Millie Bobby Brown has quickly established herself as a one of the industry’s most exciting young actresses. Born in Spain to British parents and raised globally, Brown is one of those rare raw talents who has been able to captivate viewers with her engaging performances at such a young age.
After moving to Los Angeles with her parents when she was eight, Brown quickly garnered industry attention and began to audition. She taught herself to speak with an American accent, and booked a small recurring role on the ABC series Once Upon A Time in Wonderland as “Young Alice.”
Brown continued to hone her acting skills, and after a worldwide search for which hundreds of young girls auditioned, booked the pivotal role of “Madison” in the series Intruders for BBC America. The role demanded incredible range from Brown, requiring her at times to play a young girl with strange dreams, to an adult man on a quest for revenge. Following her performance in Intruders, Brown booked guest-starring roles on several hit television shows, including Modern Family, Grey’s Anatomy and NCIS.
Brown is best known for her performance as the iconic “Eleven” in the Emmy-nominated Netflix series Stranger Things, for which she garnered international attention and critical praise. The first season, created by Matt and Ross Duffer, follows the disappearance of a young boy in a small town. “Eleven” is a young girl with many psychokinetic gifts and a mysterious past. Critics applauded Brown’s “note-perfect” (Variety) and “career-launching performance” (The New Yorker), noting how “with few words, she manages to evoke a cacophony of emotion, from terror to tender young love” (Los Angeles Times). Brown and the show were nominated for two Screen Actors Guild nominations for “Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series” and “Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series,” for Season 1 and Season 2 of the show, with the ensemble taking home the award for season one. Brown also received a Primetime Emmy Nomination in the category of “Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series” on behalf of her performance in the first season of the series, and in May 2017, Brown won the first ever “Best Actor in a Show” MTV Movie & TV Award, winning “Best Performance in a Show” for her role for the following season.
Brown made Variety’s 2016 “Power of Young Hollywood” list as an up-and-coming actor to watch, and was named the #1 “Breakout Star” of 2016 by IMDB. She also had the tremendous honor of hosting UNICEF’s star-studded 70th anniversary “youth takeover” event at the United Nations in November 2016, which featured children and young people who have benefited directly from UNICEF’s efforts.
Brown recently wrapped her first feature film role in Michael Doughterty’s Godzilla sequel. The film will be distributed by Warner Brothers Studios/Legendary Pictures on March 22, 2019.
It was recently announced that Brown will produce and star in the franchise series The Myseries of Enola Holmes, based on the popular Nancy Springer book series of the same name. She will star in the title role as the younger sister of famed Detective, Sherlock Holmes.
