Noah Schnapp Reveals How He Came Out To ‘Stranger Things’ Bestie Millie Bobby Brown

Noah Schnapp knows he can count on Millie Bobby Brown! The actor revealed how he came out to his “Stranger Things” co-star and real-life BFF Millie Bobby Brown, telling Variety in a new interview published this week that the conversation didn’t exactly go as he’d imagined but Millie’s reaction couldn’t have been sweeter. “I kept trying to do it in person with her, and it was too hard.” he said. “So then I just FaceTimed her one day in the middle of a Party City and I was like, ‘Millie, I’m gay.’ And she was like, ‘Oh, Schnapper! You told me finally!'” The 18-year-old came out publicly back in January in an instantly viral TikTok video, in which he captioned “I guess I’m more similar to Will than I thought.” Noah’s journey mirrored that of his TV alter ego Will Byers, who was confirmed to be gay in the Netflix hit’s fourth season. Prior to the installment’s 2022 premiere, Noah and Millie told Access Hollywood how much “Stranger Things” has changed their lives.
