Noah Schnapp becomes a star with ‘Stranger Things’ season 2
    2017-November-8  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

凭借“怪奇物语2”, 诺亚·施耐普声名大噪

Noah Schnapp — who knew? Apparently the folks behind “Stranger Things” knew the 13-year-old actor had the chops to pull off the emotional arc in season two.

“When we hired him, we knew he was incredible and we knew we were going to underutilize him in season one. We just said to him, trust us, your time is coming. Well, season two got here and his time came and he crushed it,” director and executive producer Shawn Levy said.

Season two of “Stranger Things” picks up roughly a year after the events of the first season. Will Byers (Schanpp) is back among the living, hanging with his friends, but having visions of the Upside Down. After spending the majority of season one off screen or in coma, season two presented an opportunity for Schnapp to flex his acting muscles. This kid can do from afraid to creepy in the blink of an eye. There was some serious range shown.

“It’s so cool,” Schanpp told E! News. “Because the way you find out is you just turn the page and all of a sudden, ‘Oh, the monster’s in me! OK.’ I was so excited to be a bigger part of this season.”

But then this tween actor, who just turned 13, is hardly a newcomer. “I was working with Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg when I was 9 years old,” Schnapp told Entertainment Tonight in an earlier interview, referring to his role as Hanks’ son in the Oscar-winning “Bridge of Spies.” And in 2015, Schnapp also embodied the iconic Charlie Brown in “The Peanuts Movie.”

Not that success has gone to Schnapp’s head. “I take the school bus,” the boy says of his morning commute.

Despite the fact that Schnapp seems wise beyond his years, there is no doubt that he is, in fact, still just a kid. “Even me being in this TV show, I’m still scared,” Schnapp says of watching “Stranger Things.” “When the monster is creeping up behind me, I’m like, ‘Ah! I can’t watch’!” Meanwhile, millions of other viewers can’t look away.

ET: You’ve been acting since the age of 6. What do you consider to be your big break?

Noah Schnapp: Honestly, I think it’s “Stranger Things.” This is one of my biggest projects and it is my first TV show. I mean, it hasn’t changed my life yet, but my life is not the same as it used to be. I am still a normal kid, but when I’m walking on the street, there will be people who ask me to sign a poster or take a picture with them.

ET: What presented the biggest acting challenge for you: Playing Tom Hanks’ son in “Bridge of Spies,” Charlie Brown, or Will Byers?

Schnapp: Will Byers. I was biking in one scene, [fell] off my bike and ran away from the Demogorgon [a monster] all the way home. Those kinds of scenes are very challenging when you have no words and you’re running and the whole scene is based on your emotions.

ET: How did Spielberg’s directing style compare to the Duffer brothers?

Schnapp: They’re both amazing directors in their own ways. But Mr. Spielberg was an amazing director because he was always balanced. He gives [actors] a chance to do their own things. He still gives them direction and tells them what to do, but he still lets them do their own thing at the same time, which I think is pretty amazing.

Mr. Duffers don’t really do it that way. They’re great directors; they have a very specific vision of what they want to see. (SD-Agencies)
