Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown on loving Liverpool

English actress Millie Bobby Brown is a huge Liverpool fan.

The 12-year-old star of Netflix smash hit 'Stranger Things' has revealed that the influence of her father and brother persuaded her to become a Reds supporter.

Born in Spain to British parents, Millie told Liverpoolfc.com that her love for Liverpool stems from a family tradition.

"When I was younger, my dad got me a whole Liverpool kit," said Brown, who plays key character 'Eleven' in the popular sci-fi series.

"My brother is a massive fan and it's kind of like a legacy. I didn't really have a choice!

"Now I watch them and I love Liverpool. I watch the games. My brother is 19 and is the biggest fan, he supports obsessively!"

Millie admits she has never been to Anfield but would jump at the chance if it were ever to arise.

"I've never really had the chance to go. Tickets are always sold out or there's always something wrong," she added.

"That would be amazing. When I watch on TV, I want to be there – it seems so uplifting. The atmosphere is incredible.

"When I go to conventions and walk out on stage, it's like 'wow!' and I feel like that's constant when watching the game."

And for her favourite player, it was a clear and simple answer:

"Coutinho!"
