Noah Schnapp, most famous for his role as Will Byers in Stranger Things, is currently trending on TikTok. As any Stranger Things fan would know, Noah’s character Will struggles with being a closeted gay teenager. In his latest TikTok video, Noah’s caption states, “I guess I’m more similar to Will than I thought.”

On the video itself, Noah put up text sharing how he came out as gay to his loved ones and how it went down: “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'”. Honestly, this is one of the best reactions we can expect from our loved ones in moments like these.

At the same time, Noah lip-syncs to a voice clip saying, “You know what it never was? That serious. It was never that serious. Quite frankly, will never be that serious.”
