• Millie Bobby Brown is a British actress
  • She is best known for 'Stranger Things'
  • THIS is how she feels about the show ending

During an interview with 'Glamour' magazine, which also named her Woman of the Year prior to the actors’ strike, Millie compared her hit Netflix series ending to graduating from high school. Although the show has made her career, it's time for her to move on now, as she explains.

"When you’re ready, you’re like, ‘All right, let’s do this. Let’s tackle this last senior year. Let’s get out of here,’" said Brown, who shot to stardom playing "Eleven" on the show. "‘Stranger Things’ takes up a lot of time to film and it’s preventing me from creating stories that I’m passionate about. So I’m ready to say, ‘Thank you, and goodbye."

Millie has her eyes on the future now

The 19-year-old British superstar was just 11 when she first landed the role in the hit Netflix sci-fi series. 'Stranger Things' is scheduled to film its fifth and final season once the ongoing actors’ strike is resolved. And so, the wait is on but the end is now in sight. In the new interview, she admitted that she’s ready to move on from the long-running drama, while she acknowledged that portraying her role has given her "the tools and the resources to be a better actor", she added: "When it ends, I’m going to be able to still see these people."

"I think I’m ready. It’s been such a huge factor in part of my life, but it’s like graduating high school, it’s like senior year. You’re ready to go and blossom and flourish and you’re grateful for the time you’ve had, but it’s time to create your own message and live your own life."

One of her biggest non 'Stranger Things' projects on the horizon is 'The Electric State,' a post-apocalyptic tentpole from the Russo Brothers co-starring Chris Pratt. "To be able to go toe-to-toe with Chris Pratt!" Brown told 'Glamour'.  "It’s a very exciting opportunity that I never thought I’d be able to have, to be able to be treated the same as him and to be looked at and respected the same as him on the set by the production, by the studio."

Millie's star is on the rise

Millie also recalled the backlash she faced as a 13-year-old girl during 'Stranger Things' press tours. She was often criticized for talking over her co-stars in interviews and "trying to steal the thunder" from them, she remembered. Brown said adults called her "an idiot," "stupid" and a brat. But now, she feels a lot more mature both on and off the screen.

Brown has shared her desire to leave the show before. She told 'Seventeen' magazine in March: "I’m definitely ready to wrap up. I feel like there’s a lot of the story that’s been told now, and we know of it, it’s been in our lives for a very long time."

"But I’m very ready to say goodbye to this chapter of my life and open new ones up. I’m able to create stories myself that are important to me and focus on the bigger picture. But I’m really grateful."

Outside of that, life is keeping her quite busy these days. In addition to acting, she has a production company, which is behind the 'Enola Holmes' franchise, a newly published novel, and her beauty line Florence by Mills.

She’s also engaged to be married to Jon Bon Jovi’s son, Jake Bongiovi, 21. While she is aware that many people think they are too young to wed, she points out that they both have parents who married young and are still happily wed. "We were modelled wonderful, loving relationships," she said. "So it’s something that we both had that mutual drive for."

Apart from the final season of 'Stranger Things', as far as the future goes, you can find Millie in a slew of upcoming projects including 'The Electric Slate', 'The Girls I've Been', and 'Damsel', in the near future!
