Be it Eleven or Enola, when Millie Bobby Brown takes over any character, she leaves no stone unturned to make it iconic. The 16-year-old actress who is much known to the world for her role in Stranger Things, recently revealed in a talk show interaction that she almost quit acting after getting rejected for a particular role in The Game Of Thrones series
Appearing on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Brown revealed that it was a severely disheartening and a tough time for her after getting rejected. She told Fallon, “This industry is just full of rejection 24/7. You get noes, a lot of noes before you get a yes,”
“I was auditioning for commercials, anything really. I then auditioned for ‘Game of Thrones’ and I got a no for that. That’s kind of when I was like, ‘Oh, this is really difficult,’ and I guess I really wanted that role.”
In case you were wondering for what role did Millie exactly audition for, she previously revealed that it was the character of Lyanna Mormont which featured in the last three seasons of the HBO show.
However, She told Jimmy Fallon that it was a certain Netflix show that stopped her from calling it quits “One of my last, kind of, goes at this was this Netflix show called ‘Montauk.’ I auditioned and then, like, two months later they got back to us and said, ‘We’d love to Skype with you’ and then I Skyped with them and the rest is history.”
“Montauk” was the original name for her megahit Netflix show “Stranger Things,” in which Brown plays the prominent role of Eleven.
“Stranger Things” is arguably one of Netflix’s best show to date. With a whopping 31 Emmy nominations across its three seasons to date, Stranger Things is one of the most Emmy nominated Netflix originals. Brown herself has been nominated for two Emmys for the show, both for best-supporting actress in a drama series.
After the fourth season aired, the young actress rose to prominence in the industry for her flawless performance. She was very recently seen playing the role of Sherlock Holmes’ younger sister who sets out to try to find her mom after she goes missing in the film Enola Holmes
In a nutshell, things have worked out pretty well for Millie. Do you think she would have made a good Lyanna? Drop your views in the comment section below
