Jamie Campbell Bower found himself in a tricky spot as a fan tried to get him to sign what looked like a marriage certificate.

The Stranger Things actor, 34, was appearing at Comic Con in Montreal when he got the unusual request.

A video shared on TikTok shows the fan - who the actor appeared to recognise - approaching with a piece of paper that she wanted him to sign.

However, he had a long look at the document as he chewed gum, asking: "Is this legally binding?"

The woman said it wasn't, but Bower read on: "This is not THE legal marriage record... what is the legal marriage record?"

The fan insisted the document was "just a fancy thing you hang up", but the star admitted: "I'm concerned."

The lady pointed out that Bower had signed "the other one" but he said that had been a scan.

"It does make me worried," he said. "It does."

The woman was clearly taken aback and Bower - who stars as Vecna in the Netflix hit - rushed to reassure her, saying: "No, no it is not your fault."

He then asked if it would be OK to sign a different picture, explaining: "It just gives me the willies, just a little."

"I'm really sorry," he added.

The lady shared the clip on TikTok with the caption: "He signed the wrong spot on the first one."

She also said the TV star was "amazing".

However, many fans who viewed the clip were unimpressed, with one calling it "a tough watch".

"I'm sorry but Jamie looks so uncomfortable with the situation," said one.

"He was chewing faster because he was getting so nervous," another said.

"He didn’t want to disappoint you but he was so anxious."
