"Stranger Things" star Noah Schnapp came out as gay in an 8-second TikTok video on Thursday.
The 18-year-old actor, who plays closeted gay teenager Will Byers in the hit Netflix series, wrote on-screen, "When I finally told my friends and family I was gay after being scared and in the closet for 18 years and all they said was 'we know.'"
In the video, Schnapp was also lip-syncing along with an audio clip popular on TikTok of someone saying, "You know what it never was? That serious. It was never that serious. Quite frankly, will never be that serious."
