Millie Bobby Brown has said that her Enola Holmes co-star Henry Cavill is 'very strict' when it comes to setting boundaries on set.
The 18-year-old first worked with Cavill on Netflix's mystery movie in 2020, and now the pair are back as Sherlock Holmes and his younger sister for the sequel, Enola Holmes 2.
It comes following the release of the fourth series of Stranger Things; the show which saw Brown rise to fame, alongside her other young cast mates, in her starring role as Eleven.
In an interview with Deadline, the actor explained that there were 'no boundaries' on the Stranger Things set because it felt like she and her co-stars were 'all siblings'.
Things are different with Enola Holmes, however, because she didn't 'grow up' with Cavill like she did with Stranger Things stars Noah Schnapp and Charlie Heaton.
Brown explained: "It’s different because I grew up with Noah and Charlie. I met them when I was 10. So, for me, it does feel like your schoolmates. And with Henry, it feels like a real adult relationship. Like a really good friendship, a really healthy one."
She went on to describe her relationship with Cavill, 39, as one that has 'terms and conditions'.
"I know Henry. He has terms and conditions with me," she said. "I’m not allowed to ask about his personal life. It’s like, “Millie, shut up. No.” And I’m like “Understood.” Whereas with the Stranger Things kids, it’s different. There’s no boundaries because it’s like we’re all siblings. But with Henry, he’s very strict with me, which I appreciate."
Brown went on to describe her experience on Enola Holmes as 'pivotal' in her acting career and praised director Harry Bradbeer for his 'attention to detail', saying that is what 'makes the film so immersive'.
"Everyone on set knows Harry and his way and his spirit. The dedication to the film is unlike all of us put together. So yes, it does come down to performance, but it also very much comes down to directing and being able to have a connection with your director."
"It’s a dream come true," she continued. "As for me, I learned many things, because I’m an upcoming young woman and that is a real learning curve for me. This is a very big pivotal moment within my career and my life. This is the first role I’ve really led."
Also starring alongside Cavill and Brown in the film are David Thewlis, Louis Partridge and Susan Wokoma.
Enola Holmes 2 is now streaming on Netflix.
