At 19 Millie Bobby Brown is an Emmy-nominated actress, Hollywood A-lister, UNICEF ambassador and now an author. But to many it will come as a surprise to learn that the teenage star of Stranger Things was actually born with partial hearing loss which over the years has progressed into full deafness in one ear.
The British actress shared rare details of her condition with Variety in 2017, and admitted that she doesn’t let it stop her from doing anything she enjoys.
“I just started to sing, and if I sound bad I don’t care, because I’m just doing what I love,” she told the publication. “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.”
