In her answer, Brown stated that season 1 was certainly a jumbled time, and people used to run around. The actress didn’t feel like she was working on a show as she was juggling between school and acting. At one moment she was taking classes and at the other she was crying on the scene and then again jumping back to school.
“It’s a cycle, it’s a vicious cycle for sure but it’s a cycle and you just have to kind of get used to it,” explained the Enola Holmes star.
Millie revealed that she never prepared for the scenes because that is the best way to keep things natural and convincing. She was home-schooled at the time, so she used to take classes in her vanity.
The Stranger Things star understood the cycle of acting at a young age and knew how she has to balance things. She is a firm believer that being an artist means finding your own rhythm. Thus, Millie Bobby Brown discovered her style that instant is the best way for her to make it work.
