Robert Brown is the father of a British actress and model, Millie Bobby Brown, who is best recognized for her work as Eleven with psychokinetic and telepathic abilities in Netflix’s hit horror drama series Stranger Things.
Robert previously worked as a real estate agent in the U.K.
Robert married his wife, Kelly Brown, a long time back and are still together. The British couple relocated to Spain and ran a restaurant to make ends meet.
They gave birth to Millie in Spain. When Millie was four, they went back to their native U.K. and settled in Bournemouth.
The family once again moved to Orlando, Florida, intending to start a tooth whitening business when Millie was eight.
He envisioned something different in Millie from his other three kids
Robert is the father of his four kids, whom he shares with his beloved wife, Kelly. Millie is the third born of his four kids, Paige, Ava, and Charlie Brown.
She was born with a loss of hearing in one ear, and after several years of surgeries, she eventually lost all her hearing in one ear.
But it did not stop her from performing and later becoming a star. From the very beginning, Robert envisioned something different in Millie from his other three kids, which was her acting bug.
According to Robert, Millie would watch musicals – Chicago, Moulin Rouge, Annie, and Bugsy Malone while his other children watched cartoons.
She would belt out a tune. He concluded by saying that his daughter was performing from day one.
As parents, they sacrificed everything possible to support their daughter
Millie has achieved immense success at a very young age, but the success was not her alone but her parents too, who sacrificed everything possible in the journey to support her.
While at Orlando, Robert enrolled Millie in a weekend stage so that she could learn, dance, act, and sing every Saturday.
The Hollywood talent scout commented on Millie’s talent where they said of her having an instinct that Robert and Kelly cannot teach and further said that she could mix it with the best kids in Hollywood.
Having heard such praises from them made them move to Los Angeles and did not think twice to sell everything they had.
They were on the verge of bankruptcy and suffered a financial crisis before Millie landed a big role.
Because they were tight with money, Robert barely could afford to get Millie to auditions and would put a condition to take her to auditions only if she memorized all her lines.
Going through such a tough situation was unbearable for their elder daughter Paige and the family had to move back to England to stay at their aunt’s house.
It was a devastating situation for everyone in the family, especially Millie, who thought her dream of becoming a star was over.
Though she had low confidence, she did not stop auditioning. Later, she auditioned for Stranger Things where she had to cry, and her acting was so real and raw at the time that she hit out the park.
Soon after, Robert and his family flew back to the United States.
She had to cut off her hair for her role, and Robert and Kelly were not convinced initially, but Millie finally succeeded in convincing them, telling
“Dude, it grows back. It’s Fine.”
She rose to prominence from Stranger Things and went on landing significant roles.
He was in the headline for demanding money from agents
In 2016, Robert came into highlight after demanding money from agents to sign then 12-year-old daughter.
After his daughter’s break-out role in Stranger Things, interests from agencies piled up to sign her.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, sources at five different agencies said that Robert, who goes by Bobby, made a conversation asking for a sizeable cash payment for signing Millie, out of which two sources revealed the amount fee to be $100,000.
