It’s early September and the British actor Millie Bobbie Brown is back in NYC, sat front row at Raf Simons’ sophomore outing for 205W39NYC, his new appellation for Calvin Klein’s runway collection. Hair gelled back in a white silk shift, she’s the spitting image of any Hollywood ingénue, a darling of the fashion scene and a refreshing presence on the red carpet (and silver screen, too). So, what’s the catch? Oh wait, she’s thirteen. Speaking to L’Uomo Vogue just hours before, Brown proffered a keen intellect and inquisitive mind – labeled Generation Z due to the inescapable fact that she was born in 2004.

Her rapid career trajectory saw her shoot to fame in the Netflix phenomenon Stranger Things, a sci-fi drama set in Middle America in which she played the character Eleven – a young girl who escapes from a secret lab facility and develops psychokinetic powers. She’s just wrapped the second season, out October 27th . «We were asked to watch The Goonies, and Stand By Me, and E.T.!» she says, of her preparation for the show, a trip back in time to the analog days of the 1980’s – something she’s never experienced first-hand. «The Duffer brothers lived in Indiana, and they taught us a lot about what the 80’s was about. For me it didn’t feel alien, it felt believable – just very different to my life now. I just couldn’t imagine not having wi-fi! That said, there are a lot of relationships and the sort of day-to-day stuff in the show that we can all relate to: being the odd one out, bullying at school – and the directors really incorporated their own experiences which is what made it so authentic.

Born in Spain to British parents, Brown is home-schooled via internet. «I don’t miss having twenty class mates as friends», she muses, «I prefer to have five best friends who I can turn to at any moment, and bet my life on. Instead I’ve been able to travel with my job. I’ve been everywhere! NYC feels like my second home now, after LA. I’m off to Mexico, Spain, Australia, and Bali – all this year!». At time of printing, Brown has wrapped filming on her first feature film, Godzilla: King of the Monsters, slated for a 2019 release. «It has just been so amazing – one of the hardest and most challenging experiences but I have had so much fun with the cast. It’s been such an honor. Especially Vera Farmiga, it’s just incredible to think I can watch so many films and think – oh, there’s my “mother” again! Kyle Chandler is an amazing actor and a great person to work with too, I mean, I think I’ve seen every single episode of Friday Night Lights! O’Shea Jackson Jr. and Charles Dance too – in my book, they are all A-class actors that are awesome to work with, great people, and look amazing on screen».

As for her future, it seems a permanent move towards feature films will be a natural step for Brown, with Godzilla just the tip of the iceberg, with other film genres keenly in her sights. «I love watching comedy and it really interests me to explore it. I also love musicals and singing. Some people are very specific about the characters that they want to play, but I’m at a point in my career where if I like something, then I’m just going to do it».

Millie will be in the new issue of Instyle magazine that hits newstands later this week. Check out photos from the spread as well as a behind the scenes video. I will add scans as soon as I can. I’ve added scans to the gallery thanks to my friend Mary.

Millie Bobby Brown Talks Fame, Fashion, and “The Upside Down”
The most telling moment in Millie Bobby Brown’s InStyle fashion shoot comes while she’s standing atop a ladder in a pink cascading Valentino couture gown assuming a series of model-like poses as the camera clicks away. She’s been working
it for a half hour or so, when the far-off look on her face disappears and her self-proclaimed inability to sit still takes over.

“I think we’ve got it,” she announces, hopping off her perch and heading to wardrobe, the scent of teen spirit wafting in her wake as everyone starts moving on to the next frame.

Not many 13-year-olds get away with literally calling the shots in a room full of New York City fashion creatives, but confidence is not something the fledgling star lacks.

Brown grew up as the third of four children in the southern English coastal town of Bournemouth, where her parents realized early on that she was a natural-born performer. While her siblings favored cartoons, Brown opted for musicals and watched America’s Next Top Model on repeat. She started auditioning for commercials at age 8 and eventually landed bit roles on shows like Modern Family and Grey’s Anatomy.

Her big break came last year when she bounded onto the scene in Netflix’s ’80s-inspired sci-fi hit, Stranger Things, in which she holds her own against Matthew Modine and Winona Ryder as Eleven, a wunderkind with psychokinetic abilities who can throw grown men into walls with her distinctive steely stare. She’s already nabbed a SAG Award for her role as part of the ensemble cast, and the series received 18 Emmy nominations for its first run, including outstanding supporting actress in a drama series for Brown.

Given that Season 1 ended with her character presumably trapped in the underworld called the Upside Down, questions have persisted about her return. Fear not: Brown confirms over a plate of French fries that she will be back and is more excited than ever, in part because she has more than the 40 or so lines she had last year. “It’s a lot darker and more emotional and emotionally challenging for me, 10 times more than the first season,” she says. “Everything is explained.”

Brown also just wrapped her first feature film, Godzilla: King of the Monsters, in which she plays the lead opposite Vera Farmiga and Kyle Chandler. She loved the experience, but not so much the big-screen pacing. “I had the time of my life, but it’s very different,” she says. “The other day we did 75 takes for one scene, and for Stranger Things we sometimes do it all in one take, so it’s very interesting.”

Along with her experience, her social circle is also broadening. She’s done solo TV appearances on Ellen and The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, had powwows with the likes of Meryl Streep and Barack Obama (both of whom she calls “very sweet”), and even gone from fangirl to friend of Miley Cyrus. “We text and FaceTime often,” says Brown. “She’s fabulous.”

