Actor Noah Schnapp comes  out as a gay.

Noah plays Will Byers on the popular Netflix show Stranger Things.

He announced his homosexuality  via a TikTok video.

In the video posted, he wrote, "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."

Referring to his character Will Byers of ST, he wrote, "I guess I'm more similar to Will than I thought."

Noah was lip-syncing to an audio clip saying, "You know what it never was? "That's serious. It was never that serious. Quite frankly, it will  never be that serious."

Noah fans reacted to this news gracefully and are congratulating  him for the courage he gathered  to open up about his sexual identity.

In July last year, Noah also addressed Will's sexual orientation, in an interview with Variety.

He confirmed that Will has romantic feelings towards best friend Mike.

Apart from Stranger Things, Noah Schnapp also featured in a couple  of films including Bridge of Spies.
