Noah Schnapp, who is best known for playing Will Byers in Stranger Things, has a summer job working as a lifeguard.
“It’s kind of a ‘just for fun thing,” he explained to Flaunt.
“I’ve kind of grown up with a normal life and normal friends and stuff outside of Stranger Things, so it’s kind of kept me grounded.”
The 17-year-old added that he enjoys living life in a way that is typical of most people his age.
He recently posted a video of him and his family reacting to news of his acceptance to the University of Pennsylvania, where he plans to study business.
“I was thinking of going for acting,” Schnapp further shared.
“Acting was just kind of repetitive, and I wanted to try something new,” he says. “Millie [Bobby Brown] is doing the same thing with her schooling—she’s kind of learning about other things. I thought it would make more sense to do something different. And business was a pretty clear next thing for me.”
The fourth season of Stranger Things recently became only the second show on Netflix to hit one billion viewing hours.
