Stranger Things actor Matthew Modine said he went to great lengths to protect Millie Bobby Brown from being ‘destroyed’ by fame.

The British actress won the part of Eleven in the smash hit Netflix sci-fi drama, which also stars Winona Ryder, at the tender age of 12, swiftly becoming a household name.

Matthew, meanwhile, was a veteran performer, having been in films such as Full Metal Jacket, when he joined the series set in the 80s, playing the role of Dr Martin Brenner.

The Dark Knight Rises actor joins Jonathan Ross on his talk show on Saturday night, alongside Craig David, Katherine Ryan, Oti Mabuse, Josh Jones and indie darlings Wet Leg, where he discusses Millie’s ascent to the big time.

Asked about working with Millie, when she was at such a young age and new to the industry, the 63-year-old responds: ‘[I was] wanting to be protective of her. How the business changed, when you saw me in Birdy to today… if a movie was successful in 20 or 30 countries around the world, that would be an enormous success.

‘Netflix is in over 190 territories around the world. So what Millie was subject to was global. What she was exposed to – and what all the children on this show were exposed to – was a kind of fame and popularity and notoriety that ever existed in the entertainment industry.’

He continued: ‘Over the course of my career, [there have been] young actors and actresses whose lives were destroyed by that kind of fame and money and everything. It can be very destructive and disorienting.

Eleven isn’t the only one having nightmares.

Millie Bobby Brown is terrified that she will break the fourth wall when filming for the upcoming season of “Stranger Things” — something her character does all the time on “Enola Holmes.”

“While filming, I had a dream that I was on the set of ‘Stranger Things,’ and I couldn’t stop looking at the camera. And now, I have this deep-rooted fear that now I will never stop looking at the camera,” the young actress said during a Q&A panel at the New York premiere of “Enola Holmes 2,” according to Today.com.

“So now, I’m so obsessed with it.”

In the Sherlock Holmes spin-off, Brown plays a young detective who will often talk to the camera when she makes new discoveries in her cases, which the 18-year-old describes as “vlogging on YouTube all day long.”

“It’s like, ‘Come along with me on another journey. I wake up. I go on another case,’ I mean, it’s amazing,” she noted.

Millie Bobby Brown wants to make ‘Stranger Things’ into “more of a musical.”

The 18-year-old actress has starred as Eleven on the Netflix sci-fi hit since its inception in 2016 and explained that even though she says some things as a “joke”, she would “love” to write a musical episode for the show.

She said: “I say things like I wanted [Eleven] to get married, but then I also said I want her to die. I really don’t know. And also, it’s not my choice. I say all these things really just under my breath, and then people take them and print them. And I’m like, no, no, no – I said that as a joke, that I wanted her to get married and work at a Target. That was a joke. But it’s maybe not a joke. I’d love to be the writer! I’d make it more of a musical!”

The ‘Enola Homes’ star went on to claim that for its finale – which is reportedly due to air in 2024 – the show should take inspiration from the sitcom ‘It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia’, which featured an all-singing, all-dancing episode as part of its fourth season.

She told Total Film magazine: “But, you know, they don’t entrust it in the hands of me, which they should [laughs]. Trust me: I can do the finale to ‘Stranger Things’, and it would be great. I think it should be like ‘It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia’. Did you ever see the musical episode? It needs to end like that – a musical episode!”

The fifth season of Stranger Things is expected to be the show’s last, and it will likely be released in 2024. There’s been a lot of speculation about how the show should end, and some of the cast has their own ideas. Maya Hawke (Robin Buckley) recently said that she wouldn’t mind if her character died. Millie Bobby Brown (Eleven) recently had a chat with Total Film (via Games Radar) and gave some suggestions of her own, including the idea of a musical episode.

“Probably when I’m filming, I won’t even know how it ends,” Brown shared. “I know as much as you know. I really, really am clueless. And, also, they don’t want to tell me. I’ve got a huge mouth.” Total Film mentioned that Brown previously said that she wanted Eleven and Finn Wolfhard’s Mike Wheeler to stay together, and she replied, “I say things like this, but then I also said I want her to die. I really don’t know. And also, it’s not my choice. I say all these things really just under my breath, and then people take them and print them. And I’m like, no, no, no – I said that as a joke, that I wanted her to get married and work at a Target. That was a joke. But it’s maybe not a joke?”

Brown added, “I’d love to be the writer! I’d make it more of a musical … But, you know, they don’t entrust it in the hands of me, which they should [laughs]. Trust me. I can do the finale to Stranger Things, and it would be great. I think it should be like It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia. Did you ever see the musical episode?
