Netflix viewers are drawing comparisons between bad boy Billy Hargrove and Hollywood actor, Zac Efron.
Actor Dacre Montgomery returned to our screens recently, as Stranger Things season 3 dropped on Netflix. Not only did his character Billy Hargrove deliver some steamy scenes with Mrs Wheeler actress, Cara Buono, viewers got to learn a bit more about his character's tragic past, and what led him to become such a bully later on.
And while viewers were gripped by the bad boy's harrowing storyline, there was one thing that was distracting them - Dacre's uncanny resemblance to 17 Again actor, Zac Efron.

The revelation isn't new. In fact, there was a whole theory back in season 2 that Billy is actually Zac Efron's real dad. But one Netflix viewer wrote: "I think Billy on Stranger Things is the Dollar Store Zac Efron."
Another added: "Billy from Stranger Things looks like if Zac Efron lived down on the shore."
A third chimed in: "Watching Stranger Things again anyone else think Billy looks like Troy Bolton this is strange."
Here are our favourite reactions to the revelation so far...
