Millie Bobby Brown – the actress behind the famous Eleven in Stranger Things – seems to have cast a spell over the internet. Meaning, if she appears on Jimmy Fallon or tweets out a relatable message, it’s bound to go viral.
While Millie Bobby Brown’s character on Stranger Things is worthy of praise – as she seems to eschew manic pixie dreamgirl tropes in favor of a more captivating character and narrative complexities – her personality in real life is at the center of her appeal. She wears sneakers on the red carpet and boasts one of the most contagious personalities. However, she has Stranger Things to thank for putting her on the map.
Before Stranger Things, Millie Bobby Brown was a virtual unknown; she appeared in an episode of Modern Family and Grey’s Anatomy,but was by no means the fun-to-say household name she is today. At 15 years old, she boasts a loyal fan following – covering a diverse demographic in terms of age, gender, and more. In Hollywood, fame, and fortune tend to come as a package deal. So, now that Millie Bobby Brown is famous, just how much is she making per episode of Stranger Things?

Season one of Stranger Things consisted of eight episodes and season two consisted of nine, so, at the least, we can assume that Millie Bobby Brown will make upwards of $2 million off the show’s third season alone.
