Millie Bobby Brown has revealed that co-star Henry Cavill set ‘strict’ boundaries in their friendship when filming Enola Holmes.
The Stranger Things star, 19, and Man of Steel actor, 40, reunited for the Netflix sequel, Enola Holmes 2.
Brown played Sherlock Holmes’ (Cavill) younger sister, who embarks on solving her own mystery.
When Enola Holmes was released on the streaming service in 2020, it came out with a huge success and topped the Netflix film streaming charts.

In a recent interview with Deadline, Brown opened up about her relationship with Cavill and whether they get on.
The actress explained that her relationship on set with him is different to the bond she has with her Stranger Things co-stars due to him having ‘strict’ boundaries on set, as well as their age difference.
Brown told the outlet: “It’s different because I grew up with Noah [Schnapp] and Charlie [Heaton]. I met them when I was 10. So, for me, it does feel like your schoolmates.
“And with Henry, it feels like a real adult relationship. Like a really good friendship, a really healthy one.
“One that we have terms and conditions. I know Henry. He has terms and conditions with me. I’m not allowed to ask about his personal life. It’s like, ‘Millie, shut up. No’. And I’m like, ‘Understood’.
“Whereas with the Stranger Things kids, it’s different. There are no boundaries because it’s like we’re all siblings. But with Henry, he’s very strict with me, which I appreciate.”
Brown did add that for the sequel, they really wanted to bring Cavill out of his ‘comfort zone’.
The 19-year-old actress continued: “It’s shocking because he doesn’t have any sisters. So, for him, it must be completely different.
“I have a sister, a brother, and an older brother. So, I’m very much used to that kind of dynamic.
“I had to implement a lot of that into my relationship with Henry offscreen and onscreen and just pull him out of his comfort zone.”
Brown also spoke about how important this role was for her, as the film constantly depicts her not being able to have a voice and being undermined compared to her male counterpart.
She felt that this was something she could relate to.

“We focus on the positives, and I have not been undermined in this situation.
“I was given an opportunity to be a female lead in a film. And that is a step forward.”
