Noah Schnapp is an American actor. He is best known for portraying Will Byers in the Netflix science fiction horror web television series Stranger Things. His other acting roles include the voice of Charlie Brown in the animated film The Peanuts Movie and Roger Donovan in Steven Spielberg’s historical drama film Bridge of Spies.
Schnapp was born in Scarsdale, New York to Mitchell and Karine Schnapp. He has a twin sister named Chloe. Schnapp is Jewish, his family is from Montreal, Quebec, Canada, and thus he has Canadian citizenship. Schnapp’s desire for acting started when he was about 5 years old after watching the Broadway production of Annie. He performed acting roles in school and community plays. When he was eight years old, his acting teacher suggested he go professional. Schnapp’s parents enrolled him in an acting program at Westchester’s Star Kidz with coach Alyson Isbrandtsen who soon referred him to MKS&D Talent Management for career opportunities.
Schnapp voiced the lead character, Charlie Brown, in 2015’s The Peanuts Movie. Schnapp’s first acting role was in Steven Spielberg’s historical drama film Bridge of Spies, along with Tom Hanks. In 2016 Schnapp was cast as Will Byers in the first season of Netflix science fiction horror web television series Stranger Things. It was reported that according to his contract, Schnapp received US$10,000 per episode in season 1 of Stranger Things. He and co-stars Finn Wolfhard, Gaten Matarazzo, and Caleb McLaughlin competed against one another in a 2017 episode of Spike’s Lip Sync Battle. He was promoted to series regular for the second season of Stranger Things, which premiered on October 27, 2017.
Bridge of Spies is a 2015 historical drama film directed and co-produced by Steven Spielberg, written by Matt Charman and the Coen brothers, and starring Tom Hanks, Mark Rylance, Amy Ryan, and Alan Alda. Set during the Cold War, the film tells the story of lawyer James B. Donovan, who is entrusted with negotiating the release of Francis Gary Powers—a U.S. Air Force pilot whose U-2 spy plane was shot down over the Soviet Union in 1960—in exchange for Rudolf Abel, a convicted Soviet KGB spy held under the custody of the United States, whom he represented at trial. The name of the film refers to the Glienicke Bridge, which connects Potsdam with Berlin, where the prisoner exchange took place. The film was an international co-production of the United States and Germany.
Bridge of Spies was shot under the working title of St. James Place. Principal photography began on September 8, 2014, in Brooklyn, New York City, and the production proceeded at Babelsberg Studios in Potsdam. The film was released by Touchstone Pictures on October 16, 2015, in the United States and distributed by 20th Century Fox in other countries. It was a box office success, grossing $165 million worldwide, and was praised for its screenplay, Hanks and Rylance’s performances, Spielberg’s direction, musical score, and production values. The film received six Academy Award nominations including Best Picture and Best Original Screenplay, and won Best Supporting Actor for Rylance.
