Millie Bobby Brown is a renowned English actress who rose to eminence for her role as Eleven in the famous Netflix Sci-fi series ‘Stranger Things.’ She is currently the youngest person to make it to Time magazine’s 100 most influential people in the world. She is also the only minor who has been awarded the title of UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador. And I’m writing this while eating my way through a tub of full-fat ice cream as I reminisce about my own teenage days.
Millie Bobby Brown’s tryst with destiny -and net worth upgrade through Stranger Things
Brown comes from very humble beginnings. Born in Marbella city, in Andalusia, Spain, Brown’s family moved to England when she was four. Motivated by their daughter’s passion for acting, her parents, Robert and Kelly Brown made the decision to move. “Every day we drove 45 minutes to Los Angeles and since we didn’t even have money for gas, Dad wouldn’t take me to castings unless he knew all the sentences for the test,” the businesswoman and philanthropist commented when questioned about her early life in an interview.
According to Variety, Brown says she was bitten by the ‘acting bug’ quite early on in life. “It was like a bug,” she said. “I know this sounds crazy, but once I find something I want to do, nobody’s stopping me. If I don’t know how to sew, and I really had that passion to sew, that’s it, I’m going to sew. That’s also with acting. So here I am.”
Prior to landing the lead role in Stranger Things, Millie had also portrayed cameos in prime-time shows such as Once Upon A Time In Wonderland, NCIS, Modern Family, and Grey’s Anatomy. She was also signed for the lead role in BBC’s supernatural drama Intruders, which was canceled after one season. Nonetheless, Millie states the role helped her prepare for her avatar of Eleven in Stranger Things.
The grass wasn’t as green in England as regards acting opportunities as her parents had hoped. “I was in England, and I didn’t get a lot of auditions there. So I did the first audition — a very emotional audition — and they said, ‘Come back for a callback.’ And I was like, ‘Okay!'” she told IndieWire while shooting for Season 1 in 2016. And that’s how Millie Bobby Brown embarked upon her journey to becoming ‘Million’ Bobby Brown.
According to Capital FM, Millie Bobby Brown received approximately $30,000 per episode for Stranger Things (before season 3).
As Stranger Things achieved cult status, Brown became a household name. She earned approximately $350,000 per episode as of Season 3, according to Fox Business. Keeping that in mind, she made about 2.8 million dollars for all episodes in that season. And we’re not including her earnings from season 4 in this calculation -just so we don’t disturb you while we all take a moment to feel sorry for our teen selves.
The big bills roll in through movies
Millie made her foray into Hollywood with ‘Godzilla: King of the Monsters,’ which was released in 2019. Millie Bobby Brown played Madison Russell, aka Maddie, in Godzilla. As per The Blast, she earned 1,000,000 dollars for her role as Madison Russell.
She also got 5% of the cut for the Godzilla merchandise, which is sold widely across the world.
Millie also received $6.1 million for her new Netflix film ‘Enola Holmes,’ which was released on 3rd September 2020, featuring herself, Henry Cavill (of Man of Steel fame), Sam Claflin, Helena Bonham Carter (of Harry Potter fame). This escalated her net worth considerably.
