“It’s just his normal issues in high school, and it’s really nice to see that side of him,” Schnapp previewed his character ahead of Season 4
The fourth season of Stranger Things has caused quite a stir. The Netflix series is one of the most anticipated shows of the year and its stars have been eager to increase the feverish excitement by revealing tidbits of what to expect from the latest environment. Noah Schnapp’s Will Byers was one of the key figures with a massive connection to Upside Down. And ahead of the series premiere, the 17-year-old teased what’s to come for his character.
But Schapp was taciturn enough not to spoil, but instead gave the audience a brief glimpse. “You see him (Byers) in that supernatural environment that we’ve become accustomed to,” Schnapp told The Hollywood Reporter. “It’s just his normal hiccups in high school and it’s really nice to see that side of him.” And though he lives in a new city, don’t expect a new look: “You’re going to get the bowl cut and you guys you better love it because it won’t go away,” he teased.
ON THE SUBJECT OF MATCHING ITEMS
After being part of the show for three seasons and with a fourth and fifth episode on the way, in another interview with Collider, Schnapp also felt that he and the cast weren’t ready to move away from the roles and the show that made them what they were , to solve superstars. “That’s definitely something we don’t want to accept,” he noted. We’re not ready for that yet. And I think we’ve said that before, but we’re the last people to accept it. They can talk to anyone in front of us and we’re not ready for that.”
He also relived the exorcism scene in season 2 and called it one of the most challenging things he had ever done. “I think for me, so many. I think in the second season there was a scene right at the end when they took the monster out of me and it was the exorcism scene and I just screamed all night. It was so challenging because it was like they had to do so many angles and shots. And for every shot you have to give everything. You can’t take a shot half-heartedly. So there’s every other angle and every other shot is just constant screaming and all. It was all the way to 6:00 am. It was just so much. “
Stranger Things Season 4 premieres May 27 on Netflix.
