Logan was a perfect movie and a perfect end to the most beloved Wolverine ever. But could it have been better if Millie Bobby Brown had played the role of Laura?

Most people only ever saw Millie for the first time in the first season of Stranger Things. But she had a major acting gig before that. She starred as young Alice in the spinoff series of 'Once Upon A Time' called 'Once Upon A Time In Wonderland'. It sadly only got one season and was not able to live up to the success of the original series.

Millie is one of the few girls in the Stranger Things series. And as you can imagine things can get overwhelming for one girl to have to deal with so many boys. So, on days when she just couldn't stand the boys, she admitted to going to Winona to just have a little girl time. And in those moments the two formed a strong bond.

3. She is afraid of the dark


Aren't most kids afraid of the dark? Yeah, even some adults are still afraid of the dark but despite dealing with so many strange things on her Netflix show, she isn't very fond of dark places.

2. Many people think that she looks like a young Carrie Fisher
