‘Stranger Things’ Star Millie Bobby Brown Says She Wants a Wedding for Eleven and Mike
Cue the wedding bells? Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown has some thoughts on how she hopes things turn out for her character Eleven on the hit Netflix series, and it involves a walk down the aisle with another important figure from the show.
Millie Bobby Brown wants Eleven to get married
Brown chatted with Glamour UK ahead of the Sept. 23 release of her Netflix film Enola Holmes, where she plays the younger sister of detective Sherlock Holmes. She also shared some thoughts on Stranger Things and her hopes for Eleven. They involve a happy ending for her and Mike (Finn Wolfhard).
[S]he loves Mike – I want them to get married, she said. “That’s what I need. I need a wedding scene for Stranger Things, period.”
She hopes better things are in store for Eleven in ‘Stranger Things’ Season 4
Brown also hopes things start looking up for Eleven in Stranger Things Season 4. Her character had a rough go of it in season 3. When the season began, she was getting into fights with her adoptive father Hopper (David Harbour). Then, she broke up with Mike for a time. In the season’s final episodes, she was seriously wounded when facing off against the Mind Flayer, which caused her to lose her telekinetic powers. Plus, she believes she’s lost her surrogate dad after Hopper apparently died while closing the gate to the Upside Down. In the finale, Eleven is taken in by Joyce Byers (Winona Ryder) and her son Will (Noah Schnapp) and they move away from Hawkins.
“Oh my god, she’s been through so much, I just hope she’s happy,” Brown said.
“I always say to the Duffers, ‘Can she just not smile like in one take?’ I would love her story to be rounded off by like a good ending. I trust the Duffer brothers so much that it’s going to be beautiful and I’m going to love it no matter what it is,” she added. “But I’d love for her to get her powers back because she is a hero, she is like a super woman in a way.”
The next season of ‘Stranger Things’ had been delayed, but that may not be a bad thing
Unfortunately, fans will have to wait a bit to find out if Brown’s dreams for Eleven come true. Season 4 of Stranger Things has been delayed due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Though filming had begun on the next installment of the sci-fi/horror series, production shut down in March. But that’s not necessarily a bad thing, Brown’s co-star Natalia Dyer told the Hollywood Reporter. The unexpected delay has given the show’s writers a chance to finish scripts for all episodes ahead of filming, which isn’t usually the case.
“Normally, we get the first few scripts, and then they have to keep writing due to the schedule of it,” Dyer explained. “And it takes a while to craft a script. So, normally, there’s a kind of ‘writing as we’re going,’ but it seems they’ve had enough time. I think it’s maybe been a blessing for the writers, in some way, because they had the time to just sit down, think and create.”
A tweet from the show’s writers seemed to indicate that they’d finished work on season 4 scripts. Not only that, it looks like the next season will have nine episodes instead of the usual eight. As for what twists and turns next season holds, viewers will just have to wait and see. But Dyer says she can’t wait to get back to work.
“I’m very, very excited for when we do go back,” she said. “I’m excited by the scripts. I’m excited for everything that this season is going to be.”
