Noah Schnapp is who everyone knows as Will Byers from Stranger Things, and honestly, we couldn't think of a better boy for Winona Ryder (Joyce Byers) to stress over each season.
However, Noah had originally auditioned for the role of Mike (who as we all now know, is played by Finn Wolfhard).
"I go to camp every summer for seven weeks and it’s like sleepaway camp," he told NKD magazine. "You have three phone calls every summer with your parents and I was on my last phone call. And this was some audition blurred with all the other auditions I did, so I didn’t remember what it was, but I remember them calling me."
At the time, he didn't even know what the show was about. Heck, at that time, the show was called Montauk.
"They called me and they were like, ‘Hey, Noah!’ and I was like, ‘Who’s this?’ and they said, ‘Oh, you got the role of Will Byers on Montauk!’ and then they explained the whole thing and I was like, ‘Oh my God!’ and I was so excited and things have just been going from there," he remembers. "It was just very different from things I’ve seen."
