Before she was cast as Eleven on 'Stranger Things', Brown said she became "very disheartened" by the acting industry, which she said is "just full of rejection 24/7." "I feel like you do get a lot of noes before you get a yes," she explained of the casting process, adding that she was auditioning for "anything really" at the time.

The star-- who currently stars in the Netflix film 'Enola Holmes' -- said she auditioned for 'Game of Thrones', which was a role she "really wanted." She told Fallon, "I got a no for that and then that's when I was like, 'Oh, this is really difficult.'" People Magazine reported, after nearly quitting her career as an actor, Brown said she had her "last kind of go" at a "Netflix show called 'Montauk'," which later became 'Stranger Things'.

"I auditioned and two months later they got back to us and said, 'Hey we'd love to Skype with you' and I Skyped with them, and the rest is history," she said with a smile.

"'Montauk' was definitely the one that kind of gave me that hope of doing it all again," Brown added.

Last September, 'Stranger Things' was renewed for a fourth season.
