'Stranger Things' Star Noah Schnapp Talks About His Favorite Characters, 'Saddest Scene' & More

The Stranger Things fandom is eagerly awaiting season 4 of the Netflix original series, and any opportunity for fans to interact with cast members is proving to be a hit. On March 20, 2022, Stranger Things star Schnapp reviewed the finale and answered fan questions about the show. The young actor revealed his favorite characters from the show, talked about some behind-the-scenes trivia, and mentioned a scene from Season 4 that's sure to bring fans to tears.

Noah Schnapp mentioned Dustin, Will, Eleven and Joyce as two of his favorite 'Stranger Things' characters

Schnapp Will's character spent the majority of Season 1 in an alternate universe known as the Upside Down. The focus of Season 1 revolves around Will's friends, played by Wolfhard, Gaten Matarazzo and Caleb McLaughlin, as they search for him. Even though Schnapp didn't clock that much screen time, he is now one of the most important characters.

In Stranger Things Seasons 1 and 2, Schnapp's character joins his friends as they work together to defeat supernatural Upside Down monsters, evil government agents, and evil Russians. This trend appears to be continuing as we head into Stranger Things Season 4.

As the Season 1 finale drew to a close on the TikTok livestream, Schnapp watched Brown Eleven's character save her friends and defeat the monster known as the Demogorgon. However, when she sent the beast back to the Upside Down, it disappeared with her. When Eleven said her final goodbyes to Mike (Wolfhard,) Dustin (Matarazzo,) and Lucas (McLaughlin,) Schnapp got emotional.

The actor's eyes filled with tears before quietly saying, "Oh my God," as the scene unfolded in front of him. Of course, fans loved seeing Schnapp react so candidly to the moment.

Noah Schnapp talked about some of the saddest scenes from 'Stranger Things'

The comments section during the live stream was flooded with fans asking questions for Schnapp to answer. People have been asking him all about which couple he's "shipping" when the Stranger Things season 4 trailer drops. Schnapp didn't have time to answer everyone's questions. However, when a fan asked what he considered the saddest scene, he took a second to respond.

“What was the saddest scene to shoot? Probably the one from season 2 with my mother at the table. Or in Season 4, there's a scene… but I'm not going to say it.

Due to the hype around Stranger Things Season 4, Schnapp and the rest of the cast can't say too much about the plot. However, Schnapp saying that season 4 contains a particularly sad concern leaves fans worried about the potential characters.

It's safe to assume that Stranger Things Season 4 will feature the death of a character or two. A lot of people think Steve Harrington might not make it to Season 5. Others think there's a chance someone like Murray will die.

Noah Schnapp pointed out which scenes were filmed on set versus an actual location

As Schnapp watched with fans, he often pointed out which scenes were filmed on set. When one of the fans mentioned he lived in Atlanta, Schnapp told them they should visit the building the production used for the Hawkins Middle School scenes. He also explained that the film crew only used exterior shots of a house for the Byers' home. However, the scenes showing the interior of the house were built on a set.

Stranger Things season 4 is set outside of Hawkins, Indiana, which means more places for fans to explore. Seasons 1-3 are currently streaming on Netflix.
