'Stranger Things' Season 4 Volume 2 on Netflix: How Millie Bobby Brown may play Halsey in biopic
'Stranger Things' Season 4 Volume 1 was released in the first week of June and we are eagerly waiting for Volume 2 of the thrilling season. Millie Bobby Brown has done quite an exceptional job in performing the role of 'El'. The British actress is now all set to play Halsey in the biopic of singer Halsey.
Halsey is an American singer who is known for her albums like Chainsmokers' single 'Closer', which topped the charts in over 10 countries. In 2018, Halsey met with Sony Pictures for a project on a movie that is “loosely” based on her life. In a recent interview with Jimmy Fallon, she stated how she would want Millie Bobby Brown to play young Halsey in the biopic.
Who is Millie Bobby Brown?
Millie Bobby Brown is a British actress and model who was born in Spain in 2004. Brown made her acting debut as a guest star in ABC's fantasy drama series 'Once Upon a Time in Wonderland', a spin-off of 'Once Upon a Time'. In 2016, Brown was cast to play Eleven in the Netflix science fiction-horror series 'Stranger Things'. She was nominated for the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series and the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series.
The show 'Stranger Things' gained so much fame that it has tons of fan pages and its own official youtube channel. Fans have already fallen in love with season 4 volume 1 of the show and cannot wait to dive into volume 2. This makes the latest season the most expensive one in history, surpassing Game of Thrones’ $15 million per episode record. Not only has the series broken that record, but it has also touched a new milestone on the streaming service. The British actress is also set to perform in 'Enola Holmes 2' which is set to release in 2023, and Nora O’Malley who is a con artist in 'The Girls I've Been'.
How did Millie Bobby Brown become friends with Halsey?
Halsey and Brown have had a fondness for each other for a long time. Halsey recently even tweeted, "When are Millie Bobby Brown and I gonna play sisters in something this is getting out of hand.” And we think Brown has made up her mind to play the role of Halsey in the singer biopic.
For years, the singer and the actress have been compared with each other and said to have similar facial features. Halsey even referenced the uncanny resemblance by dressing up as Brown’s iconic character Eleven from 'Stranger Things' for Halloween in 2016. She was asked again about the similarities during her appearance on 'The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon' on Monday, June 13, and about her biopic. Halsey stated that Brown would be the right person to play her but also thinks she isn't as famous to have Bobby play her role in the biopic.

In the 'The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon', Fallon questioned the singer who they would want to portray in a biopic in between a quiz game and a few tales. "I know the answer,” Halsey replied as Fallon pulled out a photo of Halsey dressed as Eleven from Stranger Things, played by Millie Bobby Brown. The singer then stated that they weren’t “famous enough” to cast Brown and suggested that Fallon himself would be better for the role.
In 2018, after Halsey met with executives from Sony Pictures for the biopic, the project has been heavily delayed as she ended up falling in love with the screenwriter of the biopic Alev Aydin. She tweeted about this being one of the reasons her biopic got delayed.
