The third season of Stranger Things has recently landed on Netflix and we thought, for the occasion, to gather in this article some interesting facts about the actress Millie Bobby Brown AKA Eleven, considered to all intents and purposes the true discovery of this TV series.
Before becoming the most beloved character in the series written and directed by the Duffer Brothers, Millie Bobby Brown has a long career to show her great talent. Of English origins, but born in Barcelona, raised in Orlando, at the age of 13 she is one of the youngest actresses nominated for Emmys.
1 – CONGRATULATIONS OF STEPHEN KING
After a few episodes of Once Upon A Time in Wonderland as Alice’s young version, Brown participated in the Intruders series, in which she played Madison O’Donnell.
On Twitter (social media that Stephen King particularly loves) he commented on the work of Millie Bobby Brown writing: Millie Brown, the girl in INTRUDERS, is terrific. Is it my imagination, or are they a better actor than they used to be?
Millie Brown, Intruders girl is magnificent. Is it just my imagination or are children actors much better than they used to be?
2 – A CINEMA KISS
Millie Bobby Brown said her first kiss was in the shoes of Eleven. The girl said that before kissing Finn Wolfhard (Mike) on the set of Stranger Things, I had never kissed anyone. Your comment? It was horrible, backstage they were all looking at us.
3 – AN INCREDIBLE ALIEN
You will practically be an alien.
The Duffer Brothers chose the young actress for the role of Undici, looking for an actress who could play the character who remembered ET, retracing the 80s tones of the series. Another rule for playing the role was shaving her hair. In the second season, the girl shows herself far from scientific experiments and with curly hair that is the natural hair of the actress.

Eleven, despite being the character that moves the events of the series, has only 42 characters in the first season. Millie Bobby Brown has however been able to demonstrate her natural talents.
