Warning, spoilers. Noah Schnapp embodies one of the main characters of “Stranger Things”. Now he’s revealing a previously unexplained detail about his character.
“Stranger Things” is currently one of the most popular formats on the streaming service. The series focuses on a group of young people, including Will Byers. He is portrayed by Noah Schnapp.
After the recently released Season 4 finale, the actor cracked down while speaking to Variety. In the process, he also answered a question that many viewers asked about his character: Is Will gay?
“Now it’s 100% clear”
Schnapp’s response explained that it was hinted in the first season, but fans never knew if it was actually true. “Maybe he’s just growing up a little slower than his friends? But now that Will is older, the creators have made that very clear. Now it’s 100% clear that he’s gay and he’s love Mike.” Mike Wheeler is Will’s friend on the show.

In fact, there are repeated references to Will’s sexual orientation in various episodes. In one scene, for example, other characters directly refer to him as gay. Also, during an argument, Mike tells Will, “It’s not my fault you don’t like girls.”
