Stranger Things star David Harbour has shared his thoughts on Noah Schnapp’s coming out. Back in January, the 18-year-old actor made headlines after he came out as gay in a TikTok.
In a video posted to his 30 million followers, the University of Pennsylvania student was shown lip-syncing, “You know what it never was.
That Serious. It was never that serious. Quite frankly, it would never be that serious.” Schnapp also gave further insight into his coming out journey within the video’s caption, writing: “When I finally told my friends and family I was gay after being scared in the closet for 18 years, and all they said was ‘we know'”. “I guess I’m more similar to Will than I thought,” he added, referencing the sexuality of his breakout Stranger Things character.
Since that fateful day, Schnapp has received supportive messages from fans and industry peers, including his Stranger Things co-star Harbour.
