Millie Bobby Brown a.k.a. Eleven in Stranger Things: the handicap she has had since birth
Steph Deschamps / July 14, 2022
She has never hidden it. Millie Bobby Brown was born with partial deafness in one of her ears, and for several years, the rest of her hearing in that ear has completely faded. At 18, the young woman who became a global star thanks to the success of the Netflix series Stranger Things, sees it as a strength. You can 'talk' with your face, she says in a neutral tone. It's very easy for someone to say, 'I'm crazy. I'm sad. I'm angry. Me, I just have to express it with my face, relativizes the British actress.
The actress who has never taken acting classes admits that she doesn't always hear the director shouting action, on the locations of her various shoots; but this partial hearing loss won't shake the confidence of the actress who also loves to sing: And if I sound bad, I don't care, because I'm just doing what I love, she explains to Glamour magazine.
