The host posed a flurry of questions before the star to gain some enlightenment on acting and screenplays. This was the correct warm-up for all the aspiring actors in the industry. The young maestro elaborated on how she has been managing to get herself accustomed to all her characters. The key to all of it, according to Brown, has always been “complete and utter attention” to what she was doing. Speaking out of the experience, Brown proceeded to explain that “you just completely forget your own life.”
Explaining the filming process further, she said once she starts a film’s production, she needs to stop who she is. In the course of adapting to her characters, she told how swiftly she had to switch to Enola from Eleven in no time. This included digging up Enola’s voice, her personality, and oh, also some scoldings from Harry Bradbeer, the British director.
She threw some more light on how shortly after Stranger Things she took up her nature as Enola. Brown said, “I landed from Eleven on a Friday, and was fitting in a costume for Enola, on Monday.” This clearly explains how tough a schedule the star has had for a couple of months straight. Nevertheless, she has always shone brighter than ever in all her on-screen performances.
