The borderline between emotion and action has been a tricky one for David Harbour, who just received his second Emmy nomination for the role of Hawkins, Indiana, sheriff Jim Hopper in “Stranger Things.”

“I’m always fascinated emotionally in the moment that someone pulls a gun, even a cop,” Harbour said of his central role in the Duffer brothers’ Netflix drama. “That action — I don’t know that I, personally, as a human being could do it. So in the action sequences, the psychology really interests me.

“And in the more emotional sequences, the behavior really interests me. Which is more of the action, I guess. It’s kind of a paradox in that way.”
