The fan said: "Hi, mine's not really a question, it's more an extension of gratitude really. I'm sure a lot of us have heard what happened yesterday, whether it's true or not, about how you were treated.

"I won't really comment on it, I just wanted to say, thank you from all of us - we're really grateful of you sharing the time. Thank you for signing our things, spending time with us and making our summer. I think we've all connected with Eddie for one reason or another."

Wiping a tear from his eye, Quinn replied: "That's very kind of you, thank you for your kind words."

The fan made reference to alleged events at the convention from the day before where it was purported that Quinn was forced to rush his meet and greet and was shouted at by the event's security. London Film and Comic Con denied the accusations.

Quinn has rose to fame as Eddie Munson in season four of Stranger Things. Before his breakout performance in the Netflix series, he was best known for his roles in Strike and Dickensian.

Quinn's performance in Stranger Things has also caused Metallica's 'Master of Puppets' to shoot up the charts as the song is integral to his character's storyline.

The hard rock band praised the use of the song and said they were "blown away" by its appearance in the sci-fi show.
