‘STRANGER THINGS’ NOAH SCHNAPP MAKING A SPLASH IN COLLEGE …Jumps Into Pool At Party
Earlier, Noah Schnapp becomes a subject of death hoax. A Facebook page allegedly claimed that the 15-year-old, who plays Will Byers on the hit Netflix show, passed away on May 12, but it’s time someone sets the record straight.
Noah is, thankfully, alive and well despite a since-deleted social media announcement stating he had died amid the global health crisis. The fact that the SAG Award winner hasn’t posted to his Instagram or Twitter accounts since May 2 added to the confusion surrounding the phony story.
It’s somewhat ironic that Noah became the victim of a death hoax given that a fake corpse resembling The Peanuts Movie alum actually exists thanks to Season 1 of Stranger Things. Viewers might recall that his character’s body was found in a quarry after he mysteriously vanished, but it turned out to be a dummy.
In a 2017 interview, Noah explained what it was like to see a dead version of himself. “I went to New York City and they did this molding of my face for it,” he shared at Comic-Con.
“It was like an hour and they put this clay stuff or something on my face. I was like, ‘Wow, this is so magical and scary.’ It was weird,” he admitted. “It looks really ugly and bad. I don’t know if that’s offending myself, but it’s just bad, it’s scary.” Noah’s co-star, Millie Bobby Brown, hilariously revealed that the cast had fun punching the corpse.
The series’ co-creators, twins Matt and Ross Duffer, noted that an artist named Justin Raleigh created the life-like mannequin and did such an amazing job that “the Boston Children’s Hospital now has him build ‘simulation’ bodies to train their surgeons!”
