Fame has its own perks and cons but when one is a child artist, it seems that the balance hangs a little more to the cons side. While stalking is a common issue with celebrities, it can be a scarier experience for a child artist. Recently, in an interview with a leading magazine, Stranger Things actor Finn Wolfhard revealed his daunting experience of being stalked by an adult fan during his IT days. The incident took place when he was shooting for the film IT after making his debut with Stranger Things. 

Finn Wolfhard talks about his stalking experience

Finn mentioned that when he was just 13-years old, a man followed him to his condo. The actor recalled being alone when he realised that he was being stalked by someone. As Finn Wolfhard started walking faster, the man also increased his pace to match his speed. After following him around for some time, Finn shared that the man suddenly asked him for a selfie and he refused. Finn also asked him to stop following him.
