Natalia Dyer and her costars have a group chat where they share romance memes about “Stranger Things” characters Nancy Wheeler and Robin Buckley.
‘s fandom site, Tudum, published an article Friday with Natalia Dyer, who plays Nancy Wheeler, after the long-awaited “Stranger Things” season four finale aired last week. During an interview with Ariana Romero, Dyer discussed her character’s love life.
In the hit series, Nancy Wheeler is currently dating Jonathan Byers (Charlie Heaton) but was previously in a relationship with Steve Harrington (Joe Keery). Maya Hawke plays Robin Buckley, a friend of Steve who joined the cast in season three.
During her character arc, Robin comes out to Steve and confides in him about her sexuality. In season four, Nancy and Robin strengthen their bond as they team up to defeat Vecna, the lead villain.
“There’s a lot of things going on, and I don’t know if that sort of high school romance thing is as important as everything else,” Dyer, 27, said before adding details.
“But, yeah, I think there are things about both Steve and Jonathan that Nancy really likes. I noticed that there’s a lot of RoNance shipping as well. I love Nancy having a girlfriend. It’s nice,” Dyer told Tudum.
Dyer then revealed that she, Heaton, Keery, and Hawke have a text thread where they share “RoNance” memes.
“We actually have a text thread that talks [about that] a bit. We send each other memes of things regarding that ship, which is funny,” Dyer told Tudum.
Dyer added that the cast thought audiences would enjoy Robin and Nancy as a duo.
“The internet is a very funny place, so there’s a lot of very interesting takes on things going on,” she said.
Although there’s speculation over Nancy Wheeler’s love life, Dyer and Heaton reportedly began dating around 2016 after meeting on the “Stranger Things” set, according to Elle. The outlet reported that Dyer and Heaton were spotted kissing in 2017.
The couple recently attended “Stranger Things” season 4 events together in Spain.
Season five will be the final “Stranger Things” installment. Dyer told Tudum she’d love a scene to center around Nancy and her onscreen brother Mike, (played by Finn Wolfhard) explaining all the hijinks to their parents, Karen and Ted Wheeler.
“I really would love a good Wheeler scene. I really would love to have a Nancy and Mike scene — and Karen. What is she doing? She’s got to find out. The parents! Come on. They’ve got to get in there, for sure,” Dyer said.
