The actor Noah Schnapp, who is best known for playing Will Byers on Stranger Things, has feigned openness about his sexual orientation. On January 5, Schnapp shared a TikTok in which he lip-synced the music with the text, “You know what it never was? That serious. It was never that serious. Quite frankly, will never be that serious.”” The text reads, “When I finally told my friends and family I was gay after being scared in the closet for 18 years and all they said was ‘we know.’”
Schnapp added in the caption, “I guess I’m more similar to will than I thought,”referring to the fact that Schnapp and the show both implied that Will Byers was gay after the fourth season of Stranger Things finished. As for the show, Schnapp initially revealed to Variety that Will Byers is gay and in love with his best friend Mike in July, following the release of the final two episodes of the fourth season of “Stranger Things.” In the comments section, Celebrities and fans alike showered Noah with support. “Welcome king,” Meghan Trainor’s BFF, Chris Olsen, wrote. Another wrote, “Good for you for being your true self!” while someone else commented, “He said method acting.”
Schnapp and Millie Bobby Brown, who plays Eleven on the show, are renowned for being close friends, and both of them grew up in the shadow of rumours about their love relationships. Not to add the unstoppable meme that Brown is homophobic and, more particularly, that she drives her car into gay guys. Brown is not anti-homosexual. However, given how preoccupied with everything the internet is, we still advise Schnapp to look both ways before crossing the street.
Since the premiere of Stranger Things, Will’s sexual orientation has been a subject of debate, although Schnapp has consistently brushed off inquiries about the character’s sexual orientation by saying that it was still “up to the audience’s participation.” Will’s path was revealed in Season 4 of “Stranger Things,” according to Schnapp, who admitted that he wasn’t quite sure what Matt and Ross Duffer had in mind for the character. Although Season 5 of “Stranger Things” will wrap up the series, Netflix and the Duffers have not yet said when filming will start on the season or when it will air.
