Earlier in January, Noah had posted a TikTok video where he had written, "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.'" He captioned the same post, "I guess I'm more similar to Will than I thought." Noah was talking in reference to the Stranger Things character Will Byers, whom he revealed was also gay and in love with his best friend Mike, which played by Finn Wolfhard.
In an interview with GQ, Finn was asked about his friend Noah, where he said, "When I saw it, I just had a big smile on my face... I was just really proud of him." Finn then went on to talk about the equation they share with the process of filming Stranger Things for the past seven years. He also said that they do not necessarily talk every single day but share a deep bond. "We're not on everyday-text vibes in any way... Do you text your cousins every day? Probably not. They're our family. We'll talk on each other's birthdays. We'll talk once in a while. But in the same way that family works, if I ever needed anything, they're there."
