Noah Schnapp Wasn't Too Happy With His 'Stranger Things' Audition!

Noah Schnapp wasn’t exactly convinced that he landed the role of Stranger Things‘ Will Byers after his audition!

The 13-year-old actor opened up during his new feature for our online magazine RAW. Here’s what he had to say:

On his early acting days and auditioning for the hit Netflix series: “I remember going into the city four times a week for like Chase Bank and McDonald’s commercials. Then I started getting movie auditions, and I remember my first movie was with [Steven] Spielberg and Tom Hanks, which was pretty cool. They taught me all the basics and I just kept going.”

“I remember auditioning for Stranger Things–it was called Montauk when we did it–and I had a horrible headache. It was raining, I was all wet and my ankles were full of mud. I got there and I was so tired. ‘Ugh, please let this be over with,’ I thought and then I got home and I was like, ‘Oh that wasn’t that good. I should’ve done better.’ Then I got a callback and it ended up being my first T.V. show.”

On his first impression of Stranger Things after reading the script: “I just remember reading it and it was just kind of this idea. No one ever thought it was going to do really well and become a big show. It was just like, ‘Okay, we’ll do this. It’ll be a one season thing and few people will watch it.’ Because there weren’t any billboards or advertising!”

Vine Star Jacob Sartorius Wants to Break Justin Bieber's Madison Square Garden Record

Vine star Jacob Sartorius is the latest young celeb to stop by the RAW studios and he’s opening up about some of his bucket list goals.

The 14-year-old singer said that one thing he wants to achieve is breaking the record for the youngest entertainer to sell out New York City concert venue Madison Square Garden.

“I think right now the record is 16 and a half, by Justin Bieber, and I’m 14 and a half, so if you do the math, that’s two years, so I just gotta put out fire music. That’s it,” Jacob said in the interview.

Madison Beer Opens Up About Her Gay Grandfather & Celebrating Pride

Madison Beer strikes a pose for the latest issue of our online magazine RAW!

Here’s what the 18-year-old “Dead” singer had to share with the mag:

On her grandfather’s boyfriend of 20 years recently passing away: “I was just talking about it yesterday with London Pride. My grandfather’s gay and he’s never come out. He lived his whole life in fear, scared of what people would think because it was so unaccepted back then by everyone. And it was obviously illegal. So I was just saying how beautiful it is that times are really changing and even though there’s still people out there that are ignorant and are against people loving who they want to love, it’s awesome to see so many people come together in a city no matter where in the world it is.”

On what happened to her tongue after watching A Christmas Story when she was younger: “(laughs) I was like five or six, and I was left home alone with my nanny and my parents were out to eat dinner. I watched A Christmas Story and there’s a scene where the kid sticks his tongue to the pole and they can’t get it off, and for whatever possessed me to think, ‘Oh my God, I should do that.’ I went to my freezer. I literally can see the picture perfectly and I hope this refrigerator is burning in hell right now. It’s the worst refrigerator ever! (laughs) It was just a little ice box, it was freezing, I went and stuck my tongue to it–like to the point where I literally couldn’t get it off. And I started screaming for the housekeeper. She came upstairs and she thought that I got electrocuted. (laughs) I don’t know why she thought I got electrocuted, and she grabbed me and pulled me off, and I’m not joking, it’s disgusting. Like, layers of my tongue came off and I was gushing blood, so much blood that it was insane and it was so bad. I really don’t recommend sticking your tongue to a freezer anytime soon. 1/10 literally.”

Gregg Sulkin Goes Shirtless & Flashes His Abs for RAW

Gregg Sulkin is getting steamy in his new shoot for the latest issue of our online magazine RAW!

Here’s what the 25-year-old Faking It actor had to share with the mag:

On first wanting to become an actor: “I never wanted to be an actor. I just wanted to play football (soccer), and I just never really took an interest in acting and film. I never took a passion in it until I was about 9 years old and I dressed up as a girl in a school play. (laughs) And then I put socks down my top or a very tight skirt and at the end of the evening, my mum is like, ‘Oh, you’re actually very good!’ I didn’t think anything of it. A couple of years later, my mum told me to go to an audition, and I didn’t want to go, but part of me always thought to myself, ‘A few years ago, that was so fun. I loved that show. I loved doing that one performance.’ And so it was that school play that was the time when I actually caught the acting bug, and I landed my first professional job in England on a movie called Sixty Six.”

On his Dwayne Johnson-esque career goals: “So many. I feel like I haven’t even started. (laughs) You know how Dwayne Johnson is right now? I would love to basically replicate his career. I would like to own a production company that had 30 different projects going on all at once. I love acting, I’ve always been so grateful for people to hire me as an actor, but at the same time, I just love the whole production side of stuff. I’m also a bit of a control freak so I thought I could actually be quite good at assembling a whole 100 people together putting their best foot forward doing a show or a movie.”

Gregg also revealed that he loves writing poetry and songs in his free time, he wants as many kids as he can afford, and more! Head to RawPages.com to hear what he had to say.
