The 19-year-old actress reflected on her Netflix hit saying she is looking forward to more opportunities and close the door in her latest Glamour cover story.
“When you’re ready, you’re like, ‘All right, let’s do this. Let’s tackle this last senior year. Let’s get out of here,’” she said of the series,
which is indeed coming to an end, but not until 2025 at the earliest.
“’Stranger Things’ takes up a lot of time to film and it’s preventing me from creating stories I’m passionate about. So I’m ready to say, ‘Thank you, and goodbye,’” she added.
Brown is engaged to Jon Bon Jovi’s son Jacob Bongiovi, 21, and was only 11 years old when she came on the scene back in 2016.
The star noted she is grateful for the experience on the show to give her “the tools and the resources to be a better actor,” and friends for life.
“When it ends, I’m going to be able to still see these people,” she admitted.
In regards to what is coming up for the young star, she mentioned that she is excited about working along Chris Pratt in the upcoming post-apocalyptic adventure movie “The Electric State.”
“To be able to go toe-to-toe with Chris Pratt, it’s a very exciting opportunity that I never thought I’d be able to have, to be able to be treated the same as him and to be looked at and respected the same as him on the set by the production, by the studio,” she said.
Millie even shared similar feelings when she spoke with Women’s Wear Daily in August.
“I think I’m ready. It’s been such a huge factor in part of my life, but it’s like graduating high school, it’s like senior year,” she told the outlet at the time. “You’re ready to go and blossom and flourish and you’re grateful for the time you’ve had, but it’s time to create your own message and live your own life.”
“Stranger Things” also stars Winona Rider, David Harbour, Finn Wolfhard, Noah Schnapp, Caleb McLaughlin, Sadie Sink, Gaten Matarazzo, Joe Keery, Natalia Dyer, Charlie Heaton, Cara Buono, Priah Ferguson, Maya Hawke and Brett Gelman.
On Sept. 27, the “Stranger Things” writers confirmed they resumed production on Season 5 following the end of the Writers Guild of America strike.
