Millie Bobby Brown Puts This Food Item in Her Nose to Make it Bleed for ‘Stranger Things’

On an episode of The Late Late Show with James Corden that aired on Tuesday, June 18, the 15-year-old, who was on the show with Yesterday star Lily James, revealed her character’s nose bleeds (which Brown controls) are made possible with a little help from some corn syrup.

“It’s just a pot of blood and it’s got a squeezey bottle,” she told a curious James Corden. “Then you just lift up your head, you squeeze it in and then whenever you feel it, I put my head down and I say, ‘OK guys, everybody ready … roll camera, action!’ and then wait,” Brown explained of how she utilizes the food item.

If the blood flows once Brown has called action she’s done her job right, but if it doesn’t the teen said: “I’ve screwed up my timing.”

“Sometimes I taste it,” she added. “It’s edible, it’s like, corn syrup.”

According to the star, the “quite sweet” blood-esque concoction tends to drip down her throat while she’s holding her head back and preparing to shoot a scene, making for a tasty experience.

Another skill the Godzilla: King of the Monsters actress is learning to master? Driving. The child actress revealed she recently got her learner’s permit, and even though Corden couldn’t believe she’s allowed behind the wheel of a car at such a young age, Brown maintained she’s “an amazing driver.”

“I’m really good” she declared. “I abide by all laws.”

Still, Brown admitted that her dad, who is teaching her to drive, is “really intense” during their lessons. “He just starts screaming ‘break!’” she said with a laugh.
