Rewriting Millie Bobby Brown’s Grateful Send-Off for ‘Stranger Things’
Millie Bobby Brown looks back on her time on the Netflix hit show “Stranger Things” with gratitude but no regrets. The star – and Glamour’s 2020 Woman of the Year – has already put the series behind her, saying in an interview before the actors’ strike that saying goodbye to the show is like graduating high school.
“I’m ready to say, ‘Thank you, and goodbye’,” said Brown, whose breakout role playing Eleven on the show has earned her fame and recognition around the world. She acknowledges that the show has given her “the tools and the resources to be a better actor” – but she’s got plenty of other projects on the go, too.
In addition to acting, Brown has a production company, is promoting her debut novel, and has launched her own beauty line Florence by Mills. She’s also set to marry Jon Bon Jovi’s son, Jake Bongiovi, when they turn 21.
Though some people might say they’re too young for marriage, Brown points out that they have both had great role models for lifelong relationships in their parents. “We were modeled wonderful, loving relationships,” Brown said. “So it’s something that we both had that mutual drive for.”
