"Stranger Things 2" is already on Netflix and was off to a good start up until Charlie Heaton was noticeably absent during the premiere party. The 23-year old British actor landed in Los Angeles to attend the said party, but was soon busted for alleged cocaine possession, PEOPLE reported.

After drug-sniffing dogs caught the actor with traces of cocaine on his personal items, Heaton was detained but not arrested. Just Jared reported that he was then "allowed to withdraw his application to enter the U.S. and fly back to London" instead of surrendering to an arrest by the cops. He will be able to make it back to the United States when he reapplies for admission.

Representatives of both Netflix and Heaton have refused to comment on the incident.

Getting to know Charlie Heaton

British actor Charlie Heaton reprises his role as Jonathan Byers in the critically acclaimed Netflix series that broke out last year. Coming back as Jonathan in "Stranger Things 2," Heaton is fairly new to the fame game. In a 2016 interview with Vice, the actor admitted that he identifies with his "Stranger Things" character because both of them were single-handedly raised by their mothers. He shared that he was raised by his mother "on a council estate" and that she "worked really hard" to raise her children. Despite their struggles, the actor admitted that he had a "fine upbringing." He added that there was a "sense of having to get on with things" and "not complain" and that he had to grow up faster than his peers and personally deal with things.

Charlie Heaton on growing up

The "Stranger Things 2" actor added that like Jonathan, he identifies with the fact that one has to be mature enough to deal with certain difficulties in life. Charlie Heaton told Vice, "You learn a lot of life lessons when you grow up in slightly difficult circumstances, where you don't necessarily have everything and you have to make your own way." But Heaton is taking it slow despite the critical acclaim that he and the show have received. He admitted that while comparisons to Dane DeHaan and River Phoenix are amazing, it's also somewhat intimidating, as he admitted those are "huge shoes to fill." Heaton is set to show off more of his acting chops in the upcoming Spanish drama horror film written and directed by Sergio G. Sánchez called "Marrowbone," which debuted during the Toronto International Festival in September and was just released in Spain the same day "Stranger Things 2" arrived. He's also starring next in "The New Mutants" from Marvel, a project produced by "X-Men"'s Simon Kinberg.
