Lily Allen has said she won’t be following her husband David Harbour’s footsteps by potentially joining a Stranger Things spin-off.

David, 47, plays chief police Jim Hopper in the blockbuster Netflix drama, which will be concluding with its upcoming fifth season.

But it’s not over yet for the sci-fi show’s universe, which also stars Millie Bobby Brown and Noah Schnapp, with creators Matt and Ross Duffer previously teasing spin-offs.

The Enola Holmes actress, 19, may have reportedly rejected £10,000,000 to continue as Eleven in other Stranger Things content, but there must be many juicy roles potentially up for grabs and Lily, 37, would surely be the perfect fit.

The Smile hitmaker has been making waves in the acting industry, having taken on play 2:22 A Ghost Story and a lead role in Sharon Horgan’s upcoming black comedy, Dreamland.

The Not Fair chart topper spoke to at the drama’s screening on Thursday at Picturehouse Central in London, where she revealed starring in a Stranger Things spin-off was, sadly, not on the cards.

Asked if she could potentially join the cast, Lily replied: ‘I mean, I know 100% I would never be asked so, um, no.’

Never say never, we say.

David, who posed with the Hard Out Here musician at the screening has already thrown his support behind his wife’s acting ambitions.

After her West End debut in 2:22 A Ghost Story, he wrote on Instagram: ‘Very proud of my slightly nervous, immensely brave, annoyingly talented wife @lilyallen who has her first preview of her play @222aghoststory tonight. Like, that she’s acting in!

‘If you’re in London check it out at the Noel Coward til October something. Also, very excited to announce I’ve been working on a pop album. Get ready, cause it’s gonna suck!’ 

In Dreamland, the LDN star plays Mel who goes to visit her sister in the famous Kent seaside town of Margate, ahead of a family baby shower.

Lily is joined by Doctor Who’s Freema Agyeman playing her elder sister Trish, while Gabby Best and Aimee-Ffion Edwards also star in the six-part series.

Dreamland is an adaptation of the 2016 short film of the same name, which starred comic actress Morgana Robinson and was also created by Sharon.

Dreamland is available from April 6 on Sky Atlantic and Now, while Stranger Things is available to stream on Netflix.
