In the selfie-style clip the actor captioned the video: "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," the actor, who essays the character of Will Byers in the Netflix series, captioned the post.

This comes after viewers speculated that Schnapp’s character was part of the LGBTQIA+ community, which was later confirmed by the teen himself in July 2022 when he told Variety, "He is gay, and he does love Mike".
