Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown, 16, can officially hit the road. 

In a new interview with W, Millie revealed that she achieved a major teenage accomplishment while living through the coronavirus pandemic. "I got my driver's license in quarantine," the actress told the outlet. "It was very strange taking a socially distanced driving test."

Getting behind the wheel as a solo driver has been a long journey for Millie, who will next appear as Sherlock Holmes' younger, feisty sister in Netflix's Enola Holmes. Back in May of 2019, Millie shared her excitement over obtaining her learner's permit on Instagram.

"i passed! yay ! watch out cuz MBB is on the road...(with a parent or supervisor over 21 with a valid license lol)," the actress joked at the time.

Learning to drive wasn't the only social-distanced activity Millie has been spending time on. In her W interview, Millie shared that in addition to watching a lot of Friends (she even channeled Jennifer Aniston's Rachel Green for the W photoshoot) she has been doing "lots and lots of arts and crafts." 

Millie Bobby Brown's Milestones Through the Years

"My little sister and I painted, did lots of tie-dying, and I think I bejeweled everything in the house," MBB revealed to the magazine. 

Millie's Netflix series Stranger Things, which catapulted the young star to fame along with actors like Finn Wolfhard, 17, and Sadie Sink, 18, was forced to press pause early into filming of season four due to the coronavirus pandemic—giving Millie ample time to work on her art and driving skills.

Fortunately for fans anxious to hear about the fate of Millie's character Eleven, there's even more to come.


"Season four won't be the end," Ross Duffer, co-creator of the series alongside his brother Matt, told The Hollywood Reporter. "We know what the end is, and we know when it is. [The pandemic] has given us time to look ahead, figure out what is best for the show."

Whenever the end of Stranger Things does come around, Eleven can finally drive the rest of the Hawkins squad off into the sunset.
