Stranger Things’ Noah Schnapp has signed with CAA, The Hollywood Reporter has exclusively learned. He was previously with Innovative.
The disappearance of Schnapp’s Will Byers was the inciting incident and driving focus of the Netflix series’ breakout first season, but it was in season two that the actor himself took center stage. He shares a SAG Award and nomination with the rest of the drama’s ensemble.
Schnapp made his acting debut in 2015 opposite Tom Hanks in Steven Spielberg’s Bridge of Spies, and a month later voiced Charlie Brown in Fox’s animated The Peanuts Movie. Next up is the title role in Fernando Grostein Andrade’s indie family feature Abe, in which he stars as a half-Palestinian Arab, half-Israeli Jewish boy trying to bring both sides of his family together over a meal.
