stranger things Stars Noah Schnapp and Millie Bobby Brown have thrown cold water at fan speculation about character Will Byers’ sexuality.
Since the third season of the Netflix show, fans have debated her theory that Will might be gay and is having trouble coming out after developing feelings for his best friend Mike Wheeler (Finn Wolfhard).
Speculation only heightened with Season 4, which released last week, after multiple scenes suggested that might be the case.
While Wolfhard apparently agreed in a recent interview that Will “loves” Mike, Schnapp, who plays Will, isn’t so sure.
Speaking about how the Duffer brothers’ series creators are handling the potential reveal, Schnapp opened up diversity: “I feel like they never really address or say openly what Will is like. I think that’s the beauty of it, it’s just up to the audience’s interpretation, whether Will is just refusing to grow up and slowing down than his friends, or is he really gay.
Brown, who plays Eleven, continued, “Let me just say it’s 2022 and we don’t have to label things.
“I think the really beautiful thing about Will’s character is that he’s just a human going through his own personal demons and issues. So many kids out there don’t know, and that’s okay. It’s okay not to know. And it’s okay not to label things.”
Snapp then added, “I find that people reach out to label him and just want to know, so badly, like, ‘Oh, and that’s it.’ He’s just confused and growing up. And that’s what being a kid is.”
In season four, Will is shown to be upset with Mike for not keeping in touch after moving to California. He is also shown to cringe when a girl darts him to class where he is doing a project on Alan Turing.
Turing is the mathematician and computer scientist who helped crack a number of German ciphers during the war. He was later persecuted in 1952 for his homosexuality.
