Millie Bobby Brown turns the tables on a fan
Back in 2017, Millie Bobby Brown did a cover shoot for Variety while also answering some fun questions. From her favorite movie of the 80s to what she kept as a souvenir from the sets of Stranger Things, the British actress kept everyone entertained with her candor. When asked to pick her “craziest fan interaction, ” Brown revealed that she’s had several “creepy ones.”
While on an outing with co-star Noah Schnapp at Six Flags, Millie “was walking up this hill.” Given that they were at a public theme park, she expected fans to come over and ask for a picture. However, as Brown reminisces, “These girls, they just got their camera out and went straight in my face.”
Though astonished, the Stranger Things actress did not let the incident bother her. Instead, she gave the girls a taste of their own medicine and “started taking pictures of them.” After the initial shocked reactions from the fans, they requested a hug from the star. Millie, to her credit, agreed to embrace them, making the event a rather sweet one.
