Stranger Things star clears up Mike’s ‘sexuality’ comment to Will Byers

Stranger Things star Finn Wolfhard has addressed Mike Wheeler’s off-hand comment to Will Byers in the latest season, which many viewers believe confirmed the character’s sexuality.

In the third episode of season three, Will storms off after Mike and Lucas abandon their plans to play Dungeons & Dragons to hang out with their girlfriends.

As Mike catches up with an upset Will, the former remarks: ‘It’s not my fault you don’t like girls.’

The comment has added fuel to speculation Will is gay, but Finn Wolfhard, who plays Mike, has explained why that might not be the case at all.

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Wolfhard said: ‘There were a lot of different versions of that scene.

‘We tried, “It’s not my fault you don’t like girls yet.” I don’t even know if it had to do with Will’s sexuality; I think Mike was just mad and listing off a genuine fact that he’s not interested.

‘So, I guess we’ll see what it really meant, but it’s all up to the Duffers and what they want to do.’

Earlier in the season, Will also remarks ‘I’m not gonna fall in love,’ to his mum Joyce, which Wolfhard agrees leaves things open to interpretation.

‘There’s definitely options,’ Wolfhard added. ‘He is still suffering from PTSD, and I think a lot of that has to do with trusting people and being able to fall in love.’

Noah Schnapp, who plays Will, also recently addressed the comments, explaining how he believes they simply relate to the character’s unwillingness to grow up.

‘He doesn’t want to move on to dating and relationships yet,’ Noah said. ‘He still wants to be a kid and play in the basement like he did in the old times.’

It’s yet to be confirmed whether the show will return for a fourth season, even though it’s practically certain at this point.

Stranger Things season three is available to stream on Netflix.
