Stranger Things' Millie Bobby Brown Reveals Finn Wolfhard Was Her First Kiss!
The 12-year-old actress was interviewed for the piece by her pal, dancer Maddie Ziegler. Here’s what she shared:
On being asked by Maddie about her kiss with Finn Wolfhard on Stranger Things: “You’re an evil, evil person. You know that? Are you aware of that, Maddie? Yeah, I did have to kiss Finn. At the end of the day, it’s only acting, and it’s something you have to do, and I would do any- thing for the show. I cut my hair, I kissed Finn. It was definitely strange. It was, like, my first kiss, so it was kind of weird. But then, like, when I’d done it, I thought, ;Wow. It makes sense for the storyline.’”
On the best advice she’s received: “I think David Schwimmer honestly, because a lot of people say to me, ‘Stay grounded, be humble.’ I get that a lot, and I’m sure you get that a lot, Maddie. David Schwimmer was just like, ‘You need to love what you do.’ And I think that’s really nice. Just love your work. My family has given me great advice saying, you know, ‘Don’t work too hard.’ And it’s really nice to have someone like that—you know that they love you. It’s nice to have famous people love you.”
On playing Eleven: ” It was different from other roles because in those I had to speak a lot. I had, like, paragraphs. I had to play a man in one of my shows, and kill my mum in one of my shows, so it’s very weird the things I bump into. And in this show, I realized I didn’t have to speak with my mouth, I had to speak with my face. Instead of actually saying I’m angry, I’m sad, I’m confused, I had to do it with my face, and that was challenging. But I really enjoy playing a challenging role. I love playing Eleven. ”
