A legend.

2017 saw a bunch of your favourite TV stars become international legends. One of those people was Stranger Things' Finn Wolfhard. Finn had an absolutely killer year, this year. He starred in the highest grossing horror movie of all time, then went on to smash the second season of his TV show AND he started his own band.

Finn was also voted 'Hero of the Year' in the PopBuzz Fan Awards so we thought we'd compile a list of the most iconic moments Finn gave us in 2017. A legend. Truly.

1) When he started one of the biggest Twitter beefs of 2017 and ended beauty Youtuber James Charles for tweeting in the cinema while watching - and criticising - IT.

2) When he pretended to be a middle aged business man who just discovered vlogging.

3) When he performed as part of a Motown quintet with his cast mates on James Corden and NAILED his choreography.

4) When he started his own band and his on-screen sister Natalia Dyer filmed him shredding on stage.
