Millie Bobby Brown Reveals Bizarre Reason She Was Told She Wouldn’t Make it as an Actress


Millie Bobby Brown is opening up about her meteoric rise to fame in a new interview with Allure, including an anecdote about one casting director who told her she’d never make it as an actress for a really bizarre reason.

Brown, who grew up in several locales, including Spain, England, and Orlando, FL, didn’t always know she wanted to be an actress. It was during a Christmas performance she realized how happy being on stage made her. The Stranger Things star’s parents warned her, “‘Well, it is a job. And if you commit to it, you have to commit to it. You can’t audition and then give up,” she told the publication. “So I was like, ‘I don’t care. Whatever it takes, I want to act.’”
