Millie Bobby Brown made her acting debut on television, portraying Young Alice in 2 episodes of the ABC fantasy drama TV series Once Upon a Time in Wonderland (2013). Brown’s first major role came a year later in BBC America’s TV series Intruders (2014). The then-10-year-old Brown was cast as one of the lead characters, playing 9-year-old Madison O’Donnell. The supernatural series had Brown’s character’s body possessed by a returning soul. The series centered around a secret society known as Qui Reverti, whose members could return as souls to inhabit a new body.

Brown’s O’Donnell’s character becomes a focus in the series when Marcus Fox, a serial killer, returns to take possession of her body. Madison O’Donnell’s soul struggles with Marcus Fox to retain her body. Despite positive ratings from audiences, Intruders was canceled after the first season. Its 8-episode season is a must-watch for Millie Bobby Brown fans who haven’t seen her in action at an early age.

Besides being cast as the narrator in the “Chorus of the Cosmos” segment of Spheres: Songs of Spacetime (2018), Millie Bobby Brown made her first movie appearance in 2019. Brown was cast in a supporting role in Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019) as Dr. Mark Russell (Kyle Chandler) and Dr. Emma Russell’s (Vera Farmiga) 12-year-old daughter, Madison Russell. Although the movie was the third in the MonsterVerse, overall, it was the 35th movie in the Godzilla franchise. Godzilla: King of the Monsters was a box office disappointment when marketing cost is factored in. Although it grossed $387.3 million at the Box Office, with a production budget of $170–200 million, marketing costs rose to as high as $100–150 million.

However, its sequel, Godzilla vs. Kong (2021), fared a lot better at the Box Office despite the COVID-19 pandemic. Millie Bobby Brown reprised her role as Madison Russell in a lead role. Her character, who has grown since the events of the last movie, becomes the advocate for Godzilla. Godzilla vs. Kong (2021), produced at $155–200 million, grossed $470.1 million at the Box Office and broke even. It was the eighth-highest-grossing film of 2021.
