Millie Bobby Brown Almost Quit Acting for This Reason

Millie Bobby Brown is opening up about rejection in Hollywood.

During her appearance on The Tonight Show, the 16-year-old actress revealed she almost quit acting after she didn’t get a role on Game of Thrones.

Before getting cast on Stranger Things, Millie said she became “very disheartened” by the acting industry, which she is “just full of rejection 24/7.”

“I feel like you do get a lot of noes before you get a yes,” Millie shared, adding that she was auditioning for “anything really” at the time.

Millie went on to share that she auditioned for a role in Game of Thrones that she “really wanted,” and was very upset when she didn’t get it.

“I got a no for that and then that’s when I was like, ‘Oh, this is really difficult,’” Millie said.

After almost quitting, Millie went on an audition for a “Netflix show called Montauk,” which later became Stranger Things.

“I auditioned and two months later they got back to us and said, ‘Hey we’d love to Skype with you’ and I Skyped with them, and the rest is history,” Millie shared. “Montauk was definitely the one that kind of gave me that hope of doing it all again.”
