“When I was 13, some adults followed me back to my condo when I was shooting ‘It'”, said the “Stranger Things”, star in a new interview with Mastermind magazine.

The popular sci-fi series had just come out when Wolfhard realized that life in the limelight could sometimes be scary.

He continued: “I was by myself. As I walked faster, they walked faster, and I was getting a bit antsy by the time I got to the door. Suddenly, they were like, ‘Hey, dude, can we get a selfie?’ And I was like, ‘No you can’t have a selfie! How about don’t follow children?’”
