Millie Bobby Brown stars in the Netflix original series, ‘Stranger Things’

This actor appeared in Godzilla: King of the Monsters, Enola Holmes, and Godzilla vs. Kong. Brown is perhaps best known for her role in Netflix’s series, Stranger Things, where she appeared as the Eggo Waffle enthusiast, Eleven.

This actor appeared in three seasons of the sci-fi original and is expected to return for the show’s fourth season. A few years before her Stranger Things stardom, Brown had a brief appearance on ABC’s comedy series, Modern Family.

During the “Closet? You’ll Love It!” episode of season 6, the extended family relaxed in Jay’s backyard when they noticed a drone hovering over Gloria. Phil Dunphy took it upon himself to get rid of it. With the help of Luke and Manny, the three made a plan to trap the drone. 

The problem was that the drone started to fly away. Luke and Phil hopped on bikes to follow it but, without a bike of his own, Manny decided to snatch the bike of a young girl passing by. Brown portrayed that neighbor named Lizzie. 

“Hey Lizzie, OK, I need to borrow this, OK,” Manny Delgado said, grabbing the bike. “I promise to bring it back, alright?”

“No, that’s what you said about my mom’s humidifier,” the young girl shouted back, standing without her bike in the middle of the sidewalk. Eventually, the boys of this comedy series shot the drone down. Technically, Gloria shot it down, saying that some boys just need a little help.

This series included several recurring actors in the Pritchett-Dunphy-Tucker family. Ty Burrell earned the Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for his portrayal of the fun-loving trampolining realtor, Phil Dunphy. 

Sofía Vergara portrayed the kind and outspoken Gloria Delgado-Pritchett. That is, until Modern Family premiered its final episode on the television network in 2020. 

Lin-Manuel Miranda of Broadway’s Hamilton, as the hopeful young inventor Guillermo, was the character who gifted Gloria and Jay with their dog, Stella. Benjamin Bratt, of Disney and Pixar’s animated film, Coco, portrayed Gloria’s ex-husband, Javier Hectoro Delgado, for several episodes. 

Modern Family is available for streaming on Hulu.
