Millie Bobby Brown has come a long way from playing a telekinetic 11-year-old on Stranger Things. She is now a confident 18-year-old who strives to express herself and inspire others her age through various creative mediums. From acting to entrepreneurship she just recently turned director. The young star tried her hand at directing a short film for Samsung. Now Brown has expressed her desire to work with an Oscar-nominated director.
Millie Bobby Brown would like to work with Greta Gerwig next
The Stranger Things star wants to work with Greta Gerwig next. The American director has received high acclaim for her projects like Little Woman and Ladybird.
“Greta would be a dream, so I’m just going to leave it at that. Greta Gerwig would be… just because of her incredible work, but also who she is as a person. I’ve met her and her spirit is contagious, and to be honest, [working] with her would be a dream,” she gushed.
Interestingly, the actress never had the chance to work with female directors. Collaborating with Greta would bring together two powerhouse talents under one roof.
Greta’s next project, Barbie stars Ryan Gosling and Margot Robbie in the lead. The film was announced in 2019 and is slated for a release in 2023.
The actress displayed some serious aerial silk choreography in the short film
The actress has given her all to the short film. Starring herself and Honey, who plays young Millie, it’s a “universal message” to self-discovery, growth, and empowerment. The short film features an impressive aerial silk performance and a poem narration. Millie Bobby Brown practiced for a month before the shoot. The silks made her feel empowered.
“I feel like it represents womanhood. They’re really symbolic of my growth, and the choreography and the silks itself are just so poetic.”
“This is a universal message [intended to] empower young women to authentically be themselves and accept their inner child,” she added. The multi-talented star also wrote an original poem and narrated it.
