Millie Bobby Brown is among the most well-known and sought-after actresses today. With an impressive portfolio to flaunt, her role as Eleven from Stranger Things will always be the most special. Barely 12 years old during season 1 of the fantasy series, a lot of Brown’s personality must have developed on the show itself. Perhaps sharing the screen and the set with mostly boys even influences her persona.

While riding the success of the hugely popular first season of Stranger Things, Brown opened up about her experience on the sets and with her cast members. She even spoke about her views on her own personality. Let us see what the young actor had to say.

Back in 2017, Millie Bobby Brown did an exclusive interview for a fundraiser titled SAG-AFTRA Foundation.

Millie narrated how initially she was skeptical about being part of a mostly boys’ cast. “Oh boys, I’m not ready for this,” she acted out with hilarious, exaggerated actions and modulations.

The British actor even admitted that she is, in fact, very similar. “I think I am a tomboy. Like today I wore just like a sweater,” said the conflicted Bobby Brown.
