“Stranger Things” has left a big mark on the audience numbers of Netflix after its surprisingly dark fourth season. The last and penultimate set of episodes brought hawkins its most brutal and horrific threat yet in the form of Freddy Krueger and offered the streaming giant its highest viewing metrics in addition to standout international success. “Squid Game”.
Of course, much of the success of the brothers’ paranormal sci-fi hit Duffer is due to its brilliant cast. David Harbour, Joe Keery, Caleb McLaughlin and Finn Wolfhard have already emerged as stars from their performances in “Stranger Things”but arguably the series’ most prominent star is Millie Bobby Brown.
Playing the mysterious and distant psychic raise, Brown has brought nuance and vulnerability to one of the strongest people in the world.
However, all the success that has followed Brown since landing the role in “Stranger Things” could have been lost if he had followed the first advice he received from a casting director.
A casting director told Brown she was too mature
Millie Bobby Brown sat with Allure for an interview, and she had an amazing story to share involving an encounter with “a powerful casting director” and the unrestrained criticism directed at the young actor.
In short, Brown was “overripe”. To further twist the knife, they also told him that “I wasn’t going to make it in the industry” due to this indisputable fact.
Although Brown, who was only 10 at the time, was understandably devastated by the casting director’s comments, just three months later, she was cast in “Stranger Things”.
Since then, Brown has starred in blockbuster films such as “Godzilla: King of Monsters” Y “Enola Holmes”the latter of which has a sequel on the way, also starring Brown.
Plus, with a final season of “Stranger Things” currently in writing, things are going pretty well for the young actor.
Over and over we hear these stories. And this is not the only story of its kind, for example, Hwang Dong-hyuk, who created the aforementioned Netflix hit “Squid Game”wrote the script 13 years before the show finally premiered.
It just goes to show that if you have a dream, you should never stop chasing it – the road to success can always be just around the corner.
Brown turned his perceived weakness into a strength.
Still, as Millie Bobby Brown struggled to feel comfortable in her own skin and be understood, she took those feelings of alienation and used them to her advantage.
“I enjoyed being different people because I always struggled with my own identity and knowing who I was”Brown said in his interview with Allure.
“I always felt quite alone in a room full of people, like I was one of a kind, like no one really understood me. So I liked [interpretar] characters that people understood [y] that people could relate to because I felt like no one could relate to Millie.”
It’s amazing that Brown was able to use his passion as an outlet for these feelings of awkwardness and loneliness.
She has overcome it all and stands out in her success as a result, and as such, you will likely see the artist back on your screens sooner rather than later.
