The actor, who shot to fame as Eleven in Netflix’s huge science fiction hit Stranger Things appeared as Enola Homes for the first time in 2020, not only acting but also earning a producer credit for her role in the production at the age of just 16.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Brown described her production experience on the show as “may be the most important moment in my career so far because it’s something that I developed.”
She added: “Obviously, it can be tiring, and when you look back on it, you’re like, ‘Gosh, I can’t believe I didn’t fall asleep.’ But there were so many things that I got to be a part of, and I was really grateful for that.
“There were so many things that I got to be a part of, and I was really grateful for that. My age and gender has never defined [my role in the production], so everyone on set really respected me and heard me. It was such a nice environment to be able to experience.”
Brown is soon set to return to the role of Enola Holmes, the younger sister of Sherlock Holmes (played by Henry Cavill) in a second season of the popular show on Netflix.
In addition to Brown and Cavill, Helena Bonham Carter will reprise the role of Sherlock’s mother Eudoria Holmes in Enola Holmes 2 – plus Pistol’s Louis Partridge will appear as Viscount Tewkesbury.
Enola Holmes 2 will be released on Netflix on November 4th 2022.
