Millie Bobby Brown (16) has already had an impressive career for her young age. Still, it wasn’t always easy, the ‘Stranger Things’ star admits during an interview with Jimmy Fallon on ‘The Tonight Show’. “In this industry you get a lot of rejections, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You get a lot more no’s – a lot more no’s – before you get a yes. ”

Brown knew she wanted to act at the age of eight and spent all her free time improving her acting skills. Young Brown auditioned for roles in advertising campaigns, music videos or films, each time she was turned down. She auditioned for a role in the HBO series ‘Games Of Thrones’, but was also turned down. “When I got a no, I thought, ‘Oh, this is really difficult, because I really wanted to play that role,’ she says in the interview.

The rejection discouraged her, but she did not give up and thus landed the lead role of Eleven in the hit series ‘Stranger Things’. The rest is history. Brown can now also be seen as Enola Holmes in the Netflix film of the same name, although it will be produced some criticism.
