England, 1884 – a world on the brink of change. On the morning of her 16th birthday, Enola Holmes (Millie Bobby Brown) wakes to find that her mother (Helena Bonham Carter) has disappeared, leaving behind an odd assortment of gifts but no apparent clue as to where she’s gone or why. After a free-spirited childhood, Enola suddenly finds herself under the care of her brothers Sherlock (Henry Cavill) and Mycroft (Sam Claflin), both set on sending her away to a finishing school for “proper” young ladies. Refusing to follow their wishes, Enola escapes to search for her mother in London. But when her journey finds her entangled in a mystery surrounding a young runaway Lord (Louis Partridge), Enola becomes a super-sleuth in her own right, outwitting her famous brother as she unravels a conspiracy that threatens to set back the course of history. Based on the beloved book series by Nancy Springer, ENOLA HOLMES is a dynamic new mystery-adventure that introduces the world’s greatest detective to his fiercest competition yet: his teenage sister. The game is afoot.
MILLIE BOBBY BROWN (Producer/Enola Holmes) Millie Bobby Brown has quickly established herself
as a one of the industry’s most exciting young actresses. Born in Spain to British parents and raised
globally, Brown is one of those rare raw talents who has been able to captivate viewers with her
engaging performances at such a young age.
Brown is best known for her performance as the iconic Eleven in the Emmy-nominated Netflix series
STRANGER THINGS, for which she garnered international attention and critical praise. The first
season, created by Matt and Ross Duffer, follows the disappearance of a young boy in a small town.
Eleven is a young girl with many psychokinetic gifts and a mysterious past. Critics applauded Brown’s
“note-perfect” (Variety) and “career-launching performance” (The New Yorker), noting how “with few
words, she manages to evoke a cacophony of emotion, from terror to tender young love” (Los Angeles
Times). Brown and the show were nominated for a Screen Actors Guild Award two years in a row in the
categories of “Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series” and “Outstanding
Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series” for Season 1 and Season 2, with the ensemble taking
home the award for season one. The ensemble recently received another SAG nomination this year on
behalf of Season 3 3. Brown also received individual Primetime Emmy Award nominations for Seasons
1 and 2 in the category of “Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series.” In May 2017, Brown won the
first ever Best Actor in a Show MTV Movie & TV Award, and won Best Performance in a Show for her
performance the following season.
In May 2019, Brown made her feature film debut in Michael Dougherty’s GODZILLA: KING OF THE
MONSTERS opposite Vera Farmiga, Kyle Chandler and Sally Hawkins. She will return as Madison in the
next film in the franchise, GODZILLA VS. KONG, which Warner Bros. and Legendary will release on
May 21, 2021.
Brown recently completed production on the feature film ENOLA HOLMES, based on the popular
Nancy Springer book series. Brown stars in the title role as the younger sister of famed Detective,
Sherlock Holmes. When her mother mysteriously disappears on her 16th birthday, Enola seeks help
from her older brothers. But soon realizing they’re less interested in solving the case than in packing
her off to finishing school, Enola does the only thing a smart, resourceful and fearless young 1880s
woman can do: she runs away to London to find her. Brown serves as a producer on the film as well.
Directed by Harry Bradbeer, Brown stars opposite Sam Claflin, Henry Cavill, Helena Bonham Carter
and Fiona Shaw in this epic tale.
It was also announced that Brown and her sister Paige Brown will partner with Netflix on the film A
TIME LOST, which is currently in development. The original story idea comes from the sisters, who will
also produce through PCMA Productions. Anna Klassen is attached to write the screenplay. The story
follows a long-standing feud between two Long Island families that comes to a head when one of their
teenage daughters is diagnosed with cancer.
Other television and film credits include ONCE UPON A TIME IN WONDERLAND, INTRUDERS,
MODERN FAMILY, GREY’S ANATOMY and NCIS.
In 2019, Brown launched her own vegan and cruelty-free makeup and skincare line, florence by mills.
On November 20, 2018, UNICEF named Brown the organization’s newest Goodwill Ambassador. The
appointment – marked on World Children’s Day at United Nations Headquarters and the Empire State Building in New York – made her UNICEF’s youngest-ever Goodwill Ambassador. Earlier that year, Brown was also named one of TIME magazine’s 100 Most Influential People. She is currently the youngest TIME 100 honoree.
