When Millie first auditioned for Stranger Things in 2015, she had no idea how big the show would be or how much it would change her life.
She said: ‘I didn’t know anything about it. Every part of the show was top secret. I Skyped with the directors [brothers Matt and Ross Duffer], and we spoke about ’80s movies–E.T., Stand by Me, and Poltergeist.
‘I flew to L.A. for a screen test, and the next day I got the job! I was 11.
‘We did the show, and I went back home to England. I thought, “OK, it’s a little show. What’s next?” And then we came to America for the premiere.
‘Three days later, my whole life changed. People went crazy! My followers went up to one million in one day.
‘Magazines wanted me. One of my goals was to be on the cover of W, and you see? Dreams do come true.’
