Actor Noah Schnapp—who most of us know as Will Byers from Netflix's Stranger Things—has come out. And Schnapp made it publicly known in true 18-year-old fashion... through a TikTok video.

The words, "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," flashed across the screen while Schnapp lip-synched to a trending TikTok audio.

The voice in the audio said:

"You know what it never was? That serious."
"It was never that serious."
"Quite frankly, will never be that serious."

Schnapp cleverly captioned his video:

"I guess I'm more similar to Will than I thought."

It was made apparent in the latest season that Schnapp's Stranger Things character thought more of his BFF Mike than just a friend.

Viewers of the video were both surprised and excited for the star and also, of course, loved the caption.

Many also commented on his journey through the seasons and recalled scenes that now seem so much deeper given the new information.

Congrats, Noah!
