Is Millie Bobby Brown Ready to Move on From ‘Stranger Things:’ Her Reaction to Finishing Season 3 May Spell Sayonara?

Famous for portraying Eleven in the Netflix original Stranger Things, Millie Bobby Brown was a virtual unknown before the nostalgiac sci-fi thriller – reminiscent of every 1980s flick with kids on bicycles – graced the small screen. 

Millie Bobby Brown has been deemed the show’s breakout star. Going on to appear in Godzilla: King of the Monsters, and set to star in the sequel, Brown is slowly transitioning into the film world; however, she’s not only adding big-budget movies to her list of accomplishments.

Brown is the face of Converse and recently launched a Stranger Things–inspired shoe line. With designer brands like Coach and Louis Vitton vying for the young actress’s attention, you can add fashion icon to her resume. Brown boasts a wardrobe that the world envies; from beautiful ball gowns to jeans and sneakers, her various looks hint at the actress’s unique personality. 

Though Millie Bobby Brown may be having the time of her life in Stranger Things, her reaction to finishing up season three was a bit different than her previous reactions. She shared her experience during an interview with Teen Vogue. 

Millie Bobby Brown on finishing season three of ‘Stranger Things: “I was definitely ready to go…” 

During an interview with Teen Vogue, Millie Bobby Brown explained that she cries every time Stranger Things wraps up. However, her experience with season three was a bit different. Brown’s excitement to take on her new role – in a big Hollywood movie – seemed to trump her sadness. She stated:

“When I leave, I cry. I’m the only one that’s full-on sobbing. I just can’t. And especially wiping off my tattoo at the end of shooting makes me cry even more. But this season, three, the last day, I was like, dye my hair black. Wipe this off. I was definitely ready to go and be Madison [in Godzilla]. I was like, pierce my ears. I need them done. Yeah. But I was really sad too.”

Though Millie Bobby Brown reported feeling “really sad,” she was ready to shift into her next character. She was excited to take on Godzilla. Can anyone blame her? As the breakout star of Stranger Things, fans cannot expect Brown to stay on TV forever; she’s likely hoping to become an award-winning movie star.

That sheer sense of excitement – with time – will grow to outweigh the sadness associated with leaving Stranger Things. This time, it was Godzilla: King of the Monsters. Next time, it may be an Oscar-worthy role. Brown may be forced to leave Stranger Things sooner than later, to safeguard the rapid career growth she is managing with an inspiring degree of poise, maturity, and grace.

Millie Bobby Brown’s future projects outside ‘Stranger Things’ 

At 15 years old, Millie Bobby Brown is set to produce Enola Holmes alongside Legendary Productions. As if this girl hasn’t already done enough, she will co-produce and star in a movie about Sherlock Homles’ sister.

Millie Bobby Brown, as mentioned above, will also star in Godzilla vs. Kong in 2020, and is set to star in The Thing About Jellyfish. While the latter was only recently announced, Enola Holmes has begun filming, and Godzilla vs. Kong is in post-production. 

With a career that’s showing no signs of slowing down, Brown will continue finding offers on her desk. The more appealing they become, the more she will wish to take, and the less time she will have for Stranger Things. 

Though Brown rose to fame on the back of Eleven, she will only soar to stardom if she puts her celebrity to good use while she’s in the spotlight. Hollywood is a fickle industry; if you say no now, you may not be asked again later.
