Stranger Things star Noah Schnapp is officially TikTok famous.

While discussing how the Stranger Things star's cast mates feel about his newfound app fame to Variety, Schnapp revealed, "They appreciate my TikToks but it’s not for them. I always text Finn [Wolfhard] and say, 'Do a TikTok dance with me. People would love to see that.' But I got Millie [Bobby Brown] on there and it really took off. I’m getting them one by one."

Speaking of Stranger Things, Schnapp is apparently such a legit TikTok sensation, that some fans have no idea he's on the series. The actor claimed age might have something to do with his one, explaining, "I find that so funny. Some people come up to me in public and they’re like, “Oh my God, are you Noah from TikTok?” It’s so weird to get recognized for that. I think it’s the really young fans who have never even heard of Stranger Things."

The actor has more than 11 million followers, and a few theories on how he's turned TikTok upside down in addition to his moves with Brown. Noah admitted, "When I first got it I told all my Instagram followers to follow me and I got a few million followers." The Stranger Things star added that he believes the key to his TikTok success is that he sincerely enjoys himself, and of course, came up with a signature dance.

Noah's TikTok bio says "downloaded as a joke now i’m addicted," proving that even A-list celebrities can be just like us.
