There are some actors who inspire you merely by their journey. We have many actors who have been inspiring the viewers without them even realizing it. But the young actress Millie Bobby Brown surprises us with many of her thoughts. She is able to influence many of her fans and she also admits this as well.
The young actor got her first big break as Eleven in the Netflix Original sci-fi supernatural drama when she was just 12. Stranger Things gave her many things apart from fame. While the fans are waiting for the upcoming season of the show, Brown takes us back to the days when she just got her big break. The Enola Holmes star opened up about her days when she had to prepare for the character of Eleven.
This strong instinct strengthened Millie Bobby Brown while prepping for Eleven
The young Enola Holmes star has become a strong youth icon. Women like her give strength and empower others. During an interview, Brown shares the process of how they prepared for her character when she just joined the show. Initially, her character was bald and therefore, as Eleven, Millie had to shave her head. It was a hard decision to make certainly. But this strangely strong vision of her inspired her to go through the process.
When asked about her willingness to shave her head to justify her character, Millie shares inspirational and wise thoughts of her. She said kids her age who had no choice, lose their hair because of various reasons. Therefore, she cannot be selfish and deny the process. She felt like it was a bit superficies of her if she said, “No, I don’t want to cut my hair. I want to be beautiful.”
Instead, she got inspired by those who didn’t have any choice and said yes to shaving her head. “I’m going to cut my hair and embrace it. And I’m going to inspire people because people inspire me,” thoughtfully shared the actress. Brown didn’t want to be like any other kid, which she isn’t, and she proved it as well. Her willingness to inspire and learn from everyone is certainly reflected in her off-screen personality.
When her movie, Enola Holmes, turned out to be successful, she even thanked all her fans and encouraged the young women to be stronger and stand up for themselves. This is how Millie Bobby Brown constantly works.
