Interview Magazine punked Millie Bobby Brown out, and we can get over how cool she is. Seriously, the look is perfect for the British actress who plays Eleven in Stranger Things, because she IS totally punk rock. At just 12-years-old, Brown is confident in who she is, firm in what kind of life she wants to lead and the work she loves to do, she’s a multi-talented hyphenate, and despite becoming a near over-night sensation, she’s remained grounded and happy.
Born in Marbella, Spain, Brown grew up all over – Bournemouth, England, Orlando, Vancouver, and Los Angeles. She began acting just three years ago, when she was nine years old. A few days after Stranger Things hit Netflix, she met Maddie Ziegler backstage at So You Think You Can Dance, and the two became fast friends.
Ziegler interviews Brown, and we learn so much about her. Here are a few of our favorite quotes:
Of Brown’s Stranger Things co-stars:
Brown gets night terrors, which she confessed to Maddie on their first sleep over.
ZIEGLER: This was Millie’s first proper sleepover, and she kind of has some night terrors, and I had never seen them before, and I didn’t know how to handle it. I was like, “What do you do if you have them?” You said you scream a lot and try to climb up the walls. And I was like, “What do I do to help you?” And you were like, “You just have to slap me really hard.” So we practiced on each other, and I was like, “Is this how hard I would slap you?”
