Millie Bobby Brown did a trick to do nosebleed scenes in Stranger Things

In one of her interviews with James Corden on The Late Late Show, Millie Bobby Brown came with Lily James to have a chit-chat. During the conversation, James asked Millie about how she controls the drip of blood.

In response to the question, she said: “It’s just a pot of blood and it’s got a squeezy bottle. Then you just lift up your head, you squeeze it in.” Moreover, Millie added that after putting the corn syrup in the nose, she asks everyone to be ready and take the shot quickly. “And then if it comes, and if it doesn’t then I’ve screwed up my timing!” added Millie.
