NOAH Schnapp has taken a swipe at Stranger Things bosses for upholding his iconic retro haircut.
The teen star was shot to fame on the hit Netflix show, but there’s one aspect of his character Will Byers he can’t get on board with – his bowl but.
Schnapp appeared on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon to discuss the upcoming fourth season and the US host couldn’t resist paying tribute to the dated ‘do.
He branded Will’s hair "one of the best things on television," which Schnapp quickly corrected: "One of the worst."
The actor confessed that he’d begged the hair and makeup department to shake up his look, but his pleas fell on deaf ears.
"I can't begin to explain… I literally ask them all the time, 'Why doesn't Will, maybe he shaves his head?'” he recalled.
“But really, did everyone have that haircut in the 80s? Who would choose to have that haircut?"
Stranger Things has earned countless praise from viewers for its authentic 80s aesthetic, however given the pattern of time jumps between series, it’s possible that season 4 could stretch into the early 90s.
The comments come after Schnapp spoke about Will’s sexuality last month, following plenty of fan speculation.
Will found himself at odds with some of his pals in season 3 as they began to form romantic relationships and drift apart.
During one heated exchange, Mike (Finn Wolfhard) snapped: "It's not my fault you don't like girls!"
Noah explained that Will was simply young for his age and was still determining his sexual identity after a traumatic period in his life.
"There's nothing set in stone – some people perceive it as Will could be gay, asexual or whatever,” he told Entertainment Weekly.
"Or, like how I see it, he was stuck in the Upside Down, and he was away for so long that all of his friends started growing up while he was in this other world,” he continued.
"When he came back, everyone was all grown up, and he was still a little kid who still wanted to do little kid things like play D&D [Dungeons & Dragons].
He suggested that a romance of any kind wasn’t on the cards for Will anytime soon.
"He wasn't ready to face this maturity and get into relationships. So, I think that's what Will is going through right now," he concluded.
Stranger Things fans recently went wild as producers dropped their first behind-the-scenes look at season 4.
Stranger Things seasons 1-3 are available to stream on Netflix now.
