"Consent is important, This is not the cute story you think it is": Millie Bobby Brown Was Slammed For Kissing Co-star Louis Partridge in Enola Holmes

Millie Bobby Brown has achieved so much at a young age. Followed by small appearances on several TV shows and films, Brown starred as the lead in the 2016 supernatural horror drama Stranger Things. The show brought the British actress to the limelight and more new opportunities. She has since starred in multiple films and even received two Primetime Emmy nominations. However, becoming the face of one of the leading shows in the OTT space and attention doesn’t have a positive impact only.
