Millie Bobby Brown is probably one of the biggest breakout stars that the world has ever had. With her lead role as Eleven in the Netflix blockbuster “Stranger Things,” Millie Bobby Brown welcomed fame in her life at quite an early age. At the age of 16, Millie became a hit TV star and even a winner of the prestigious Screen Actor Guild award. After being exposed to the glamorous world, she has been hailed as a talented actor.
Apart from surprising the fans with her “Stranger Things” performance, Millie thrived in the industry and even did films with prominent names. She has even been nominated for an Emmy for being an inspiring role model for girls. This is mainly because Millie Bobby Brown has made a name for herself even after so many hardships. Her professional life is at its best but in her personal life, Millie suffers from severe health issues…
Is Millie Bobby Brown Deaf?
Fans may know many details about Millie’s life, but little did anyone know about the issues she struggles with. According to Hearing Like Me, Brown is partially deaf and she has been living with that since her childhood. Millie could not hear from one ear from early on in her life. The issue was detected from her birth and her parents had tested tubes as well as many other treatments. But eventually, it faded away and Brown went totally deaf in one ear.
As a matter of fact, Millie’s real life has quite a connection with her iconic character of Eleven from “Stranger Things.” Both of them can use other senses as well as facial features to convey what they want to express.
In fact, if this news wasn’t shared by the star herself, no one would have ever guessed that Millie would be deaf in one year. Her acting and charismatic appearance are enough to convince anyone of her talent. From her role in “Enola Holmes” to that in “Godzilla,” Millie has excelled at what she has done.
During an interview with Variety, Millie was asked about her feelings about being not able to hear. Millie expressed, “You can talk with your face,” “It’s very easy for someone to say, ‘I’m mad. I’m sad. I’m angry.’ I have just to do it with my face.”
That is something brave to say for a girl of such a young age. In fact, it was a breath of fresh hour to hear such a young girl validating her dreams by overcoming every little thing.
Millie Never Gave Up on Her Passion For Singing
Acting is just one of the many talents of this incredible star. We know you might be wondering how Millie sings and raps so flawlessly that she cannot hear for one year. Well, let us tell you that talent comes from within and it doesn’t matter who you are or where you are lacking if you have the passion to succeed. When Millie rapped live on Jimmy Fallon’s talk show at a young age, she had blown away not only the audience but also the host.
So, while having an interview with Today, she said, “I just started to sing, and if I sound bad I don’t care because I’m just doing what I love,” “You don’t have to be good at singing. You don’t have to be good at dancing or acting. If you like to do it, if you genuinely enjoy doing it, then do it. No one should stop you.”
And it is true to a great extent.
Millie doesn’t consider her partial deafness to be something that can stop her from achieving greatness; that is how it should be. Her achievements over the years are solely due to her hard work and there is no denying it. Millie Bobby Brown is a true inspiration for young girls and adults who feel like a physical deficiency can limit their success. So, there is a lot to learn from Millie Bobby Brown!
