Stranger Things Millie Bobby Brown


The Netflix series “Stranger Things” has slowly become a pop culture phenomenon, garnering popular and critical acclaim for its various homages to 80s genre cinema, its committed performances especially from a young, mostly unknown cast, and its air of mystery. One of the series’ biggest fans is actor Aaron Paul, formerly Jesse on Vince Gilligan’s “Breaking Bad,” who has publicly expressed his admiration for the sci-fi show. But recently, Paul had the opportunity to communicate his fandom to one of the stars of “Stranger Things.” For Elle, Paul interviewed Millie Bobby Brown, who played the mysterious telekinetic girl Eleven that unexpectedly arrives in the small town of Hawkins, Indiana.

After Paul gushes over Brown, describing her character as one of the greatest “to have ever graced the small screen,” Brown discusses how she didn’t know she wanted to be an actor, but knew she was a “bit of a drama queen.” She talks about how she looks like the opposite of her character now that her hair has grown back and how she has prescription glasses, but she still occasionally gets recognized. Brown goes on to talk about her aversion to technology (“I could live without my phone”), her love of singing (“I started singing before I started talking”), and her dislike of Eggo waffles, which her character loves (“They are absolutely disgusting.”) Brown also says that she doesn’t know anything about the status of season two, but will inform Paul over Twitter as soon as she’s apprised of the situation. For the full interview, head to the Elle website.
