Millie Bobby Brown

Well, it's confirmed: The Stranger Things kids are growing up. Whether we like it or not.

Relationships undoubtedly play a major role in season three of the iconic 80s Netflix show, revolving around fighting alien-type monsters from The Upside Down and suspicious Russian military scientists.

Millie Bobby Brown has since had to defend her character's romance with Mike Wheeler on-screen, played by Finn Wolfhard. Young teenager Eleven is experiencing her first love, and some ain't happy.

Many fans have insisted that the pairing are better when they remain just friends, rather than boyfriend and girlfriend, but the 15-year-old actress strong disagrees.

Telling Digital Spy that she "always saw them in love", she expresses her view that the show is displaying the reality of teenage romance.

"It's so much fun, you know, it's really exciting. Eleven is full of love and she's so excited for her new relationship with Mike. I think it's just relatable and you can totally see it happening in real life."

Mentioning her co-star Finn Wolfhard, she emphasised how "easy" it was to shoot emotionally intimate scenes with her fellow teenaged actor.

"We were in a safe environment where we felt comfortable with each other," she explained. "It was really fun."

Millie is a big fan of Eleven and Mike falling in love, but Noah Schnapp's character Will Byers doesn't feel the same way. The rest of his gang all have girlfriends too; Dustin and Lucas are dating Suzie and Max.

Our hearts simultaneously broke when Mike pretty much outs Will in an earlier episode of the third season, after the poor lad just wants to play Dungeons and Dragons but his friends keep abandoning him.

"We're not kids anymore," Mike yells at Will, after he storms out of his home. 

"I mean, what did you think, really? That we were never going to get girlfriends? That we’re just going to sit in my basement playing games for the rest of our lives? It's not our fault you don't like girls."

We DIED after that final blow was delivered. The youngster has been through the wars since season one, and desperately needs his friends around him.

Stranger Things 3 is now streaming on Netflix, so binge to your heart's content.

One of our FAVE series is making its return.

Stranger Things is coming back to our TV screens for a third season.

You may have to wait a little bit longer though, as the gang will be back on July 4, 2019.

Teasing us with a snapshot of the new series, Mike (Finn Wolfhard), Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo), Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin) and Max (Sadie Sink) can be seen enjoying some 4th of July fireworks.

However, Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) and Will (Noah Schnapp) are turned to face the camera with worried looks.

The new teaser was also uploaded alongside a clip of "A Hawkins New Year's Eve."

For those of you who aren't fans of the hit Netflix programme, Hawkins is their fictional town.

The video shows their city counting down the New Year of 1985.

However, the live broadcast is continually interrupted by a strange signal.

If the teasers are anything to go by, season 3 looks very promising.

WE CAN'T WAIT.

It's nearly impossible to imagine one of the best shows of the last few years killing off two of its beloved main characters, but the Duffer Brothers are no ordinary show-runners.

They have recently revealed that during their initial planning process, they decided that Steve and Eleven would be killed off during season one. 

NOT BABYSITTER STEVE. Please, we beg. Or Eleven, she's our new badass feminist hero, if only we were that cool at 14.

The hit Netflix series just wouldn't be the same without it's leading protagonist Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) and the lovable babysitter Steve Harrington (Joe Keery).

Over the course of two (soon to be three!) seasons, these characters have become both deeply integral to the show while also becoming massive fan favourites – which begs the question, why would they have ever been killed off in the first place?

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Stranger Things (@strangerthingstv) on

In a brand new behind-the-scenes companion book Stranger Things: Worlds Turned Upside Down, Matt and Ross Duffer have let slip that both Eleven and Steve weren't originally meant to survive, because Eleven was allegedly going to sacrifice herself to save the others.

"Eleven was going to sacrifice herself to save the day. That was always the end game." The proposed deaths would have been a huge transformation to the storylines of the show's future.

It soon became crystal clear to the Duffers that Stranger Things would return for season two, which changed everything.

"We needed to leave it more up in the air, because deep down we knew the show just wouldn’t really work without Eleven. And at that point, we knew how special Millie Bobby Brown was. If there was going to be more Stranger Things, Eleven had to come back."

