Will Byers, portrayed by Noah Schnapp, is a main character on the Netflix original series STRANGER THINGS.


Will first appears in the episode "The Vanishing of Will Byers". He was at Mike Wheeler's house playing with his friends, when Mike's mom, Karen, said they all needed to go home.

Will rides home, like the other boys, on his bicycle, when a humanoid monster crosses his path. He tries to run from it and ends up crashing his bike into the woods. He leaves his bike and rushes to his house, looking for his family, but there's no one home. He then tries to hide in the shed with a rifle, but the monster is waiting for him. The lights flicker, and they vanish into thin air.

Later in the show, flashbacks are shown. It appears that his relationship with his family was great, except for his dad, Lonnie. In one of Jonathan's flashbacks, it shows him presenting Will some songs. His favorite is "Should I Stay Or Should I Go", by The Clash. This song becomes his mark when it comes to him trying to communicate.
