Actor Noah Schnapp, known for his role in the hit show Stranger Things, recently came out as gay in a TikTok video.
In the video, Schnapp lip syncs to a woman saying “You know what it never was? That serious,” while displaying text that marks his first public acknowledgement of his sexual orientation. Schnapp also revealed that when he told his friends and family about being gay, after being in the closet for 18 years, they simply replied “we know.”
Schnapp’s character, Will Byers, has been interpreted as potentially LGBTQ+ by fans, leading to speculation about Schnapp’s own sexual orientation.
In his TikTok post, Schnapp notes that he may be more similar to his character than previously thought.
