Joseph Quinnwill never forget the first time he met Taylor Swift — for more than one reason.

The Stranger Thingsstar, 30, hilariously recalled the "cringe" moment during the Monday, July 1 episode of the Happy Sad Confused podcast.

"I met Taylor Swift once, and I said, 'You're Taylor Swift.' She was very funny," Quinn explained to host Josh Horowitz. "She said something nice about like the show Stranger Things, and I said, 'Oh, thanks. You're Taylor Swift. I mean it as a compliment.'"

After Horowitz laughed and added, "I mean, it is a compliment," Quinn continued, "It's definitely a compliment, and I remember thinking like that was f---ing stupid. But she was very good-humored about it."

Horowitz then asked, "Are you guys on good terms now that she's forgiven and forgotten?"

Quinn replied, "Excellent, yeah, great terms," and joked that he'd be featured on one of her upcoming albums.

"We are just trying to figure it out," he said, noting that she just hasn't "reached out" about it.

Although Quinn didn't disclose when their meeting took place, Swift, 34, has a connection to his Stranger Thingscostar, Sadie Sink, who starred in the 2021 short film for her beloved10-minute version of her track "All Too Well."

Quinn, who played Eddie Munson in season 4 of the Netflix series, said he is willing to make a return, even after his character seemingly died towards the end of the season.

"Chances are high. I love those guys! I'd love to say hello," he said in a conversation with Entertainment Tonight.

"I'm sure they're working very hard to land the plane. It's been a long time that they've been working on that, so I'm really delighted that they're kind of getting towards the end, and they're having a nice time. I'm sure they're gonna deliver it in a pretty epic way," he said. "I have no doubts."

One thing that has kept Quinn busy is his venture into film work.

While speaking with PEOPLE at the premiere of A Quiet Place: Day One, the actor opened up about how his costar Lupita Nyong'o helped him prepare for his upcoming portrayal of Johnny Storm, a.k.a. The Human Torch, in the new Fantastic Fourmovie.
