Millie Bobby Brown is deaf in one ear

At the age of 11, Brown auditioned for the role of Eleven on the Netflix drama fantasy. If the quality is still there and they don't think the show will be stretched too thin or watered down, then I think it'll continue, and Netflix will let it run as long as it can because it's the biggest show they have. "That this little person had such fierce power - that's what took me aback. That same day the Duffers [brothers Matt and Ross, who created the show] and I knew she was the one".

In addition to her powerful audition, there's another moment that most definitely won't be forgotten: her first smooch. And in the season 2 finale, the duo shared a second kiss during the school's Snow Ball dance. In the first season of Stranger Things, Brown made use of her other senses when playing Eleven, who didn't talk much: "You can talk with your face", she says matter-of-factly.

The Stranger Things starlet, 13, told Variety in a profile published on Tuesday, October 31, that she was born with partial hearing loss. "It's very easy for someone to say, 'I'm mad".


"I would like five seasons, but maybe that's just being me because I don't want the show to end ever", Brown tells Variety.

"My blood that I put in my nose". Eleven's journey eventually leads her out of the shack and into the real world - where, in a storyline that didn't go over well with all fans of the show, she journeys to Chicago and briefly falls in with a group of criminal misfits led by her long-lost "sister" Kali, before making the Luke Skywalker move of rushing back to Hawkins to help her imperiled friends. "And then the blood from Stranger Things". "I'm still just a kid". Stranger Things season 2 is now streaming on Netflix, and just like season 1, it's garnering big viewership and massive social media buzz.