Now Brown is getting used to having her own admirers. “I can’t walk down a street or outside this hotel without somebody asking for a picture,” she says. “But there’s also the fact that I kind of asked for it, you know? I can’t blame it on my fans. I will never say no unless I’m in an airport and need to catch a flight or I’m at dinner with my family, because that’s just quality time. But other than that, no, I’m fine with the fame. I accept it. All I want to do is model, act, and sing, so if fame comes with that, then so be it.”

A triple threat if there ever was one, she says she’s not quite ready for Broadway but enjoys honing those ANTM skills. “Modeling is very close to my heart,” she says. “I feel like just taking pictures is amazing. You’ll feel if you did a good job in that shoot—or if you feel like you haven’t, then you haven’t. But some pictures turn out to be iconic, and it means so much.”

Not surprisingly, the fashion world loves her right back. (A young, bubbly pixie on the rise who can wear clothes well? What’s not to love?) She has been courted by brands such as Coach and Louis Vuitton and is currently the face of Converse. This past January she appeared in the first campaign for Calvin Klein’s couture line, By Appointment, under the watchful eye of new chief creative officer Raf Simons, one of the industry’s most revered designers. She was playing Monopoly with her family in a cabin in the woods when her agent called to tell her she got the gig. When asked if she knew of Simons’s work beforehand, Brown’s reply is the verbal equivalent of an eye roll: “Of course. I mean, come on.”

Off duty, she favors pieces from Topshop and her Converse kicks, but for any professional appearances the selection process isn’t as casual. She works with a stylist to find “age-appropriate” looks that are then run by an extensive list of guardians. “Everything I wear has to go through every person on my team,” she says. “It has to go through my mum first. If she approves, it’ll go to my agents, and then, obviously, the last stop is my dad—and if he doesn’t like it, then I’m not wearing it. It’s as simple as that.”

Her steady references to her family are a charming reminder that she’s still a kid, albeit one with an outsize future. “You know, I’m just a 13-year-old like any other 13-year-old, so I just plan on living my life and take it step-by-step. Hopefully, in five years’ time I will be in college. No, let’s say eight years … unless I get a really good movie. Then it’s, ‘See ya, college!’ ”

Press/Photos/Video: Stranger Things 2 returns to Upside Down with new monster, bigger story

Stranger Things’ telekinetic teen Eleven (breakout star Millie Bobby Brown) may be able to lift government kidnapper vans but series creators Ross and Matt Duffer can rattle off the biggest movies of the summer of 1984 without blinking. Their passion for pop culture fueled the creation of Netflix’s Things, a tribute to the movies they loved as kids in North Carolina (think E.T., The Goonies, Stand by Me). “Obviously they’re nerdy, but that’s what makes them so cool,” says Brown. “It makes [Stranger Things] so authentic because it comes from their hearts.” The Duffers’ canny but old-fashioned combination of emotion and thrills drove the series — about four small-town Indiana friends who find themselves dealing with a portal to a different dimension — to monster-level success after its 2016 premiere. “I don’t think Netflix thought it was going to be as huge as it became, but neither did we,” admits Matt.

On Oct. 27, fans will finally get to see Things’ bigger, badder second installment (To celebrate the return, EW has three different covers featuring the cast). “It’s Stranger Things but just sorta hopped up a little,” says Finn Wolfhard, who plays Mike Wheeler. “It’s almost like season 1 was drinking a Coke and season 2 they drank a Red Bull.” The Duffers have envisioned the return as not so much a second season but a movie sequel. To that end, when the show comes back it will have the cinematic moniker Stranger Things 2. “When we started describing it as a sequel, Netflix was like, ‘Don’t do that, because sequels are known to be bad,’ ” says Matt. “I was like, ‘Yes, but what about T2 and Aliens and Toy Story 2 and Godfather II?’ ” Before the official greenlight came for Things 2, the Duffers had been quietly plotting the next round of interdimensional adventure. Says Matt, “The good news is that a lot of what we wanted to see or what we responded to, that seems to be what the audience responded to. Like we fell in love with Gaten, and there were aspects, like Barb, we were already planning to deal with. It felt like there was a nice alignment between what we wanted to see and what other people wanted to see.”

While season one was focused mainly on finding Will (Noah Schnapp) and defeating the demogorgon, Things 2 features several disparate stories that intertwine but all roads eventually lead to the “shadow monster,” a nickname given to a giant creature Will first meets in PTSD-like visions of the Upside Down. “It’s all connected to this singular threat, which is tied into this shape that Will sees in the sky,” says Ross. By the end of the nine-hour season, fans can also expect new characters, like Bob (Sean Astin), a love interest for Joyce (Winona Ryder), and some pretty wow-worthy action sequences. Says Matt, “Each episode is building on the last one. It gets much crazier than it ever got in season 1.”

Netflix is preparing to relaunch the series with a full-throttle blitz worthy of a James Cameron extravaganza. “Everything the way Netflix is approaching the marketing, the publicity, the licensing, the merchandising, those are all closer to a feature film tentpole franchise model than a second season of a television series,” says Levy, who directed the huge Night at the Museum trilogy. Now the Things team just needs to live up to those giant expectations. “It’s definitely daunting,” says Levy. “The love for this show is so rabid.” But the Duffers are confident that viewers will be more than satisfied with their return to the Upside Down. Says Matt, “We want people to argue about what season is better. I want the debate. I want the Toy Story debate!”
