Charlie Heaton is best known for his role as Jonathan Byers on hit Netflix show Stranger Things, which just premiered its second season. 

The star was flying to LA for the glitzy season two premiere when he was allegedly denied entry due to being in possession of cocaine. 

It’s reported that border officials found traces of white powder on the 23-year-old’s personal items.

A source reportedly told The Sun that it was a “very small amount” of the substance that was found and was confirmed to be cocaine.

Heaton wasn’t arrested but instead was said to have been made fly back to London, causing him to miss the show premiere with his co-stars.

A source told The Sun: “He was not arrested. He was held at the airport for a while and then put back on a plane to London that night. If you are a foreign national and it is a large amount of drugs you may be charged.”

“But if it is personal use, the consequences are that you will not be allowed in to the country. US law is very strict on this.”

If the actor is prevented from entering the US in the future, he could struggle with filming his role on the hit Netflix show. 

A spokesman for US Customs and Border Protection told The Mirror: “Privacy concerns prevent us from discussing individual cases of travellers arriving at US ports of entry.
