Millie Bobby Brown basically launched into stardom out of nowhere. The relatively unknown teen made landed her breakout role in 2016’s premiere season of Stranger Things. Since then, she’s stuck with the show, proving herself to be an incredibly capable actor. However, she hasn’t limited herself to Stranger Things by any means — Millie Bobby Brown has been growing her acting and modeling portfolio, and needless to say, her bank account. So how much money is the 15-year-old star worth?
Godzilla nets her a hefty check
Millie Bobby Brown made her feature film debut with Godzilla: King of the Monsters. Fans were surprised and excited — the star is well-loved. In fact, Brown was excited herself. She told Variety, “It’s kind of unreal. I’m like, ‘What is happening right now?’ It’s so bizarre and unreal, and I never thought I’d be doing this. I really didn’t.”
While visiting the Hollywood Boulevard, Brown said, “I used to actually walk down here and look at this [theater] and my dad used to say, ‘ This is where they do premieres. And now I’m here.”
Director Michael Dougherty called it an “honor and a privilege” to work with Brown. “Millie is actually an old soul. So as much as she looks like, you know, your average 15-year-old, she has a wisdom and a strength about her that is rare,” said Dougherty.
So how much did Brown earn for her successful debut? According to documents obtained by The Blast, she netted a hefty $1,000,000, “plus a cut of the back end.”
The Sims and modeling help too
Brown has also expanded her work into other avenues where available. The star began a modeling career, debuting with Calvin Klein for their “By Appointment” campaign. Afterward, she signed with IMG models in 2017. Clearly, the teen has some hustle.
While the numbers on the checks she pulled in from these jobs aren’t for us to know, we’re sure it was a welcome addition to her savings. Talk about a college fund.
In addition, Brown announced a 2018 collaboration with EA Games for The Sims 4. A portion of this collaboration was called the “Positivity Challenge,” because of course Millie Bobby Brown would do that. Again, the details on her paycheck aren’t clear here, but you can rest assured it was big.
‘Stranger Things’ rakes in the cash
Now for the foundation of Millie Bobby Brown’s success — none other than Stranger Things, her breakout role. When the show first began with Season 1, Brown and the other children were earning roughly $30,000 per episode each.
With eight episodes in Season 1, that means Brown earned approximately $240,000. Obviously, that can’t hold a candle to her earnings on Godzilla, but that’s an excellent paycheck for a debut young actor. Add Season 2 to the mix with nine episodes, and Brown has pulled in roughly $510,000 dollars.
However, Brown and the other actors recently renegotiated their salaries. Now, Brown will be earning roughly $250,000-300,000 per episode, putting her at $2 million for Season 3. So where does that leave Brown’s net worth?
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Millie Bobby Brown currently has a net worth of roughly $4 million. That’s sure to grow quickly, as this star is clearly ascendant.
