There’s been plenty of raving about Netflix’s “Stranger Things” series, most notably the kids with actress Millie Bobby Brown a standout in the role of ‘Eleven’.
Unlike with so many other shows and films which hire older actors to play younger kids, the kids of ‘Things’ are genuine kids and Brown in particular is only 12 years old. Today, she shared a video from during production of herself getting the character’s super short haircut.
Co-showrunner Matt Duffer tells EW that initially the actress’ parents were a bit hesitant about shaving her head – that is until a photo from “Mad Max: Fury Road” saved the day:
“[W]e pulled out a magazine photograph of Charlize Theron as Furiosa and showed it to Millie. ‘Charlize looks totally badass, right?’ Millie agreed; Charlize looked badass. And that was it: She agreed to buzz it all off.”
