‘Stranger Things’ star Millie Bobby Brown reveals her grandmother died in emotional tribute: ‘My guardian angel’


Millie Bobby Brown is mourning the loss of her grandmother.

The “Stranger Things” star revealed on Instagram that her grandmother Ruth passed away after struggling with Alzheimer’s disease.

“There’s no words that make sense right now. There’s no feeling to pin point. Loss is something so complex and I go thru spells where I cant stop crying and then I laugh about all the memories and then sit quiet and try to comprehend what happened,” she captioned the post.

“Alzheimer’s is evil. Its cruel,” she continued, sharing a black-and-white video of herself kissing her grandmother. “Taking away someones ability to remember memories and then how to function like a human being. Its so hard to sit there and watch.”

In the heartbreaking post, the 16-year-old mentioned that she would remember the laughs and memories that her grandmother gave her throughout her life.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the actress shared that she could not say goodbye to her grandmother in person. She last saw her loved one on FaceTime.

“She is truly my guardian angel. I love you nanny. Theres no forgetting a soul like this one,” Brown shared.

In the tribute, the star shared some of her favorite memories with her grandmother, including her stays at “nanny truths house.”

While mourning the loss of her family member, Brown said that she cherishes doing cross-word puzzles with her and listening to her childhood stories and what it was like living through World War II.

Many of the actress’ celebrity friends offered their condolences in the comments of the post, including "Stranger Things" co-star Noah Schnapp, "Enola Holmes" actor Burn Gorman, and "Breaking Bad" star Aaron Paul.
