At just the age of eighteen, Millie Bobby Brown has achieved what many could only dream of after passing half a century. The actress has an inspiring story of how rows of rejection finally brought Millie to her true calling, which is playing Eleven in Netflix’s thrilling series Stranger Things. The British actress has been nominated for two Primetime Emmy Awards and two Screen Actors Guild Awards.
If you think she is only winning in the acting industry, then you are wrong. Because Millie, the actress also has a cruelty-free skincare line, which has received her an award from PETA. However, the shiniest of all allocades so far is Millie Bobby Brown being appointed as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, at that time the youngest for this position.
Not green but Millie Bobby Brown wants you to go blue
Many high-profile celebrities are proud members of UNICEF. Millie Bobby Brown joined after Indian- Canadian YouTuber and talk show host Lilly Singh in 2018. The UNICEF YouTube channel regularly posts videos spreading awareness and holding discussions about important matters.
In one such video, we see the 18-year-old actress in the middle of a chaotic control room. Everyone is dressed in blue, which is the goal for Children’s Day. After making sure everyone in the control room is ready, Brown phones up some celebrity friends. The first one on her list is the legendary Irish actor William John Neeson.
Furthermore, when Neeson starts talking about the skills he has acquired over a very long career, Brown squeals, thinking he is going to make another Taken. While he wasn’t talking about starring in Taken again, the actor was doing something equally exciting, baking for Children’s Day. Next, the Stranger Things actress dials Lilly Singh, who assures her that everything is under control.
To solve code blue, Singh has prepared liters of blue smoothies. Then Millie calls fellow Brit singer Dua Lipa who is ready with her blue lyrics. Next on the list is Orlando Bloom or Orlando Bluem since everyone is going blue in support of Children’s rights.
Millie Bobby Brown then explains how by going blue and signing the UNICEF petition, you are making it possible for UNICEF to ensure a brighter future for kids around the world. There was no one better who could have relayed the message as well as Millie.
