Who is Millie Bobby Brown? Apparently a lot of people were wondering this year.
Brown, who plays Eleven on Netflix hit Stranger Things, made IMDb‘s list of most viewed celebrities this year, coming in at No. 3 after Game of Thrones‘ Emilia Clarke (No. 2) and Suicide Squad‘s Margot Robbie (No. 1). Internet-breaker Tom Hardy and Deadpool star Morena Baccarin made the top 5.
Brown also topped IMDb’s list of breakout stars, based on weekly views over the year. Haley Bennett, Tom Holland, Brie Larson, and Stranger Things co-star Natalia Dyer rounded out the top 5.
Season 2 of Stranger Things is set to debut in 2017, but Brown’s IMDb credits will no doubt expand beyond the series in the next few years. Keith Simanton, IMDb’s senior film critic, noted of the female-heavy top 10 most-viewed list:
“These actresses are portraying remarkable female characters at the center of movie action this year, often protagonists in genres where women just didn’t excel before: action, comic books, and sci-fi.”
Here’s the full list:
1) Margot Robbie
2) Emilia Clarke
3) Millie Bobby Brown
4) Tom Hardy
5) Morena Baccarin
6) Gal Gadot
7) Alicia Vikander
8) Daisy Ridley
9) Haley Bennett
10) Leonardo DiCaprio
