It goes without saying that Will Byers is undoubtedly one of Stranger Things' most mysterious characters on the show.

During season three, fictional character Will, who is played by 15-year-old Noah Schnapp, found himself is a sticky situation as his friends entered into romantic relationships which caused them to drift apart.

Will was one of the show's first children to live within the nefarious Upside Down and managed to retain a mysterious connection with the Mind Flayer ever since.

During one heated exchange between characters, Mike (Finn Wolfhard) snapped: "It's not my fault you don't like girls!"

Ever since then, fans have speculated about Will's sexuality – and now Noah himself has waded into the conversation.

He claimed that Will was young for his age and was still determining his sexual identity after a traumatic period in his life.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly he said: "There's nothing set in stone – some people perceive it as Will could be gay, asexual or whatever."

He added: "Or, like how I see it, he was stuck in the Upside Down, and he was away for so long that all of his friends started growing up while he was in this other world.

"When he came back, everyone was all grown up, and he was still a little kid who still wanted to do little kid things like play D&D, Dungeons & Dragons."

He suggested that a romance of any kind wasn’t on the cards for Will anytime soon.

Speaking openly in the interview, he did suggest that his character Will wasn't likely to find romance soon.

Continuing, he said: "He wasn't ready to face this maturity and get into relationships. So, I think that's what Will is going through right now."

During the lengthy chat, Noah mentioned that he has already read the scrips for season four and he couldn't wait to blast how good they were.

Noah explained: "They are amazing; I can’t wait to see where they go with the rest of the season."

Gushing about his co-stars, he said: "I look forward to this so much, it's my favourite thing in the world, and I love working with these people. It's like a family."

Noah also appeared on the sofa of everyone's favourite chatty lady Lorraine, to discuss his new film Waiting for Anya.

In the discussion he blabbed that season four wouldn't be the last of Stranger Things.
