Millie Bobby Brown, who was at the age of 10, almost quit acting due to a negative experience with a prominent casting director.
In her recent interview with Allure magazine, the Stranger Things star revealed that the casting director’s comment on her “maturity” made it challenging for her to get roles suitable for her age. Despite feeling isolated and lonely at her young age, Brown’s maturity was evident, which she acknowledged in the interview.
Fortunately, with the support of her parents, Brown decided to give acting one more try before quitting altogether at such a young age. It was during this time that she landed her breakthrough role as Eleven in the Netflix hit series Stranger Things. Her performance in the show at such a young age was nothing short of impressive and catapulted her to stardom.
Brown’s age, which was 10 at the time of the incident, serves as a reminder that even at a young age, one can face challenges that can impact their self-esteem and confidence. However, with the right support and determination, as Brown demonstrated, one can overcome those challenges and achieve great things.
