Millie was acting before she had even turned 10.

She made her acting debut in 2013 as a guest star in ABC fantasy drama series Once Upon a Time in Wonderland, which was a spin-off of the much-loved Once Upon a Time.

Millie portrayed the role of young Alice in the show, before being booked for BBC America paranormal thriller Intruders the following year.

Millie gained attention and popularity in the industry following her early roles and was then booked guest-starring roles on several hit TV shows, including Modern Family, Grey’s Anatomy and NCIS.
