It seems like only yesterday that Millie Bobby Brown shot to fame as the young star of the Netflix phenomenon Stranger Things. But it was actually way back in 2016 when Eleven and co. first burst onto our screens. Since then, the actress has grown up in front of our eyes. She’s even engaged to the son of a rock god!
Feelin' the love
Still, while Brown may be feelin' the love, her fiancé better not stand in her way. After all, Brown has always been determined to take Hollywood by storm. She knew she was going to act from the age of just eight, and that was that. “Once I find something I want to do, nobody’s stopping me. It was like a bug,” she told Variety in 2017.
Rising through the ranks
That ambitious streak has certainly paid off. Ever since Brown made her debut in Once Upon a Time in Wonderland, she has risen to become one of the most in-demand young stars in Hollywood. But here’s something you may not know: she’s not actually American…
Well, technically speaking, anyway. Brown was born in Spain and spent part of her childhood in England. Then, finally, she and her family relocated to Florida, where she developed a love of performing. And before she even hit her teens, she was being courted by an agent in Hollywood. It was only a matter of time before Brown, her parents, and her three siblings headed to Los Angeles to help the fledgling star chase her dreams.
Lots of tears
Not all was well, though, as Brown has admitted she found life in the big city a little overwhelming at first. “It was very hard. There were lots of tears along the way,” she said to The Mail on Sunday in 2016. But did she settle more easily into Tinseltown once the parts started rolling in?
