Stranger Things’ Noah Schnapp Says His Character Will Byer Is ‘100% Gay’

This article contains spoilers for Stranger Things season four.

Stranger Things star Noah Schnapp has opened up about his character’s sexuality.

Noah has portrayed Will Byers in all four seasons of the hit Netfix sci-fi drama, although in recent years fans of the show have speculated that the character might be gay.

While the 17-year-old has long avoided sharing his personal take on his character’s sexuality, he admitted in a new interview with Variety that he agrees with viewers’ long-held theories about Will.

It’s pretty clear that Will has feelings for Mike this season,” Noah said. “They’ve been pulling that out on purpose for the past few seasons.

“Even in the first season they pointed that out and slowly, slowly this storyline grew. I think season four was just me playing this character who loves his best friend but struggles to know if he’s accepted or not and feels like a mistake and doesn’t belong. Will has always felt that way.”

He continued: “All his friends, they all have girlfriends and they all fit into their different clubs. Will never really found space. I think that’s why so many people come up to me and tell me they love Will and they relate so much to him because he’s such a real character.”

Earlier this year, before the second half of season four debuted on Netflix, Noah told Variety that Will’s sexuality is “left to audience interpretation.”

When asked about those comments in his most recent interview with the US outlet, Noah admitted he made them to try to avoid spoilers for the then upcoming episodes.

He added: “It was always kind of there but you never really knew if he was just growing up slower than his friends?

“Now that he’s gotten older, they’ve made it a very real, obvious thing. Now it’s 100% clear he’s gay and loves Mike.”

All four seasons of Stranger Things are available now on Netflix.
