Millie Bobby Brown has become a bloodthirsty Hollywood elite... kinda.

Okay, mostly she just wants to be able to take an easier cast photo. According to her, the current size of the cast makes getting everyone into one shot almost impossible.

And it's got to be even harder if Millie is trying to take a selfie with the cast. The brilliant Brit is only 5'4" and it's not like she's got long enough arms to get everyone in frame.

Sure, she could get a selfie stick, or ask someone else to take the picture, or just keep doing what she's been doing and squeeze really tightly into the shot.

But Ms. Brown has another solution in mind, and it's a bit extreme.

In a recent interview with The Wrap, Millie Bobby Brown and Noah Schnapp—Eleven and Will—both agreed that the cast had gotten way too large.

Noah suggested that one of the core "kid" cast members needed to die for dramatic effect, and Millie jumped on that idea quickly.

She based her reasoning on a frustrating cast picture experience the night before.

"It's way too big. Last night, we couldn't even take one group picture because there was like 50 of us."
"I was like, 'You need to start killing people off.' "

Noah suggested a huge massacre scene to kill off multiple characters might fit the bill.

Seemingly delighted with the idea, Millie continued the thought.

"That's what I'm saying! This is ridiculous."
"And also, the Duffer Brothers are two sensitive Sallies that don’t want to kill anyone off."
"We need to be Game of Thrones. We need to have the mindset of Game of Thrones."

You can see the duo get dark at around 2 minutes, 18 seconds.

News of their bloody battle plans got back to the Duffer brothers, who assured fans and followers that they have no intention of turning Hawkins into the Wild Wild Westeros.

They got a chance to talk about it on the Happy Sad Confused podcast:

"We heard. What did Millie call us?"
"She said we were 'sensitive Sallies.' She's hilarious."
"Believe us, we've explored all options in the writing room."
"This is Hawkins, it's not Westeros."
"The show becomes not Stranger Things anymore because you do have to treat it realistically, right?"

The Duffer brothers then spent some time talking about how death isn't necessarily off the table for the show, but the deaths have to serve a purpose and have meaningful impact.

That's especially true as we draw closer to the resolution of the series.

They made sure to clarify they weren't giving spoilers or anything. Their statement had a specific purpose... and that purpose was to tell Millie she was a meaniehead.


"This is me basically defending myself against these Millie Bobby Brown accusations and explaining that there are lives behind it, and it's nothing to do with my sensitivity."
"So there you go Millie."

So there you go, indeed.

Noah Schnapp may have floated murderous intent, but Millie Bobby Brown had no problem letting the world know she might just be #TeamVecna as long as it makes cast photo ops easier.
