The final two episodes of the fourth season of Stranger Things appeared in July. After that, he spoke to Variety about the character of Will. There he stated that Will is gay and is in love with Mike, his best friend. He further clarified the thing for us. Noah stated that Will was always like that from the beginning. However, there was confusion as he was not a grown-up earlier. However, now as he has grown up, the series has clarified his sexual orientation as gay. He also added with emphasis that Will really loves Mike. 

In fact, anyone familiar with Stranger Things would know that Will’s sexuality was always a point of debate from the very first days of the series. However, at that time, Noah refused to make any clarifications about the issue. He rather stated that he was unsure about the plans of the creators with the character of Will. At the same time, he also admitted that he never wanted to spoil the portrayal of the character’s journey in the series. 

Noah also recollected the appreciation that the character has earned from the audience. Sighting one such instance, he stated that when he was in Paris, a mid-aged man told him that he could relate to WIll, as he was exactly like him in his younger days. Such an appreciation has genuinely pleased him. At the same time, he also praised the creators for portraying this character in such a nice manner.  

Noah went on further to state that it was a real challenge to play Will in the series. The main reason behind this struggle as he stated is the multifaceted personality of Will. It is far from being a single-layered character. The long history and diversity of traumatic experiences experienced by Will have been a really tough thing to portray. However, as of now, he is doing the job with perfect ease and mastery.
