- Millie Bobby Brown couldn’t truthfully say that Noah Schnapp looked good with a bowl cut.
- Schnapp has sported the style on all four seasons of “Stranger Things,” despite asking for a change.
- Brown said that Schnapp “put himself in that position” when it came to being stuck with the cut.
Millie Bobby Brown said that “Stranger Things” creators Matt Duffer and Ross Duffer were out to get her costar Noah Schnapp “every day,” dodging questions about whether she thought his bowl cut on the show looked good.
While taking Vanity Fair’s signature lie detector test, Brown answered questions about the popular Netflix series and other aspects of her life. When it came to the matter of Schnapp’s haircut, however, she was recalcitrant.
“Would a best friend let someone have this haircut?” the interviewer asked, sliding a photo of Schnapp in “Stranger Things” season four before her.
“He put himself in that position,” Brown replied.
When asked if she thought whether the Duffer Brothers were “out to get” Schnapp, Brown replied, “every day.”
Brown plays Eleven on “Stranger Things,” the supernatural series that catapulted her into global stardom.
Schnapp plays Will Byers, Eleven’s friend and one of the characters on the show who has suffered the most misfortune. In the show’s first season, he’s abducted by a monster into the Upside Down, a dangerous alternate dimension; later in the series, he watches Eleven and his best friend Mike Wheeler — who Will is also in love with, according to Schnapp — get together. The Duffer Brothers even admitted that they forgot to mark Will’s birthday in season four of the show.
And of course, throughout all four seasons of the show, Will sports a bowl cut despite the fact that Schnapp has asked “so many times” for the Duffer Brothers to change it.
As he told Insider, however, the series creators are “pretty loyal” to the haircut and have told him that it’s “of the times,” fitting in with the show’s 1980s setting.
Brown said that she thought Schnapp “looks great,” but when the interviewer asked her to say that he looked good specifically with the haircut, she couldn’t do so without lying.
“Get the picture out of here,” she said.
