AceShowbiz - Millie Bobby Brown was reduced to tears by the sight of Vecna on "Stranger Things". Jamie Campbell Bower stars as the scary antagonist on the hit Netflix series, and he's revealed that the Eleven depicter was initially terrified of his character.
The 33-year-old actor, who spent eight hours in make-up every day, shared to Variety, "They brought her up into a position where she's bound. I walked up to her [as Vecna] and she burst into tears." He added, "She wouldn't look at me and she was visibly just disgusted by the whole thing."
However, Millie quickly realized that it was Jamie beneath the make-up and she eventually got used to his appearance. He said, "After she cried and I made it obvious that she knew it was me, one of the things she said was that, 'I knew it was you when I could smell cigarettes,' because I'm a smoker."
Meanwhile, Jamie recently admitted he meditated in preparation for his role on "Stranger Things". The actor explained, "I did a few things. I had a mood board that I started making quite early on in the process. So I always had that with me on set and where I was living, and it grew over time."
"Meditation was also a big thing. Clearing out my own space, allowing this fury and resentment to come through, was very interesting for me," the English heartthrob, who also appears in "Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald", further elaborated. "I spent quite a bit of time kind of on my own, walking around saying the same thing over and over again, staring into the eyes of whoever was next on the mood board."
