“I don’t know. But my guess is that maybe he’s going to become evil in the next season. If he’s coughing up these baby Demogorgons, or eggs, or something, maybe he’s incubating or holding these eggs inside of him and he’s trying to fight his good side against his bad side in the next season. That would be cool to see, to see him become evil.
“I mean, there are so many ways Will can go in the next season with how they set it up. But honestly, any way would be pretty cool. But it would be pretty cool to play an evil Will.”
He’s obviously hoping that Will turns to the dark side, and it looks like it possibly could go in that direction. As you know, after he vomits up that nasty monster slug he sits down to dinner and doesn’t say a word about it. About the the scene Schnapps said:
“When I was filming the scene, I was so angry. I wanted Will to tell Joyce so badly! I wanted to see what she would say after. But he hid it from her. So I had to play it like I’m keeping it to myself, where I’m trying to hold it in, where I’m very scared, and I don’t know what’s going on.”
The actor explained that Will is the heart of the group and seeing the heart of the group going bad could be a fun dynamic to play with.
“I think out of the whole group, Will is the heart. He’s the nice one. Obviously, they’re all nice, but Will is the one who cares for all of them. He holds them all together, that big, long-lasting friendship, because he’s so sweet and so easy to talk to.”
Schnapps also talked about what he thinks Will is going through right now after everything he had gone through:
“I think Will’s mind is going crazy right now. So much has happened. He’s seen this crazy monster. He’s been in another dimension. He’s seen this other world. He’s probably thinking: ‘What is happening with me?’ When he comes back, I think he’s trying to fit in and act normal. But he’s trying to hide what’s actually happening to him.”
The young actor went on to say that even though we don’t see Will and Eleven meet in the first season, he thinks maybe they have, explaining:
“Well, I actually think they did meet. In one of the episodes, Eleven sees a picture of me, and she points at it and says, ‘Will.’ So I think maybe one time… maybe I didn’t meet her, but maybe she saw me somewhere. So I’m excited to see if Eleven meets Will in the next season, what would happen there?”
“When I had to pick up the phone, there was a speaker that I didn’t even see, and it played the Demogorgon noise — that roar. I freaked out. It scared me so much. It actually felt so real, that I was really so scared.”
