If you spend most of your waking hours things about what could potentially happen in Season 2 of Stranger Things, you'll know that Eleven is pretty much the best character in the series. Apart from Dustin. Dustin is also great.

With actress Millie Bobby Brown having to go through a pretty dramatic transformation to become the psychonkinetic badass on screen, one thing that she was a bit unsure about was shaving all her hair off for the role.

Well, after deciding she quite fancied looking like Charlize Theron in Mad Max: Fury Road, Millie went ahead with the chop, and filmed herself in the process. That footage is now very important, because it's practically the moment Elle was first BIRTHED.

The show's creators actually told Entertainment Weekly that the cut was a very intense process: "When the day of the haircut finally arrived, Millie's mom brought out a camcorder, while her dad ran away with tears in his eyes, unable to watch. It was a pretty dramatic scene. But also very quick. 

Adding that Eleven immediately got into the role following the new 'do, they added: "Within 10 minutes we had shaved it all off and slapped a fake '11' tattoo on Millie's wrist. Millie looked at herself in the mirror, gave her best [Mad Max: Fury Road heroine] Furiosa scream — and Eleven was born."

Yep, further reasons why we want to be Eleven when we grow up.
