Speaking with Mastermind Magazine, Wolfhard, now 17, revealed that when he was 13-years-old while filming IT: Chapter One in Toronto, two adults followed him home, "Stranger Things had just come out, and 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?’”
Wolfhard also spoke about a time when his taxi was followed by a "pretty relentless" individual. He also recalled that his former band, Calpurnia, had to "stop shows because people were getting crushed" — highlighting how overeager fans can often create dangerous situations.
In the full interview, which is now available here to read, Wolfhard also goes into details his audition process for the upcoming, Ghostbusters: Afterlife film and prepping to direct his first short film. Up next, Wolfhard is set to star in the directorial debut of Jeremy Schaulin-Rioux's feature film, Rules for Werewolves.

In 2017, when Wolfhard was only 14, he received criticism for being "heartless" in a now-deleted twitter video of him denying requests for photos and autographs to fans waiting outside his hotel went viral. After receiving support from other young actors, including Sophie Turner and former “Stranger Things” co-star Shannon Purser, the “Ghostbusters: Afterlife” star took to Twitter to tell fans to stop harassing him and his castmates.
