Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown is reportedly being paid a whopping 10 million dollars for the Enola Holmes sequel - which will apparently set a record.

The 18-year-old actor - who is best known for playing Eleven in the Netflix series - starred in the first Enola Holmes film in 2020 and it was a big hit with viewers.

She is now reprising the role in a follow-up film, and Variety says that Netflix will pay her 10 million dollars (around £8.4 million) for her performance.

Other young actors to have pocketed hefty salaries include Dakota Fanning, who is thought to have been making as much as four million dollars (£3.3 million) a film before she was in her teens.

And Will Smith's son Jaden is rumoured to have been paid a seven-figure number for his remake of 80s classic The Karate Kid, which was released in 2010 when the actor was 12.

Enola Holmes starred Brown as the youngest sibling in the famous Holmes family.

The sequel was announced last year, and Brown said she was excited about playing the character again.

“I can’t wait to collaborate again with my Enola Holmes family!” she said in a statement at the time.

"Enola holds a special place in my heart – she’s strong, fearless, intelligent and brave.

"I look forward to fans seeing how her journey continues!”
