Today at New York Comic Con, Stranger Things stars Millie Bobby Brown (Eleven) and David Harbour (Chief Hopper) treated fans to a chat about how they filmed all those nosebleeds, Barb’s fate, and Millie’s favorite Eggo flavor. Here’s everything we learned.
1. Millie Bobby Brown auditioned for the role of Eleven multiple times — and she didn’t stare, she just cried a lot.
“I didn’t actually have to stare, I cried a lot in the audition. All I said was, ‘It’s behind you!’ and that was it. It was complicated, I auditioned multiple times. I auditioned once by myself, and then I auditioned on tape, I Skyped with the Duffers, and then I flew to LA and actually met Finn (Wolfhard) and the Duffers, and then I found out I had to cut all [my hair] off and I got the job.” —Millie Bobby Brown
