Stranger Things shot Millie Bobby Brown to fame when she was just 12 years old. The Netflix Original has seen the British actress grow up onscreen, but what many fans don’t know is the fact that Brown is British. And it seems the actress herself has forgotten! Enola Holmes is dropping on Netflix soon, meaning the actress has been doing tons of interviews. Talking to the Radio Times, Millie Bobby Brown announced the hilarious news that she’s forgotten her own accent!

Millie Bobby Brown has played Eleven in the sci-fi series for a number of years, meaning she has had to speak with an American accent for a large chunk of each year. Because of this, the actress has found it hard to talk like a Brit again. A challenge for the teenager who plays Enola Holmes in the upcoming blockbuster!

The accent has proven a problem!

Speaking to Radio Times, Millie Bobby Brown explained: “For the last five years I’ve been playing an American character in Stranger Things and I found it really challenging being British in this, even though I am a Brit. I had to learn how to speak again because I’m so used to speaking in an American accent”. As she’s played the Stranger Things character for so many years, the accent has become ingrained! But as you can tell from the trailer below, her British accent has returned in full swing!

It’s all happening for the young star in recent months…

The much-anticipated movie Enola Holmes has been given amazing reviews, with critics applauding Millie Bobby Brown’s role in the film. And thankfully, we don’t have long to wait, as it drops on Netflix on September 23rd. It’s a shame the same can’t be said about Stranger Things. With the pandemic pushing production back for Season 4, we may be waiting quite some time to find out answers. Especially as poor Eleven sobbed her heart out about Hopper, only for him to appear in the teaser trailer!
