CareerIn 2013, a 9-year-old Millie made her acting debut in the fantasy series "Once Upon a Time in Wonderland" in two episodes of which the girl played a young Alice. The main character was Australian actress Sophie Lowe.
I’ve been acting since I was 9, so not exactly a baby. Acting, you can kind of go by instinct. Or you can go to school if you really want to try, but right now people look for kids with instinct, who are very natural, and that is what I try to do.During the following year, the young actress got the lead role in BBC America’s paranormal drama-thriller series "Intruders ". Millie played Madison O'Donnell - a 9-year-old girl, who had nightmares and excruciating headaches after meeting with a mysterious stranger on the beach.

In 2016, the girl was offered to play one of the main characters in the new Netflix science fiction-horror series - "Stranger Things" by the Duffer brothers. After a single audition, Brown got the role of Eleven - daughter of Terry Ives (actress Aimee Mullins), a mysterious girl with psychic powers. She met friends her own age who were investigating the mysterious disappearance of their friend.
Millie had to shave off all of her hair for filming. The girl was fortunate to work with Winona Ryder and David Harbour, as well as the beginning actors: Finn Wolfhard, Gaten Matarazzo and Caleb McLaughlin on the set.
The creators of the series were delighted with Millie's acting. Unlike most of the child actors, she adapted to the cameras position and the shooting conditions. Occasionally, the team forgot about her age (at the moment of filming the first season she was 11 years old), but sometimes she was acting like a child. Once Brown came on a shoot full covered in sequins and to the question where she got them, she answered: "I have no idea." It took about an hour to wash the young actress.
Brown was nominated for the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series.
