From all the experiences we enjoy while watching our favorite shows, the part where we get to see flashbacks and younger versions of characters has to be the most amazing. There is a sense of nostalgia we feel when we travel back in time with them. And that is why when the fourth season of Netflix’s most celebrated series Stranger Things took us back to young Eleven, we were nothing but ecstatic. However, you know the surprising thing about time travel is that it is not actually Millie Bobby Brown who plays the role of her younger self. But then who is?

Well, the accuracy that young Eleven had made us all believe it was some kind of CGI or trickery that gave Millie the ability to play her younger self. But it’s not the case, and recently Stranger Things writers revealed the name of the girl who brought young Eleven to life. However, fans will be happy to know that Millie was working closely with this little girl. So, with no further ado, let’s get to know our young Eleven from Stranger Things Season 4.

The way how season 4 of the Netflix Original progressed, and how we were shown glimpses of young Eleven, it was pretty convincing that Millie Bobby Brown herself portrayed the role. However, to all our surprise, it was some other adorable little girl who brought young El to life. A young girl named Martie Blair played the role of young El.

However, it is probably impossible to keep Millie away from El. Hence; she was the one who directed Martie at every single step of her journey as the young girl from the Hawkins Lab. Even Jamie Campbell Bower, the actor who played Vecna on the show, lauded Millie for her work. “This was a special moment. I remember this so vividly. Huge props to Millie,” Bower wrote in a tweet.