Millie Bobby Brown has emerged from the show as one of the most prominent talents of generation, and has showed maturity far beyond her age. She even shaved her head for her audition for the role of Eleven to show her commitment to the role. A true Kween.

Steve Harrington was kept alive by the Duffer brothers mostly because the fans absolutely adored him; his character arc from Nancy's obnoxious boyfriend to lovable and selfless babysitter to the pack of alien-fighting kids gripped the audience. 

It was thanks to actor Joe Keery's portrayal of local Hawkins heartthrob that also contributed to the script change: "This Steve character, he was just supposed to be this giant douchebag," Ross revealed.

The Duffers also revealed that Bob Newby (Sean Astin) was always intended to die, but he originally was planned be killed off a lot earlier in the series. “Sean Astin proved so likeable that Bob’s death got pushed from episode four to episode eight because we kept wanting to keep him alive,” he explained.

“It was important to us and also to Sean to give him a bit of a hero’s death. We wanted him to accomplish something meaningful."

Judging by the trailer for season three, Eleven and Steve will be more essential to the show than ever before. 

The creators have claimed that the newest season is based centrally in Hawkins mall, and takes it's primary inspiration from The Thing: 

"While it's our most fun season, it also turns out to be our grossest season," Ross Duffer teases. "We're inspired by John Carpenter's The Thing. We're inspired by Cronenberg.

"We have a little bit of a George Romero vibe in there as well. There are horror movies and horror masters that we haven't really paid tribute to as much in previous seasons that we are definitely going to get into this season."

Season three of the fan favourite show is premiering in summer 2019 on Netflix. We're counting down the days, people.

When most of us need life advice, we turn to our work wives, friends, and occasionally Google. 

However, Stranger Things star and general little legend Millie Bobby Brown has an altogether more glamorous outlet for seeking advice about boys. 

Mille is only 14, and when we were her age we were definitely at the height of our boy obsession – while Millie definitely seems like a level-headed teen, it's not surprising that while she lives the fabulous life of an actress, she still has the typical teenage issues we all dealt with.

Could one of Hollywood’s biggest actors be joining the cast of Stranger Things? Millie Bobby Brown has shared that she wants Oscar winner Leonardo DiCaprio to star in the popular Netflix series.

The actress, who plays lead character Eleven, has already planned out a character for the Titanic star.

She told Press Association, “Leonardo DiCaprio. Leonardo is Eleven’s long-lost brother. I have already made a storyline."

 

and so it begins #strangerthingsseason3

A post shared by MBB (@milliebobbybrown) on

She invited The Great Gatsby star to join the show, “Leo, if you want to be in Stranger Things, here’s the contract.”

It’s safe to say fans of the drama series would be thrilled to see The Revenant actor join the drama series, especially after the disappointing news that season three will feature fewer episodes.

Season two featured nine gripping and thrilling episodes, however, season three will only feature eight episodes, director Shawn Levy confirmed.

Luckily, all is not lost, the director commented on the potential of future seasons and it looks like we’ll be watching the sci-fi horror series for quite some time.

“Season Four is definitely happening. There’s very much the possibility of a season beyond that one,” he shared.

For someone so much younger than us, we sure do look up to Millie Bobby Brown.

The 14-year-old impressed us all when she first appeared onscreen as the enigmatic Eleven in Stranger Things. The English actress possesses a quiet intensity and talent that would impress at any age.

She's gone on to win a Screen Actors Guild Award and is soon making her feature film debut in Godzilla: King of the Monsters.

Now, the accomplished teenager has added another accolade: the youngest ever person to be named on Time's list of the 100 most influential people in the world.

Millie joins the likes of #MeToo founder Tarana Burke, Nicole Kidman, Cardi B, Taoiseach Leo Varadker, John Krasinski, and Meghan Markle, who are also featured on the Time 100 list for 2018.

Her profile was written by another beloved TV actor, Aaron Paul of Breaking Bad fame. The dad-of-one said he 'superfanned' the 14-year-old, so he and his wife met up with her to get ice cream.

Aaron soon realised getting a casual cone with Millie may have been a belittling move:

"The moment we started speaking, I realised we were in the wrong setting. I had thought, Oh, she’s 12, let’s get ice cream. No.

