Warning: Season 4 of Stranger Things spoilers ahead. Vecna is the most hated and feared Hawkins figure. (However, Jason is a close second.) When Vecna still had flesh on him, he massacred his family and the whole Hawkins Lab.
By the time Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) decided to send him to the Upside Down, he had become even eviler, having developed the Mind Flayer and brutally murdered several famous figures from the fanbase as well as at least three students from Hawkins High School.
Even though Eddie’s (Joseph Quinn) tragic passing was largely a noble act, Vecna is equally to blame. Not to mention, putting Max (Sadie Sink), whose future is uncertain, is in the hospital.
One Stranger Things actor, though, has sympathy for Hawkins’ wicked inhabitant. There was “a lot of humanity” in the character he plays, Henry-slash-One-slash-Vecna, according to Jamie Campbell Bower, who plays him.
According to the Twilight star, who was asked to explain his perspective, “[Vecna] grew up in a setting where his father murdered a civilian and a civilian family on the orders of individuals he never met, who were presenting themselves as these upstanding citizens.
Whose eyes do they stand upright in? Right now, I’m still upset about it. (Bower’s view of Vecna and the notion that he wasn’t fundamentally evil is comparable to the Dungeons & Dragons character Vecna is named after—a once-human ruler who only later turns evil.)

Bower went on to describe what he believes transpired to Vecna following Eleven’s decision to send him to the Upside Down. “All he has left is this anger and bitterness. She deprives him of everything; all he might have had is now lost as a result of her. That infuriates me. It’s fostering hatred, he added; it’s more than that.
Vecna, according to Bower, “still has a level of humanity,” “despite where he is today,” but this anger has devoured him. We can sometimes become really, terribly consumed by things if we cling to them for too long. People can relate to this state, according to Bower.
Bower endured Vecna’s intense resentment. He even claimed to have used a method to “truly tap into” it, according to Variety. Bower told the magazine in May, “I wouldn’t speak to anybody. “I would often find myself acting in fairly bizarre ways. They would comprehend if they saw me wandering the streets of Atlanta at two in the morning and talking to myself.
I was merely drawing up a great deal of rage, especially at Vecna. To absorb his character, he would even sit for 30 minutes in costume in a “completely pitch black” room. Even though Bower has played villains before—he played Grindelwald in two Harry Potter films and a leader of the Volturi in Twilight—he admitted that he “started to become rather terrified of Vecna.”
That Bower has a soft spot for his lethal on-screen image is not surprising. “I love him and I understand him. And because I can relate to him, I’ll always be on his side.
