    In an interview, where she was named Woman of the Year, conducted before the actors' strike, Millie Bobby Brown likened the conclusion of her popular Netflix series to the feeling of graduating from high school.

    She expressed, "When you're prepared, you're like, 'All right, let's do this. Let's tackle this last senior year. Let's get out of here.' 'Stranger Things' demands a substantial amount of time for filming, and it's been holding me back from pursuing stories that truly ignite my passion. So, I'm ready to bid it a heartfelt 'Thank you, and goodbye.'"
