Stranger Things wouldn’toldn’t be Stranger Things with­out Eleven and her su­per­nat­u­ral pow­ers. But as it turns out, Mil­lie Bobby Brown’s char­ac­ter was sup­posed to die dur­ing the first sea­son!

“Eleven was go­ing to sac­ri­fice her­self to save the day,” co-cre­ator Ross Duf­fer has re­vealed in Stranger Things: Worlds Turned Up­side Down – a new book about the suc­cess­ful Net­flix se­ries, which first hit screens in 2016.

At the end of Sea­son One, Eleven killed the mon­strous De­mogor­gon, then dis­ap­peared from Hawkins for much of the sec­ond sea­son.

So could the iconic Eleven still be killed off when the third sea­son airs in 2019? Well, that’s the ru­mour!

“That was al­ways the end game,” adds Ross, who also says that Joe Keery’s jock char­ac­ter Steve Har­ring­ton was set to die too, and that the up­com­ing third sea­son will be the “gross­est yet”.

But if Brit-born Mil­lie, 14, has her way, she’ll be play­ing Eleven for a while yet.

“My char­ac­ter’s just so, so per­fect for me,” she says. “I def­i­nitely think we re­late to each other a lot.”
