Millie Bobby Brown and her “Stranger Things” cast mates made a big splash at the Emmy Awards, but the young actress admits to feeling some nerves — because it was her first time onstage.
“I have never been in school play before. I was nervous because it was my first time on stage,” she tells British talk show “Lorraine”. “I went on and I performed, and I saw David Scwhimmer. I saw, like, everyone.”
In fact, admits the 12-year-old actress, “Then I went down and I had a panic attack. I was like, ‘Please, I need to take a picture with everyone.’ I don’t play it cool, I get really starstruck.”
Even appearing on the U.K. daytime talk show, she explains, is a thrill. “I am completely starstruck being here,” she tells host Lorraine Kelly. “I have a little routine at home where I watch this show, ‘This Morning’ and ‘Loose Women’. I am homeschooled [and so I’m always asking if I can have them on.”]
In the interview, Brown also credits the support of her family for her success. “My family packed everything up and risked a lot,” she reveals. “My brother says to me, ‘You’re not a celeb in this house.’ It’s nice to have them to keep me humble.”