"She may have been 12 in years, but her spirit and mind were timeless. A wise woman was speaking from her cherubic face."

He continued,"It was like speaking to a future mentor with a perspective and groundedness that I could only have dreamed of at that age. Or at any age, if I’m being honest.

"Maybe that’s why she’s such an extraordinary actor. She somehow understands the human experience as if she has lived it for a thousand years. I’m proud to know her. To call her a friend. To call her my adopted daughter."

We are so thrilled for Millie; with her poise and talent, she deserves to make history.

There's been quite a few TV shows over the past few months that have totally blown us away.

One of those TV shows was Stranger Things.

And one of the main reasons the series was so successful was because of this superstar; Millie Bobby Brown.

The 13-year-old played the role of Eleven in the sci-fi drama, and richly deserved the award she took home from the MTV Movie and TV Awards last night.

While accepting her Best Actor in a Show gong, Millie made quite an emotional speech.

"First of all I want to thank everyone that voted and especially MTV…I want to think the cast and crew for being my second family. I love you."

Millie then began to get teary-eyed as she thanked the special people in her life.

"I want to thank my family…you give me light every day. My mom and dad for being so supportive."

She also went onto support the creators of the show, Matt Duffer and Ross Duffer, saying: "They've created a bad-ass, female character that I've got the honour to play. Thank you guys so much. I love you"

Stranger Things season two debuts on October 31 on Netflix, and we can't wait to find out the fate of Eleven.

She jumped to fame as part of Netflix’s quirky sci-fi drama Stranger Things, but it seems Millie Bobby Brown will not be defined by her character, Eleven.

Having previously rapped Nicki Minaj lyrics and effectively covered Ed Sheeran’s Thinking Out Loud, the 12-year-old actress has appeared in her first music video.

Teaming up with Birdy and Sigma for their new track Find Me, the young Brit gives an emotive lip-syncing performance while starring as the video’s only featured character.

Millie told Rolling Stone that she was “excited” to be included in the project because she is a long time Birdy fan.

We thought Adele was pretty damn impressive when she tried her hand at a bit of the ol' rapping during Carpool Karaoke with James Corden, but it looks like she might have some competition in the form of Millie Bobby Brown.

Millie has become an overnight sensation after nailing her role as Eleven in Stranger Things, and while we knew she had the acting and singing downpat, we had no idea she was so skilled in the rhymin' department.

While appearing on Jimmy Fallon's The Tonight Show, the young British star was encouraged to showcase her skills during a game of Stranger Strings in which the young cast of the hit sci-fi show read out statements and guessed who they might apply to.

Sounder slicker than we ever could, Millie launched into the first verse of Nicki's Monster, and frankly we're all blown away.

Look, there's no denying that Netflix smash-hit, Stranger Things, came totally out of left field and knocked us all for six this summer.

And if you still find yourself marvelling at the cast, the story's arc or the wonder that was Dustin, you're not alone.

In fact, you're in pretty good company as Aaron Paul of Breaking Bad fame is right there with you.

Having been given the opportunity by Elle to interview Millie Bobby Brown who plays Eleven in the sci-fi show, Aaron did what any of us would do – he fangirled all over himself.

According to the magazine, Aaron chatted with Millie over the phone earlier this month, and was unable to keep his chill for even one minute.

"First of all, I love you," he told Millie after thanking her for taking the phone call. "I have to start this off by saying that I'm just such a massive fan of yours."

"I mean, really, from one actor to another, I have such incredible respect for you. I really admire your work," he told the British-born actress.

After Millie revealed that she always felt she wanted to do something creative, Aaron responded:  "I'm so happy that you found this passion inside of you. A group of friends and I have a group chat in which we only discuss Stranger Things and how cool Eleven is."

Sounding genuinely awestruck, Aaron told Millie that her name constantly pops up in discussion in his home.

"I gotta tell you: My wife and I are constantly talking about you," he revealed. "We're constantly saying, 'Her parents must be so proud!' To be honest, we wish that you were our child."

And instead of pretending that the line was suddenly super dodgy before abruptly hanging up, Millie simply laughed, replying: "I wish you were my parents!"

Now, that girl has chill.
