Millie with her sister Ava:

Millie attended Pokesdown Community Primary School growing up. Millie’s father worked as a real estate agent for a span of four years, and then the family decided to move to America to help her pursue acting. When they first moved, they settled down in Florida and established a teeth-whitening business. Later they moved to Los Angeles after taking advice from her agent, who said they needed to do so in order to kickstart her career, and Hollywood was her best chance. Millie has been vocal about the faith her parents showed in her by uprooting their whole lives while selling all their belongings to move to Hollywood for her. Millie initially secured small roles in shows NCIS, Modern Family, and Grey’s Anatomy but kept missing out on the big roles. 

When things became financially tight for the family, Millie’s manager Melanie Greene lent them money to get them through. Her family decided to move back to England to stay with her aunt when things got worse. ‘I was devastated. I wasn’t getting work. I thought I was done,’ Millie said. Millie got her big break when she got cast as Eleven on the hit Netflix show Stranger Things. Her family moved back to America and settled down in Atlanta while Millie shot the show there. Her sister Paige accompanied Millie on the set, and both her parents gave up their jobs in order to travel with Millie during her promotional activities. Millie expressed her joy in having her parents travel with her, saying, “It’s really fun to have them along on the journey to experience things with me. I wouldn’t be here today without their support. My parents are so amazing, and they’ve traveled around the world with me.” 

Robert proudly spoke about knowing how talented his daughter was by saying, “My other children would watch cartoons, but Mill watched musicals – Chicago, Moulin Rouge, Annie, and Bugsy Malone. She’d belt out a tune. She was performing from day one.”
