The friendship of two of the protagonists of Stranger Things has crossed the screen
For most fans of the Stranger Things series, the most important characters are Will Byers and Mike. During the past four seasons there has always been speculation about whether they were not really just friends but that they were in love. For this latest installment of the series the wishes of the spectators have finally been fulfilled and Will, played by Noah Schnapp, has come out of the closet.
From the first season you could see the attraction he felt for his friend but it was never really known. The screenwriters have chosen to develop the character completely before he tells that he is in love with his best friend Mike, played by Finn Wolfhard. Unfortunately for his followers, after this revelation this will be the last time we can see both actors playing these roles together.
Taking advantage of the date of the premiere of the last season last January, Noah has decided to make another confession. This time in real life, the actor has posted a video through his TikTok account in which he confirmed being gay. As a footnote he wrote “I guess I’m more similar to Will than I thought”. In it he explained that he had come out of the closet with his friends and family at 18 years old and that he had been surprised by the response they gave him. Turns out everyone told him they already knew it.
During a recent interview for GQ, his friend Finn talked about it. “I only had a huge smile on my face when I saw the news. It made me feel very proud of him” confessed about who has become his friend also behind the scenes. He also took advantage of this conversation to talk about his relationship with the rest of his cast mates, whom he classified as family.
The actors of the famous series Stranger Things have been together since they were 11-13 years old filming. Having grown up together is a fact that now that everyone has come to the legal age makes them feel like cousins. Finn himself has acknowledged that this doesn’t mean they talk every day. “Do you text your cousins every day? Probably not” he laughed. “They’re my family. We talk on birthdays and occasionally. But in the same way that happens with the family, if I ever need anything, I know they will be there” he said.
