We could not have seen our favorite character, “Eleven,” as Millie was devastated by her rejection from the HBO hit series “GOT.”
“Winter Is Coming.” It’s October, and literally, winter is coming, but the focus here is the saying from one of the world’s most popular series, Game Of Thrones. The fan following of the show is massive, and unlike Jon Snow, everyone knows everything about this show. But Millie’s fans probably did not know she was going to quit acting!
When Jimmy Fallon interviewed the “Stranger Things” star Millie Bobby Brown on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon, she revealed that she lost the role, and it was quite awful. “I think I was just very disheartened by the rejection, which is something I tell everyone,” is what Millie had to say for the same. Brown was on the show to promote her recent movie on Netflix with Henry Cavil and Sam Claflin, Enola Holmes.
It was later that Millie auditioned for the role of “Eleven,” and we all saw the magic unveil. But it was not the original idea! She auditioned for another show called Montauk, saying that try-out was her last go at the acting path. Approximately two months later, the team got back to Brown on a Skype call. “I Skyped with them and, you know, the rest is history, of course. We then named the show Stranger Things, but Montauk was the one that gave me that kind of hope of doing it all again.”
Millie talked a lot about how her journey hasn’t been as easy, and all glitters as it seems. Like, this industry is just full of rejection, 24/7. You get far more nos – a lot of nos – before you get a yes. I was auditioning for commercials, for anything, really. I then auditioned for Game of Thrones, and I got a ‘no’ for that. Then that’s kind of when I was like, ‘Oh, this is really difficult,’ because I guess I really wanted that role.”
What’s next in the store?
Millie is one of the most popular and celebrated young artists worldwide, and she has earned it hard. Apart from her phenomenal acting performances, Millie has a makeup line called “Florence by Mills.” She has also collaborated with the famous footwear brand, “Converse.” These are just a few to mention. It does not hurt to say, “Her hard work has paid off!!” Enola Holmes was released on 23rd of September and it has been quite a hit!
Fans have been very excited since the teaser for the fourth season of “Stranger Things” was revealed. Millie and other cast members on the show also shared some snapshots of the table read, but the shooting was interrupted by the pandemic. However, sources have stated that the shooting has resumed, and the admirers can’t keep their calm. “I can’t wait to get back to work. I’ve missed playing Eleven so much. She’s always such a challenge to play, and I just miss work, to be honest with you,” Millie said when Jimmy asked about resuming the shoots.
