The 19-year-old British actress appeared to be sharing a sweet moment as she chatted intimately on a rooftop with Wolfhard, 21, who plays her character’s love interest, while performing in front of the cameras.
At one point, Brown can be seen peering over the edge of the building, wearing a pair of blue zip-up leggings over a pair of red shorts.
Wolfhard seemed to be listening intently to what Brown was saying, then returned to the house.

Millie has expressed her desire for the show to end over the years, telling Seventeen in March: “I’m definitely ready for it to end.” I feel like there are a lot of stories being told now and we all know it, it’s been in our lives for a long time.
“But I’m ready to say goodbye to this chapter of my life and start a new one. I’m able to create my own stories that are important to me and focus on the bigger picture. But I’m really grateful (for this show) .

Garten, who plays Dustin Henderson, told Jimmy Fallon in a March interview that he lives in “deep fear” of the ending of “Stranger Things.”
He said: “There’s an exciting feeling there because you always want to wrap it up and see how these characters are going to develop in the end and how they’re going to complete their journey.
‘But there was also a deep fear. Not only is this amazing, but it’s also pretty good job security for a period of time. Back to freelancing.
Finn, who plays Mike Wheeler, admitted to Uproxx in January that he “didn’t read” the ending, although he admitted “it would be ridiculous” if it continued beyond season five.

“I just wanted to help get it done, but not in the way I wanted it done. Like I wanted to know what was going to happen. I do feel bad about it, but I also know this is what needs to happen in everyone’s life Next chapter.
