"The thing is, I get asked when I first knew I wanted to act so often, and I genuinely can't answer it. It's just... I got the bug, and that's it."

Millie Bobby Brown (born February 19, 2004 in Marbella, Spain) is a British actress and model who resides in the United States. She was born with partial hearing loss in one ear, before gradually losing the rest there.

At a very young age, she met a well-respected Hollywood talent scout who informed her parents that she had instincts that couldn't be taught. After a series of small parts, she has gained worldwide fame for her role as Eleven in the Netflix superhit series Stranger Things. She made her big screen debut in Godzilla: King of the Monsters in 2019 and landed the role of Enola Holmes.



This actress' roles include the following tropes:

  • Creepy Child:
  • Does Not Like Shoes: She's done a fair few interviews and photoshoots barefoot. In one interview, when looking at a photo of her at a party with the caption "typical me: shoes come off in 5 minutes", she responded by showing she was barefoot at that moment and said "I take my shoes off. I don't like having shoes on. Shoes are not my thing."

  • Ooh, Me Accent's Slipping: Averted; her American accent for Eleven in Stranger Things is spot on and aside from when she laughs has never made a mistake keeping it. It's helpful that she spends half her time in America; in fact, she's apparently so used to using an American accent that she had to relearn her British accent for her role in Enola Holmes.
  • Screaming Woman: Screams a lot in Stranger Things.
  • Younger than They Look: There are times when she looks as though she's in her mid-to-late-20s, when in reality, she's in her late teens.
