English actress and model Millie Bobby Brown was born on February 19, 2004. She gained notoriety for her portrayal as Eleven in the science fiction drama series Stranger Things (2016) on Netflix, for which she received a Primetime Emmy nomination at the age of 13 for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series. She is also the eldest individual to have ever appeared on the TIME 100 list.
The third of Kelly and Robert Brown’s four children, Millie, was born in Marbella, Andalusia, Spain. Her parents are English. Around the time Brown was four years old, the family relocated to Bournemouth, Dorset; four years later, they moved to Orlando, Florida. A top Hollywood talent scout called Millie’s parents to tell them that “she has instincts you cannot teach” while Millie was attending acting workshops in this location on a Saturday. Millie’s parents told her that she could “mix it with the best kids in Hollywood.” After packing up and driving from Orlando to Los Angeles, Millie was meeting with the top children’s talent agencies in the city within a week. All the agencies she spoke with offered to represent her. Within
Intruders, a paranormal drama-thriller on B.B.C. America, gave Millie the part of Madison O’Donnell in November 2013 after just one self-taped audition and without having met the producers or directors (2014). In the following years, she made cameos in the A.B.C. sitcom Modern Family (2009), the C.B.S. procedural program NCIS (2003), and the A.B.C. medical drama Grey’s Anatomy (2005). In the 2016 season of the science fiction drama Stranger Things on Netflix, Brown portrayed Eleven. Because of the positive reviews for her performance, she was nominated for both the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series and the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series.
On Friday, Millie Bobby Brown shared a couple of behind-the-scenes images from the recent season of Stranger Things that had been captured during filming. With a stupid grin pasted on her face, the 18-year-old performer was seen in the first picture clutching a handheld fan and blowing toward her castmate Sadie Sink, who was lying in a hospital bed. In her second amusing image, her co-star and close friend Noah Schnapp is seen allegedly “eating a cracker from Sadie’s toe.”
