Millie Bobby Brown Admits She Was Surprised By Enola Holmes' Success

Millie Bobby Brown is opening up about the first Enola Holmes movie.

The 18-year-old actress not only starred in the movie, but she also produced it, after keeping it a secret for years!

After the movie came out, it was a big hit and fans absolutely loved it so much.

In a new interview, Millie admitted that she was surprised by how successful the movie became.

See what she said inside…

“I really didn’t think it would be as successful as it was,” she told Total Film, via GamesRadar. “Of course, it resonated with me so much – that’s why I did it.”

“I thought, ‘There’s so much potential here.’ But I didn’t realize how much potential,” Millie added. “People like Blake Lively messaged me, saying, ‘My daughter wants to be Enola Holmes.’ It started to sink in how much it resonated with everyone else.”

Millie opened up about how she saw the character being a British female lead to look up to.

“Growing up, I didn’t have a British female lead to look up to,” she said. “I watched a lot of Hannah Montana, a lot of Wizards Of Waverly Place, a lot of Phineas And Ferb. I loved those, but I always saw boys leading it, or they were American. I like Harry Potter, but Harry Potter is the lead, not Hermione. And I thought: what kind of character can British female leads look up to? And Enola is one of them.”

“This is very much a period movie but you’re placing a modern girl in this period of time,” she continued. “She has progressive views. She’s a new thinker, smart and bright, which is very much valued in this day and age, but which is terrifying for those in the 1800s.”
