In August 2015, it was announced that she’d been cast in the supernatural period drama series written and directed by young genre filmmakers Matt Duffer and Ross Duffer.

The filming of the first season began in November 2015 when Millie was 11 years old. Born on February 19, 2004, at HC Marbella International Hospital in Marbella, Spain, she turned 12 the following year on February 19, 2016.

During an NPR interview, the Duffer brothers (Matt and Ross) praised Millie Bobby Brown’s acting skills, calling her a precociously gifted actor who can adjust her performance to different lens or camera positions in ways that most child actors are unable to do.

However, they also acknowledged that there were moments on set when they were reminded that Brown was just a child. Ross Duffer shared an example of Brown showing up covered in glitter, stating that she didn’t know where it came from, causing a delay in shooting for 45 minutes. The brothers joked that they did not face similar issues with their adult actors, such as David Harbour.

“It really came out of the blue, to be honest,” Brown told IndieWire in July 2016 about her casting for Season 1 of Stranger Things.

“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!’”

Caleb McLaughlin was 14 years old, Finn Wolfhard was 13 years old, Millie Bobby Brown was 12 years old, and Gaten Matarazzo was 13 years old when Stranger Things season 1 premiered on Netflix in July 2016.
