Stranger Things star Noah Schnapp (Will Byers) weighs in on his character’s sexuality. In season 3, Will Byers struggles to understand his girl-crazy friends and why they’d rather talk about breakups than play “Dungeons and Dragons”.
“It’s not my fault you don’t like girls, “mike wheeler tells him at one point. Fans were quick to speculate that will could be gay but Noah isn’t giving his character a label just yet.
“When you hear Mike say that line,” He told The Wrap
“It’s really up to the audience to interpret it” “I kind of interpret it like he’s not ready to grow up” “and he doesn’t really want to move on to dating and relationships yet” “he still wants to be a kid and play in the basement Like he did in old times”
No matter how will ends up identifying. He has a good reason for lagging behind his friends in the romance department “while all the characters were out developing and growing up.”Noah explained,
“Will be in the upside-down, and he was alone there” not interacting or connected to his friends or the rest of the world” “and when he got back, he expected everything to just go back to how it was before.
