Millie Bobby Brown, known for her iconic role as Eleven in the popular Netflix series “Stranger Things,” has recently caused a stir in the entertainment world with her candid remarks about wanting to move on from the show.
The 19-year-old actress, who skyrocketed to fame playing the telekinetic character, expressed her readiness to say goodbye after the show’s upcoming fifth and final season.
Brown’s candid remarks have reportedly disappointed some members of the show’s crew and fanbase. An insider mentioned that they expected Brown to show more respect for the series that played a pivotal role in her career and financial success.
However, some fans came to the actress’s defense, highlighting her right to express her feelings about the show. While they acknowledged her success and fortune thanks to “Stranger Things,” they also empathized with her desire to explore other creative avenues.
Brown, who started as a 12-year-old in the show, has undoubtedly been a central figure in its immense popularity and success.
She initially earned $20,000 per episode during the first season, which significantly increased to $250,000 per episode by season three.
Her role in the series also opened doors to lucrative film opportunities, making her one of the industry’s top young talents.
It’s worth noting that this isn’t the first time Brown has expressed her desire to move on from “Stranger Things.” In March, she mentioned in an interview that she felt ready to explore new projects and create stories that are personally significant to her.
The Netflix series “Stranger Things” is set in the 1980s and follows a group of friends as they battle supernatural forces from an alternate dimension. The show’s fifth season has been delayed due to the ongoing SAG-AFTRA strike, causing further uncertainty about the future of the series.
