Millie Bobby Brown and Henry Cavill portray siblings in the “Enola Holmes” movies on Netflix, but off-screen, the two have developed a close bond that has its “terms and conditions,” in the words of the “Stranger Things” actor. The 18-year-old starlet discussed how her connection with Cavill varies from her interactions with her “Stranger Things” co-stars in a recent interview with Deadline. She also disclosed the one subject the Sherlock Holmes actor has made off-limits.
“It looks to be a grown-up bond with Henry,” Brown remarked. “similar to a real and healthy friendship For starters, there are terms and conditions.”
Her relationships with her “Stranger Things” co-stars, including Noah Schnapp and Charlie Heaton, are less constrained because they grew up together. “It’s unusual since Noah and Charlie were my childhood friends. When I was ten, we first spoke. Therefore, to me, it does resemble your classmates “She remarked.
The “Enola Holmes” actress is closer to the 39-year-old Cavill, who has very tight rules around his private life. I’m not allowed to inquire about his personal life, Brown retorted. “Millie, shut up,” it sounds like. No.’ And I respond, “Understood.” It’s different with the ‘Stranger Things kids, though. There are no boundaries since it seems like we are all siblings. But Henry treats me fairly harshly, which I appreciate.
The professionalism they uphold has, if anything, strengthened their working relationship. Director Harry Bradbeer of “Enola Holmes 2” told Deadline that the performers’ dissimilar personalities contributed to the feeling of authenticity in their on-screen sibling connection as Enola and Sherlock Holmes. In a similar vein as Sherlock, Bradbeer observed, “Henry has a very rational attitude but is learning more and more to have fun and be spontaneous.” Of course, Millie and he had this endearing relationship where they were constantly making fun of one another. He was also shocked and mildly tickled by Millie. And he accepts it.
Cavill, on the other hand, is an only child, so Brown has made it her mission to give him the whole little sister experience while they are filming. He doesn’t have any sisters, so it’s startling, she remarked. It must thus be very different for him. I have three siblings: a brother, a sister, and a younger brother. Consequently, I’m used to that kind of dynamic. I had to apply a lot of it to our relationship, both on and off-screen, to force Henry out of his comfort zone.
