Whether or not you’re rooting for Joyce Byers and Chief Jim Hopper to end up together on Stranger Thingsand some of us don’t — the chemistry between David Harbour and Winona Ryder is pretty undeniable. While Harbour is one of the strongest proponents of an end-game Jopper (Joyce + Hopper) relationship, it’s clear he has a lot of respect for his costar off-screen.

In a new interview with Variety, Harbour opened up about how much he loves working with Ryder and how that might influence the amount of time Hopper and Joyce spend together on-screen.

As for being the biggest fan of a potential relationship between Joyce and Hopper, Harbour revealed that he’s been playing Hopper as having a crush on Joyce since the pilot. But despite thinking Hopper has a bit of a crush on Joyce, he’s glad the Duffer Brothers are giving them time to be friends.

But as much as Harbour would like to see Joyce and Hopper end up together, he’s pretty skeptical as to whether their relationship could actually last because let’s face it, a lot has happened.

Whether or not Hopper and Joyce are meant to be or remain the best of friends, we love knowing that Harbour and Ryder are just as good of friends off-screen as they are on-screen!
