FIVE THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW

ELLE (Australia) - - Life -

1. SHE FIRST LEARNT TO SKATE FOR STRANGER THINGS

“There’s a video of me get­ting on the skate­board and, trust me, it’s re­ally not pretty. It was bad. I had no con­trol over the board what­so­ever. I’ve come a long way since then. I don’t know [if Max im­proves], but if she does, I should prob­a­bly be skate­board­ing a bit more than I am right now!”

2. THE CAST MEM­BERS ARE

HER SE­COND FAM­ILY

“Mil­lie [Bobby Brown] and I sing ev­ery­thing – a lot of Adele, and lately we’ve been singing this Lady Gaga duet with Florence Welch called ‘Hey Girl’. Ev­ery­one is friends with ev­ery­one [on the cast of Stranger Things]; we’re ba­si­cally broth­ers and sis­ters at this point. Very oc­ca­sion­ally there’ll be lit­tle ar­gu­ments, but two sec­onds later we’re like, ‘Hey, do you want to grab lunch to­gether?’”

3. SHE DOESN’T

LIKE PAR­TIES

“There is ac­tu­ally noth­ing worse than hav­ing ‘Happy Birth­day’ sung to you. It’s so awk­ward! I don’t like be­ing the cen­tre of at­ten­tion at a party — in fact, I just hate par­ties in gen­eral. I went to see

The Play That Goes Wrong for my 16th birth­day, and that was my way of cel­e­brat­ing [the day in­stead].”

4. SHE SUP­PORTS VE­GAN BUSI­NESSES

“Peo­ple don’t re­alise the im­pact of the leather and fur in­dus­tries on an­i­mals. Rooney Mara and I were able to hang out in Los An­ge­les a bit, and she wanted to know if I’d be in­ter­ested in wear­ing her ve­gan cloth­ing line [Hi­raeth] for a few events, and I was like, ‘Of course!’ Not only is it ve­gan, but it ac­tu­ally kind of matches my style as well. My favourite ve­gan restau­rant is in LA – it’s called Cross­roads Kitchen and is scary-good.”

5. SHE’S DE­MAND­ING

CHANGE NOW

“Just like with March For Our Lives, this new gen­er­a­tion is us­ing its voice more and re­ally tak­ing ac­tion, which is very spe­cial. The younger gen­er­a­tion feels strongly about shap­ing a world we want to live in when we grow up – that’s why ev­ery­one is so vo­cal and in­volved. And that’s what makes me ex­cited about see­ing peo­ple com­ing to­gether and march­ing. A lot of younger girls are get­ting in­volved in #Timesup and the #Metoo move­ments, too. I’m so happy women are find­ing their voices.”
