“I'm always happy for people that are true to themselves and come out," he said of the announcement. "That was terrific.”

The video saw Schnapp miming over a popular TikTok meme, with the caption reading: “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'. I guess I'm more similar to Will than I thought.”

Harbour isn’t the only Stranger Things cast member to congratulate Schnapp, with Finn Wolfhard saying: “When I saw it, I just had a big smile on my face. I was just really proud of him.”
