Many young stars have grown into an adult in front of the camera. One such person is Noah Schnapp.
Best known for playing Will Byers in Stranger Things, Schnapp started acting very young. As a result, people have seen his transformation from a young and shy child to a funny and handsome teenager before their very eyes.
And this included his growth spurt as well. Looking at Schnapp in Stranger Things, it is evident that his height and measurements have increased a lot.
In fact, it became a topic of discussion that many people got wrong — including Wikipedia and IMDb.
So, how tall is Noah Schnapp? Here is everything we know about the young star’s height and measurements.
How tall is Noah Schnapp?
As of 2022, according to IMDb, Schnapp’s height is 5ft 8½ inches (1.74 m). But previously, they had his height as 5ft 9 inches (1.75 m), and many tabloids have reported the same.
In fact, when replying to his fans on GQ’s Actually Me series on October 26, 2020, he reacted to his measurements as listed by IMDb. He said that he was 5ft 9 inches at the moment.
However, he revealed that he had recently gone to the doctor, who said he still had time to grow. He then replied to a comment on Quora, which asked if Schnapp would be taller than his co-star, Finn Wolfhard, in Season 4 of Stranger Things.
According to IMDb, Wolfhard stands 5ft 10 ½ inches tall, around 1.79m.
The Bridge of Spies star said that Wolfhard was tall and wished to be as tall as him. He added that he hoped to be around 6ft tall or even 5ft 11 inches so that he could “round it up.”
Schnapp is just 17 at the time of writing, so it seems like he still has time to grow. So, it is likely that his height and measurements may hike up in the future.
Noah Schnapp’s bio
Schnapp, who celebrates his birthday every year on October 3, has been interested in acting since a young age.

They auditioned four times each week for a whole year with no success. But eventually, Schnapp got his big break when he was ten as Tom Hank’s son in Bridge of Spies.
Since then, he has starred in many projects like The Peanuts Movie, We Only Know So Much, Hubie Halloween, Waiting for Anya, and of course, Stranger Things.
Schnapp is not just limited to movies and series. He is equally active on social media, especially TikTok, and has a massive fanbase.
As of 2022, the actor accumulated around 30 million followers on TikTok. Schnapp’s fame grew to the point that he was recognized more for his TikTok videos than for his acting.
