On May, Stranger Things' Finn Wolfhard (Mike) reveals to fans that he was bullied back in Elementary school.


Back in May 16, during a Fanmio Meet and Greet, a fan asked Finn if he was "ever bullied". The Ghostbusters' star admitted that he was bullied back in elementary school, and described it as "awful":


 "Yeah, I was bullied at school. I was bullied a lot in elementary school. [...] It’s awful."


However, Finn then shared that he dealt with the bullying by distracting himself with the positive things in his life.


 "But for me, I just liked to distract myself with things that I liked."


 "I would say just have something that you’re passionate about that kind of distracts you. And know that [...] you’re gonna grow up one day and you’re gonna remember it as a long time ago."


Meanwhile, another fan asked Finn for advice on how to set foot in the film industry. Finn admitted that he had "got really lucky" with his acting roles, but believes that he would have persevered even if he hadn't gotten his roles in Stranger Things and IT.


 "Sometimes it could be hard. I got really lucky and I’d like to think that if I didn’t get as lucky, I’d keep persevering and stuff."


Finn continued to say that all the rejection would be "worth it" in the end after finally landing a role.


 "I know that's really cheesy, but sometimes people say no to you and lot and it sucks and it makes you really discouraged and makes you hate everything. But it makes it all worth it when someone finally says yes to you as an actor."

 "And so if you really like doing it, you just have to keep doing it and persevering and then one day something will happen."
