Spanish-born British actress Millie Bobby Brown owes her career to her parents. Her family moved to Los Angeles to facilitate auditions and networking for her when she was a little kid. Along with the change came luck for Brown. She landed the role of young Alice in ABC’s ‘Once Upon a Time in Wonderland’ in 2013. Her next major role was Madison O’Donnell in BBC America’s ‘Intruders’ in 2014. Brown has also appeared in smaller roles in shows like ‘NCIS,’ ‘Modern Family‘ and ‘Grey’s Anatomy.’
However, Brown couldn’t land bigger, high-paying roles. Her family had to return to the U.K. to overcome financial problems. But even at the brink of bankruptcy, the family held tight to their trust in Brown’s talent. The faith paid back when Brown landed her iconic role of Eleven in Netflix’s ‘Stranger Things.’ So now you might be wondering what is the next Millie Bobby Brown movie or TV show? Well, here’s the list of upcoming Millie Bobby Brown films and TV shows scheduled to release in 2019 and 2020. We can only hope that the latest Millie Bobby Brown movies would be as good as some of her recent ones.
