Stranger Things‘ actor Noah Schnapp knows how to make a first impression.

The 14-year-old actor took home the MTV Movie & TV Awards for Most Frightened Performance at the 2018 awards show — and upon taking to the stage, he said: “Hi, Zendaya.”

“I don’t even know how to put in words how grateful I am to be here,” he added. “To all the fans, thank you so, so, so much.”
