Winona Ryder mentors Noah Schnapp via text message

BANG NEWS – Winona Ryder mentors her 15-year-old co-star Noah Schnapp via text message.

The 47-year-old actress plays Noah’s on-screen mother in the acclaimed Netflix series Stranger Things, and Winona – who made her film debut in the 1986 comedy-drama Lucas – has been eager to offer advice to the up-and-coming actor.

Noah – who plays the role of Will Byers in the show – told Rollacoaster Magazine’s Autumn/Winter edition, “I first remember texting Winona about some scenes and she was talking through it and telling me how she did it.

“She was a child actor so she understands a lot of things I’m doing.”

Noah found shooting season two of the series to be a more enjoyable experience, as he was able to spend more time on set.

He said, “Season two was a lot better, because I got to stay there and live there for eight months.

“I really built close relationships with all the cast members and the crew.”
