A new report suggests Netflix’s Stranger Things fame Millie Bobby Brown will likely receive a whopping pay increase to reprise her role in the third season of the wildly popular series. Brown portrays the character of Eleven, a teen girl with psychokinetic abilities in sci-fi drama Stranger Things.
According to a report coming from TMZ, the 14-year-old actress has received a $3 million dollar raise for the third season of Stranger Things. As per the report, Stranger Things child actors including Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin Henderson), Noah Schnapp (Will Byers), Finn Wolfhard (Mike Wheeler), and Caleb McLaughlin (Lucas Sinclair) will receive $250,000 per episode, up from about $17,000 per episode. The only exception is Brown who will reportedly receive $350,000 per episode.
If the report is true, the teenage actress’s pay will be the same as the salaries of the lead actors of the series David Harbour and Winona Ryder. Brown will likely make about $3.15 million over the season’s nine episodes. The pay raise also hints that Brown’s character Eleven will have a more expanded and prominent role in Stranger Things season 3.
An earlier report had revealed that Brown’s team negotiated separately from the rest of the child co-stars asked for a $500k per episode raise.
Stranger Things season 3 will be set six months from when Eleven closes the Upside Down. It is expected that the upcoming season will see the relationship between Mike and Eleven and Max and Lucas grow strong. The events will take place in summer. The season three production is scheduled to begin on April 23 and it will wrap on October 2. The series will likely premiere in fall 2019, most probably in late January or February.
Recently, Millie Bobby Brown took to Twitter to post a picture that suggests that she is all set to begin filming for season 3. You can check out the picture below.
