Who would have thought that ‘Stranger Things’ prodigy Millie Bobby Brown almost quit acting due to the rejections she faced early in her career?
The actor who cut her teeth at 12 years old with the star character Eleven on the Netflix sci-fi show was rejected for a role in “Game of Thrones.”
The Emmy-nominated actor revealed she had auditioned for a part in the HBO fantasy series before she was cast as Eleven in “Stranger Things.”
Brown opened up about her early rejections during an appearance on “The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon” on Friday (Oct.2).
“This industry is just full of rejection, 24/7. You get far more nos — a lot of nos — before you get a yes. I was auditioning for commercials, for anything really,” she said.
The 16-year-old told Fallon: “I then auditioned for ‘Game of Thrones’ and I got a no for that. Then that’s kind of when I was like, ‘Oh this is really difficult,’ because I guess I really wanted that role.”
Brown went on to audition for Netflix’s hit series “Stranger Things” — previously titled “Montauk” — stating that the try-out was “one of my last kind of goes at this.”
“Two months later, they got back to us and was like, ‘We’d love to Skype with you,’” she said. “I Skyped with them and, you know, the rest is history, of course.
“We then named the show “Stranger Things,” but “Montauk” was definitely the one that gave me that kind of hope of doing it all again.”
No release date has been announced for season four of “Stranger Things.”
Most recently, the actor starred as the titular role in Netflix’s Sherlock spin-off titled “Enola Holmes.”
