‘Stranger Things’ star launches YouTube channel

Second Season of Netflix series is due to drop later this year

Stranger Things star Noah Schnapp who plays Will Byers has launched his own YouTube channel.

Entitled SchnappTube, the channel’s first vlog documents Schnapp’s journey to the SAG Awards over the weekend, and already counts nearly 14,000 views and 4,000 subscribers. Check it out below.

The actor revealed that he would be launching a YouTube channel last week. “Hey guys! Thinking of calling my YouTube channel SchnappTube,” Schnapp tweeted to his 150,000 followers. “What’d you guys think?” He also said that a video featuring his sister would soon be coming.

Schnapp says he plans to post additional vlogs and challenges to the channel in coming weeks.

Some of his favourite YouTubers, according to the Schnapptube ‘About’ section, are Typical Gamer, Liza Koshy, and Lilly ‘Superwoman’ Singh — with whom he and fellow Stranger Things star Caleb McLaughlin shot a collaboration video recently.

Meanwhile, Schnapp recently hinted that his character could become a demogorgon in Stranger Things Season Two.

In the show’s Season One finale, Byers is seen throwing up a large green slug, suggesting his character may not be fully recovered from his traumatic experience in the Upside Down.

Asked what season two holds in store for his character, Schnapp said: “You’ll be seeing more of me. I’ll be there. In the last episode, I threw up a slug, so season two begins with what happens from there. There may have been some effect on him. I may or may not have turned into a monster. You’ll have to watch to find out.”

Earlier this week, Stranger Things actor David Harbour gave a rousing speech at the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards, pledging to “shelter freaks and outcasts” and “hunt monsters”.

The hit Netflix series won the Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series prize at the Hollywood awards ceremony and Harbour – who plays police chief Jim Hopper – used the acceptance speech to deliver a timely plea for inclusivity.

“We are united in that we are all human beings and we are all together on this horrible, painful, joyous, exciting, and mysterious ride that is being alive,” he told the audience. “Now, as we act in the continuing narrative of Stranger Things, we 1983 Midwesterners will repel bullies. We will shelter freaks and outcasts — those who have no hope. We will get past the lies. We will hunt monsters.”

During the speech, co-star Winona Ryder was also spotted pulling a series of comedy faces which Gaten Matarazzo later clarified saying that she couldn’t “hear what Harbour was saying”.
