Months have passed by now with Stranger Things ending its season four run on Netflix. Collaterally, months have also run past the show’s deadline for producing its fifth and final season owing to the SAG-AFTRA strikes. Amidst the uncertainty of when and what is to happen, the star-studded cast of the show stands disassembled. Amidst this dry spell, a dose of debate, stun, and awe has come forth for the fans.

Sending the fandom into a tizzy is the on-screen love interest of Millie Bobby Brown’s Eleven, Finn Wolfhard. The top-billed cast of Stranger Things star was recently spotted in Paris. Sporting a spectacular jawline and luscious locks, the 20-year-old recently took fans by surprise when a fan posted a selfie with him. While it was nothing unusual in words, the striking resemblance between the two was certainly uncanny.
