Actress Ready to Bid Farewell to Hit Show After Final Season
Actress Millie Bobby Brown is ready to move on from her breakout role as Eleven on the sci-fi smash hit “Stranger Things.”
In an interview with Glamour magazine published Monday, Brown said she’s looking forward to the show’s upcoming fifth and final season being over.
“When you’re ready, you’re like, ‘Alright, let’s do this. Let’s tackle this last senior year. Let’s get out of here’,” she told the magazine.
Star Feels Show Has Blocked Her Career Goals
Brown explained that “Stranger Things” has prevented her from pursuing other creative passions over the years.
“‘Stranger Things’ takes up a lot of time to film and it’s preventing me from creating stories that I’m passionate about,” she revealed.
The “Enola Holmes” star is eager to say “Thank you, and goodbye” once filming wraps.
Planning to Stay in Touch With Co-Stars After Show Ends
However, Brown affirmed she plans to remain close with her “Stranger Things” co-stars even after the show concludes.
“When it ends, I’m going to be able to still see these people,” she said. “No one is dying.”
Reflects on Fame and Online Bullying Over Her ‘Loud’ Personality
In the wide-ranging interview, Brown also reflected on dealing with her sudden fame at a young age. She described being criticized for talking loudly during group interviews.
“We’re kids – we talk over each other. I was just penalized for overtalking and oversharing and being too loud,” Brown shared.
The actress recalled feeling silenced and afraid to express herself after being called “an idiot” and “a brat” online.
