Millie Bobby Brown has turned into a household name by now. Millie Bobby Brown rose to critical appreciation with her role as Eleven in the widely popular Netflix series Stranger Things. Although she made her television debut earlier with her guest appearance in Once Upon a Time in Wonderland, Stranger Things acted as a major catalyst in her career. Following the Netflix sci-fi project, she got major roles in movies like Godzilla: King of Monsters, Godzilla vs Kong, and Enola Holmes. In a recent interview, the 18-year-old revealed how his parents ridiculously convinced her to audition for the Netflix series.
How was Millie Bobby Brown convinced to do an audition?
In an exciting interview with Allure, Millie Bobby Brown revealed how a casting director back then commented that she is too mature and can’t make it in the industry. She revealed that she was very heartbroken following this incident as it was so hurtful.
“I always knew that I was mature and I couldn’t really help that,” she says. “Going back to what I said earlier about being kind of very lonely in who I was and feeling like no one was quite like me in school and no one was as mature as I was, [hearing that] was really hard because I thought [maturity] was a good thing. And then being told that it wasn’t, that I wouldn’t make it in this industry, it was so hurtful. I got really down about that.”
Following that she added how her parents convinced her to record the tape of her audition for the Duffer Brothers directorial.
“My parents told me, ‘Just do this one last audition on tape and then you can go outside and play with your friends again.’ So I said, ‘Okay, yeah, I should do this one because it looks cool.’”
And what happened after that last audition tape is a tale very well versed to everyone. The psychic kid found in the woods of Hawkins named eleven turned out to be one of the most iconic names in modern pop culture.
