Stranger Things' Noah Schnapp Found Out He Got The Part of Will While He Was At Camp

Stranger Things' Noah Schnapp Found Out He Got The Part of Will While He Was At Camp

There are some really cute audition stories out here — but Stranger ThingsNoah Schnapp‘s has to the best one.

Speaking with NKD magazine in their November issue, the actor who plays Will Byers on the show, revealed that he was actually at camp when he learned he got the part.

“I go to camp every summer for seven weeks and it’s like sleepaway camp,” Noah explains. “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.”

He adds that the project was as originally called Montauk, and he auditioned for the role of Mike.

“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.”

Noah also adds that the unique storyline truly pulled him in from the start.

“It was just very different from things I’ve seen,” he says. “I’ve never seen any story like that, where a kid goes missing and there’s monsters, but there’s a girl with powers who comes in and saves them.”

He adds, “I thought it would be really cool to play a role where I go missing and people look for me and I’m in this other world.”

Stranger Things is streaming now on Netflix.

He added, “So, for the first, I don’t know, six weeks prior to shooting, I was training, doing all this swimming prep. I thought I was going to be in, like, a Speedo…And on the first day I showed up and they were like ‘Oh, no, we cut that!’”

'Stranger Things' Creator Reveals How Eleven Was Supposed To Die in Season 1

'Stranger Things' Creator Reveals How Eleven Was Supposed To Die in Season 1

Stranger Things fans were shook this week when it was revealed that Eleven, played by Millie Bobby Brown, was actually supposed to die in the first season.

During a Q&A event at Chapman University, Ross Duffer explained that he had a plan for Eleven’s demise on the show.

“Maybe I shouldn’t say this because I like to pretend that it was all planned out, but it was originally pitched as a limited series,” he explains.

Ross adds, “So it was like, Eleven was gonna sacrifice herself and save the world and then that was gonna be it, because there was a moment where limited series were a big deal.”

The show would’ve been so much different — thankfully, Netflix wanted more and kept Eleven around.

TELL JJJ: Could you imagine what the show would be like without Eleven now?

“I was like, ‘Can you help read for me behind the camera tonight?’” he added. “Then during the day I made everything else happen—the dancing and the rest, going out in the G-string and just playing around with it, and putting it together on iMovie and doing all that sort of stuff. And then my two friends came around in the evening, and they had no idea.”
