Millie Bobby Brown’s Net Worth
Millie Bobby Brown’s net worth is a jaw-dropping $10 million, as of March 1, 2021. That’s pretty impressive, considering her young age and relatively short career as a professional actress.
Much of Brown’s $10 million net worth comes from her acting career, the bulk of which is attributed to her salary from Stranger Things.
Millie reportedly earned $10,000 per episode for her role in Stranger Things. That translated to some $80,000 for the entire season.
For the second season of Stranger Things, Millie Brown’s salary rose to $30,000 per episode, or about $270,000 for the season. And for the third season, the actress took home a whopping $300,000 per episode, which translated to around $2.7 million for the season.
Besides Stranger Things, Enola Holmes is Millie Bobby Brown’s other major income earner.
In November 2019, it was reported that Millie Brown would earn $6.1 million to star in the movie. That amount was exclusive of production credits. As a producer, Brown would earn $500,000 per day, as well as an additional $800,000 worth of bonuses if the movie’s profits crossed certain figures. So, Brown might have easily made at least $7 million from Enola Holmes (before taxes and fees).
But that’s not all. The actress was also guaranteed $7.5 million as base salary if Enola Holmes ever spawns a sequel.
In addition to acting, Millie Bobby Brown also makes money from endorsements.
In November 2016, Brown appeared in an advertisement for Citigroup. Other notable brands that Millie has endorsed include Calvin Klein and Moncler.

3. Leave your mark
Millie Bobby Brown has achieved monumental success both in and out of the entertainment industry. On November 20, 2018, it was announced that Brown had been appointed a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, becoming the youngest person ever to hold that prestigious position.
