Finn Wolfhard Praises Stranger Things Co-Star Noah Schnapp After His Public Coming Out

Finn Wolfhard Praises Stranger Things Co-Star Noah Schnapp After His Public Coming Out


"I think it was so incredible and brave," the actor said of his Stranger Things co-star.

A few weeks ago, actor Noah Schnapp took to TikTok to publicly come out as gay. Six months prior, Schnapp also confirmed that his Stranger Things character, Will Byers, was also gay. His coming out was met with plenty of support from friends and colleagues, and now fans have found an even deeper connection with his character.

In a recent interview with IndieWire, fellow Stranger Things costar Finn Wolfhard touched on Schnapp's coming out and addressed the powerful storyline about Will's unrequited love for Wolfhard's character, Mike, in the show.

"I'm incredibly proud of Noah for coming out like that," he said. "I think it was so incredible and brave."

In reference to Will and Mike's storyline, which featured a heartbreaking meme-worthy scene in season 4 when Will tells Mike how important he is, Wolfhard said, "As far as the Mike and Will relationship goes, I always found it kind of funny, especially last season of Mike just being so clueless. I would imagine Mike is going to be totally accepting of Will, and I really want Will to have a really happy ending."

Stranger Things is set to wrap after its fifth season, which will let viewers know if that happy ending is actually in the cards, not just for Will, but for anybody.

"What's going to be so awesome about season five is that the Duffers are sort of trying to thread this needle of trying to get every character to have their perfect ending. So I'm excited to see what ends up happening."

The final season of Stranger Things is slated for a 2024 release.
