The interpreter of Eleven “would not even need to pass casting”!
While fans of Stranger Things are eagerly awaiting the second part of season 4 (see you from July 1 on Netflix), one of its main actresses, Millie Bobby Brownwould be in full discussions with Kathleen Kennedy, the boss of Lucasfilm, to join a future film or series Star Wars. The Mirror reports the comments of a source close to these negotiations, but this one prefers to remain anonymous, so for the moment, all this is to be taken with a grain of salt.
“Millie is on Disney’s radar for future projects Star Wars, explains this source. She got in touch with Kathleen, who is aware of her desire to play a central role in a film or a series for Disney+. These exchanges are informal, but there is great mutual respect. The studio producers know what a star she is, capable of attracting a wide audience of 10 to 30 years old. She could easily earn a minimum of $15 million for a first film or series in the saga. And she wouldn’t even need to go through a casting: in a case like that, it will be more a question of the bond created between the director and her. She is mature enough to play an important role in this universe.”
