In an interview with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show, Millie revealed how disheartened she was after getting rejected for Game of Thrones. She was so broken to the point she had considered leaving the acting industry for good.

Brown said, “I think I was just very disheartened by the rejection, which is something I tell everyone. This industry is just full of rejection 24/7. You get ‘No’s, a lot of ‘No’s, before you get a ‘Yes.’ And I was auditioning for commercials, for anything really. I then auditioned for Game of Thrones and I got a ‘No’ for that.”

Then, that’s when I was like, ‘This is really difficult,’ and I guess I really wanted that role. So one of my last sort of goes at all this was a show called Montauk,” she further added.


The 16-year-old actress rose to fame after she played the role of Eleven in Netflix’s Stranger Things. She recently played the lead role in the movie Enola Holmes. It is inspiring how young stars are learning to deal with failure at such an early stage. Game of Thrones actress Maisie Williams had to face a ‘no’ even after the success of the show and dealt with it quite maturely.
