him in a loving embrace and to feel the loss of Dr. Brenner is as important and vital to me as the way I will portray the character. “
In the case of Eleven, it helps that Modine and Brown have a real-life relationship that parallels the relationship between their characters (which, of course, is the relationship between their characters). much healthier). “Millie and I, because we’ve been working since she was 11, the bond of love we have for each other is something that can be felt,” added Modine. “It’s something beyond words, but then you feel the emotional connection between those two people. And me and Millie worked really hard to bring that to the audience.”
Indeed, Dr. Brenner’s final scene with Eleven in “Stranger Things” season 4 only landed strongly thanks to Modine and Brown. Kudo to both of them for filling a gap in the show’s storytelling.
