The end of “Stranger Things” season four set the stage for a final battle, with Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) and her friends in Hawkins getting ready to take on the big bad, Vecna (Jamie Campbell Bower), when season five eventually arrives on Netflix.
The cast — and their characters — have come a long way since their fresh-faced debuts, and many of them are already pushing their careers into new directions.
Chief among them is Eleven herself, Millie Bobby Brown, who also starred as the titular detective in Netflix’s “Enola Holmes” movie, and its sequel. She also played Madison Russell in the two most recent “Godzilla” movies.
Speaking to Women’s Wear Daily in an interview published Monday, Brown touched on leaving “Stranger Things” behind, explaining that she’s ready to move on.
“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,” Brown said.
She added: “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.”
Brown has also made plenty of headlines over the last few years thanks to her relationship with Jake Bongiovi, the son of Jon Bon Jovi. The pair recently got engaged, with Brown showing off her ring on Instagram.
However, she told WWD that she is going to keep their wedding private.
“I think probably drawing the curtains, just because there are only so many moments in life that you get only once,” the actor said. “And to have everyone’s opinions and eyes looking at that just feels unnatural to me.”
The star went on to say that wedding planning is fun, but feels that it’s important to keep things “close to your chest.”
