The woman behind the legend that is Barb has revealed her sexuality in a touching tweet.

While everyone who's anyone is still trying to guess what's going to happen in the next season of Stranger Things, one of its primary cast members, Shannon Purser, has taken to Twitter to share some personal thoughts about her life.

The 19-year old actress, who rose to fame for playing Barb in the Netflix-original drama, has previously got candid about her sexuality in a series of messages on her Twitter account earlier in the month.

Purser started her emotional message with "Getting comfortable with your sexuality is a process. It's going to be ok. I wish I'd known that sooner.

"Another thing I wish I'd known about sexuality is to take it slow. It can define you as much as you want it to."

The teen star, who can also be seen in Riverdale, ended with some motivational words for her followers, saying "But it's gonna be ok. You're going to be ok. No, you're going to be great."

Just when we thought we couldn't love Barb anymore...
