The sequel to Enola Holmes features Millie Bobby Brown's character Enola finishing what was started in the first film. At least in regards to relationships.

An intimacy coordinator—a professional choreographer who works with actors to negotiate intimate scenes before they happen in filming or on stage—critiqued some of Brown's actions the actor shared in an interview released by Netflix.

In one scene of the sequel, Enola kisses Lord Tewkesbury. The tension builds throughout the film, with Tewkesbury teaching Enola to dance, then later her teaching him to fight.

During the latter scene, Enola punches Tewkesbury a few times then grabs him to kiss him. A charming resolution to the tension.

Netflix released an interview of Brown discussing filming that scene.

Brown shared some things the intimacy coordinator found unsettling.

“Right on the rehearsal I grabbed his face and kissed him...It was so cute really seeing her take the lead. And also seeing a girl just make the first move is just really exciting.”

Here's Brown's interview.

Later in the interview she talks about punching her co-star for real.

“Because Louis is a good friend I just kept punching him, I wasn’t doing stunts, I really was hurting him. By the end of it, he said: ‘Millie can you just fake punch me,’ I was fully just getting him right in the stomach.”

Here's the response from the intimacy coordinator.


#stitch with @netflix consent is mandatory. We don’t need to surprise kiss, we don’t need to actually hit… #hollywood #enolaholmes #milliebobbybrown

Reactions to the interview from Netflix were generally positive about the movie itself.

Although some people were also unsettled by Brown's actions.





On the stitch from the intimacy coordinator, comments were less timid in calling out the interview revelations.


Some people said if a kiss is scripted, the actors should know it's coming.


However, others replied it's one thing to have it in the script and another to do it improvised.



As even the intimacy coordinator points out in the video, Brown is pretty young and there's time to learn.


Someone else pointed out Brown has not had experiences regarding her own personal boundaries.


As this reply has gone a bit viral, maybe Brown will receive the feedback and take it to heart.
