Millie Bobby Brown has given an inside look into her experience collaborating with Henry Cavill, describing their bond as a "real adult relationship".

Brown, widely known for her role in the hit series Stranger Things, starred alongside Cavill in Enola Holmes 2, a movie that continues to unravel the mysteries and adventures of Sherlock Holmes's brilliant younger sister, Enola.

It's difficult to know who would be more starstruck, as both Brown and Cavill have carved incredible careers of their own and are each household names.

In a candid interview with Deadline, the 19-year-old touched on the distinctive dynamic she shares with Cavill, which stands apart from the camaraderie she enjoyed with her co-stars Noah Schnapp and Charlie Heaton on Stranger Things.

Check out the trailer for Enola Holmes 2 below:

"The dynamic is distinct because Noah and Charlie have been a part of my life since I was 10. They feel like my schoolmates," Brown said.

"However, with Henry, it's an authentic adult relationship—a truly solid friendship, a remarkably wholesome one. It's a connection with its own terms and conditions. I know Henry. He has his set of terms and conditions with me," she explained.

Brown continued: "Certain aspects of his personal life are off-limits. It's like, 'Millie, zip it. No prying.' And I'm like 'Message received.' Unlike the Stranger Things bond, there are certain boundaries with Henry, and I respect that," the actress added.

The actress previously opened up to Allure about how she approaches her work and what she does in order to transform into her characters.

"I found joy in assuming different identities because I've always grappled with self-identity and my sense of belonging. Even in my youth, I often felt like I was a puzzle piece that didn't quite fit into any given room. Loneliness was a bit of a struggle," Brown shared.

She continued: "I'd often feel alone in a bustling room, like an enigma, as if no one truly comprehended me. That's why I gravitated towards characters that people could understand and connect with, since it felt like no one could really relate to Millie."

Brown's talents extend beyond her acting prowess as she pursued an online studies course in human services at Purdue University. The actress described the course as a means to comprehend "the system and ways to support young individuals," a skill set that could seamlessly align with her role as a devoted Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF.

If you haven't seen Brown and Cavill side by side yet, Enola Holmes 2 is available on Netflix!
