Young Eleven In Stranger Things 4 Is Actually Not Millie Bobby Brown

The actor who played as young Eleven in Stranger Things 4 shocked many fans of the said series.

If you've begun watching Stranger Things 4, you've probably noticed the flashbacks to Eleven when she was a patient in Hawkins lab. You've probably noticed how striking the resemblance is between the Eleven we know and love and the younger Eleven.

It's genuinely out of this world, and fans have been discussing whether the filmmakers made Millie Bobby Brown look younger or recruited a young actor that looks like her.

But before we get in to that let's talk a little bit about the newest season of Stranger Things.

Stranger Things 4

Released worldwide only through Netflix's streaming service in two volumes, the first on May 27, 2022, and the second five weeks later on July 1, 2022. The season also has nine episodes.

The story takes place in Hawkins, Indiana, in March of 1986, and the friends are forced to battle a new otherworldly danger known as Vecna.

Meanwhile, Murray Bauman and Joyce Byers are working to free Jim Hopper from a Russian prison. There are three major storylines that run throughout the season.

One storyline takes place in the fictional town of Hawkins and is centered on Dustin and his friends Max and Erica, Steve and Nancy, Robin and Lucas. A number of teenagers have been mysteriously murdered.

To save Dustin's name, the Hellfire Club's leader, Eddie, is accused of murdering Jason's ex-girlfriend via demonic means. As a result, Eddie is sought after by Jason and other members of the school's athletic teams.

They conduct their own inquiry after learning that the killings were committed by Vecna, a powerful entity who lives in the Upside Down.

Another storyline has Mike paying a visit to the newlyweds Eleven, Will, and Jonathan in their California home.

Because of recent events in Hawkins, Dr. Brenner and Owens have taken Eleven away to a secret facility to help her regain her powers while Mike, Will and Jonathan's friend Argyle are still searching for Eleven.

So this is where everything gets more interesting. Well the fourth season begins with a flashback to 1979 and the Hawkins Lab massacre. Eleven was initially blamed for the incident.

Eleven is forced to relive similar events in later episodes, as she sees her younger self in mirrors around the lab. Millie Bobby Brown, on the other hand, did not play her younger self in season four. Martie Blair plays Eleven, an eight-year-old girl.

Millie's visage is de-aged and superimposed on Martie's at times, implying that it is added as a layer.

Martie has reportedly been a Stranger Things fan since she was four years old. She describes playing young Eleven as a dream come true. She also shared this her adorable Instagram image of her "001" tattoo.

The official Stranger Things writers account confirmed on Twitter that Martie Blair plays young Eleven. She turned into her miniature self with the assistance of Brown.

The post has received more than 37,000 retweets and over 400,000 likes. Fans in the thread reacted with GIFs of shock and awe, appreciating the incredible behind-the-scenes work.

One user acknowledged that she thought they had simply de-aged Millie and had no idea she was a whole different person.

Of course, Blair had to go through the same ordeal as Brown and shave off all her hair for the job, which she characterized as the day that transformed her life forever.

The way Martie adapted to the character of Eleven was so convincing that many fans assumed Millie portrayed the part.

Some speculated that they recorded a portion of the season concurrently with the first season of the show. While many thought it was CGI that allowed Millie pull off youthful El.
