Millie Bobby Brown has revealed what she misses from the UK when she is filming in America and how much she loved shooting Enola Holmes in London

The Stranger Things star, 16, has spent most of her time working in the USA after her family relocated to Florida and admitted it was lovely to be surrounded by ‘my people’ while in the UK. 

She told Mark Wright on his Heart Evening Show: ‘On set I used to have a good cup of tea with digestives, almost every morning and I had a Lucozade when I needed some energy.

‘I think just for me, I loved hearing the accent all day long, the banter, don’t get me wrong I love working in America, but you know obviously home is home for me and I loved working with my people.’ 

Millie stars as the title role on Enola Holmes, the younger sister of Sherlock Holmes (Henry Cavill), which will be release on Netflix on September 23. 

She and her family moved to Florida from Dorset when she was eight in order for her to pursue a career in acting.

Millie used her time filming in the UK to meet up with friends and family when she was finished with work. 

She added that she even hung out with Mark’s family after they grew close when he was presenting Extra in LA: ‘It was amazing, it was so fun, obviously I was literally meeting up with your family whilst I was filming and they saw some nights, I was definitely more tired than I’ve ever worked before.

‘I was definitely pushing myself through, it was challenging but I absolutely enjoyed every second of it, it was so much fun.’

Mark added that there were nights when he would hang out with Millie’s family and by 11.30pm she still wouldn’t be home from set. 

She explained: ‘Yes, I push myself all the time, I’m always working, always finding something to do, I love work.

‘I’m not obsessed with it, just because that would be unhealthy, but I definitely love working and keeping myself busy and learning new things.’

As well as starring in Enola Holmes, Millie is also a producer for the project, but she says she felt she was too young to get that role at first. 

‘When I read the book, I knew I wanted to bring this to life. My dad and I, and my older sister Paige, we came together with our production company, PCMA and we found a studio to then make the film Legendary, and then we found a writer and a director. 

‘My family and I really began this journey of Enola so that’s how it came along. My dad said to me, you should be part of the production.

‘I was like, “Is that even a thing? Is that allowed, how old do you have to be to be a producer? I thought there was an age limit” and he was like, “No, I bet you there isn’t” so I was like, “alright!”

‘So we’ve got a producer credit, this is the role I’m taking, and I put my head down, I went on set, and I basically was behind the production as well as being on screen.’

Enola Holmes will be released on September 23 on Netflix.
