When did Millie shave her head?
Millie shaved her head for the first season of Stranger Things in 2016, and says she found doing it so incredibly empowering.
She wrote on Instagram: "The day I shaved my head was the most empowering moment of my whole life. The last strand of hair cut off was the moment my whole face was on show and I couldn’t hide behind my hair like I used to.
"The only image I had in my head about what I could possibly look like is Charlize Theron in Madmax.
"As I looked at myself and couldn’t see my old self, I realized that now; I have a job to do and that is to inspire other girls that your image or exterior part is not what I think is important. What I find important is caring, loving and inspiring other girls.
"Thought to share my thoughts during this life changing moment."
How did Millie get the part in Stranger Things?
Millie was in London, aged 12, when she received a call about the Stranger Things audition.
They didn't give her much information about the show or about her character – a telekinetic prisoner with an obsession with a snack called Eggos – until she got the role.
Show creators the Duffer Brothers didn't tell Millie she would have to shave her head until the final audition, which really upset her mum.
To prepare for the role, they told her to watch 80s' TV movies like The Goonies and ET.
The most challenging part of the role was that Eleven didn't have much dialogue and Millie was forced to convey most of her emotions through actions and expressions.
