It’s really a story of individuality, too. I have learned a lot from Eleven. Yes, she’s powerful, but she is also a loyal friend and protector. Even though she’s still learning how to use her voice, her resilience, loyalty, and strength inspires me. My message is always to spread love, light, and positivity. The world can be a scary place sometimes, but it’s important to remain hopeful and to be kind to others.

After an actor has been playing a role for a couple of years, it’s not surprising that he or she would begin to see some similarities between themselves and the character they’re playing. It’s no different for Brown. The actress says she has some things in common with her Stranger Things character, Eleven.

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Brown shared some of the relatable moments she shared with her character over the last three seasons. She said one similarity between her and Eleven is that they’re both going through a transition between being a child and becoming an adult. “It’s the in-between of being a kid and being an adult. You don’t really know how to be both. It’s a confusing part of your teenage years,” said Brown.
