Noah Cameron Schnapp, known for his role as Will Byers in the Netflix science fiction horror series Stranger Things has been the talk of the town lately.
Earlier last week, the 18-year-old American actor came out as gay in public through a video posted on his TikTok on January 5, 2023.
The video was about the actor speaking his heart out on how relieved he is that his family and friends accepted his coming out. He captioned the video stating that he guessed he was more similar to Will Byers, his Stranger Things character who was also gay than he believed.
After the huge success of the American science fiction horror drama television series, Stranger Things, the cast was very much celebrated among the fans. And out of these, Noah Schnapp was the one who gained a huge fan base, especially from fangirls. Now let’s look out the Noah Schnapp’s dating life.
Noah Schnapp’s Dating Life
His dating life was a big question mark among these girls and every fan of the show was head over heels for falling for him. Although there was a myriad of rumors circulating all over the internet, people were not much aware of the young boy’s dating life.
Schnapp was so close with his Stranger Things co-star Millie Bobby Brown which paved way for doubt among the fans and even Millie’s boyfriend, Jake Bongiovi.
Millie opened up in an interview that when Jake saw Millie for the first time, he told her that she and Noah are in love as even he felt the indisputable chemistry between the two.
Apart from Millie-Noah rumors and shippers, Noah was not spotted in public with anyone. Also, since the actor has revealed his sexuality lately, fans could even expect some more updates regarding his relationship status.
As of now, the Stranger Things actor is not dating anyone and is single for the time being. While disclosing the updates on his sexuality, he said that he was scared in the closet for 18 years and just like that fans can hope that he’ll soon disclose any romantic relationship anytime soon just like the latest coming out.
Also, Noah being a teenager, who has just reached 18, still has time for some serious relationships. And one thing which fans aren’t sure about is whether the actor will keep his dating life private like most actors these days.
Days after coming out as gay, Noah posted another video of him having fun with his friends on his biggest reveal. The video shows the actor and his friends joking about his coming out and making headlines on the internet.
From the video, everyone seems chilled and okay with his decision to come out. As a friend of his shouted ‘Noah Schnapp gay’ at 18 after acting to read a headline, the room of friends burst into screams as the camera slowly moved to focus on Schnapp fake laughing.
As fans are anticipating the fifth and final season of the series, Schnapps coming out has created a confused state among the fans. This is because the character played by Noah belongs to the queer community and is having a romantic relationship with his best friend Mike Wheeler.
And as the story process, the fans are skeptical whether this coming out could bring any impact on the character, Will Byers. But as no further updates are made on the series’ upcoming season, all that fans could do is wait for the release anticipating what will happen next.
Born on October 3, 2004, in New York City, United States, Noah Schnapp is Jewish and has both U.S. and Canadian citizenship. With his huge desire to become an actor, his parents enrolled him in an acting program at Westchester’s Star Kidz under coach Alyson Isbrandtsen.
Schnapp debuted in the 2015 historical drama film Bridge of Spies by Steven Spielberg which won an Academy Award in the same year. And later in 2016, his breakthrough television series was released on Netflix in July. The series released its second, third, and fourth seasons in October 2017, July 2019, and May and July 2022 respectively.
