Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown has shown off her new look. The 16-year-old debuted her latest look, a curly bob with bangs, on her Instagram Story. Although she didn’t offer any explanation for the change, the photo has left her fans speculating if her new haircut is for Stranger Things season 4 or Millie’s next project.
In another post, Brown further showed off her new hairdo. “n then she was blonde,” she captioned the series of selfies. Millie Bobby Brown has never been shy about changing up her hair as she famously shaved her head for Stranger Things season 1. She is also one of Hollywood’s most recognizable stars and it’s only natural for fans to be intrigued when she debuts a new look.
In January, Brown’s co-star Gaten Matarazzo told People that filming on Stranger Things season 4 is taking longer than usual due to COVID-19 restrictions. As a result, the cast is still hard at work on the new season of the hit Netflix series. That means Brown may have just given fans a sneak peek at what Eleven’s post-Hawkins hair will look like as she settles into a new town with the Byers family.
Apart from Stranger Things season 4, she also has another big role coming up soon. In July 2020, Netflix announced the Stranger Things actress would star in the streamer’s upcoming film The Girls I’ve Been, based on Tess Sharpe’s novel of the same name.
As reported by Deadline, the movie follows Nora, a teenage con artist who has to use her special talents to get herself, her girlfriend, and her ex-boyfriend out of a hostage situation at a bank. There’s no word yet on when the movie is scheduled to begin filming, but Brown’s bold, short hair could certainly work for a teen thriller.
In addition to The Girls I’ve Been, Brown has at least two other projects lined up, as well. She’s also attached to The Electric State, a sci-fi film from the Russo brothers, and The Thing About Jellyfish, another YA book adaptation. But with Hollywood productions having to work under strict COVID-19 restrictions it seems unlikely that Brown would be able to film any movies while she’s working on Stranger Things season 4.
