Millie Bobby Brown reveals the fun ways she teased Henry Cavill, who plays Sherlock Holmes, on the set of Netflix’s upcoming sequel, Enola Homes 2.
If the release of Enola Holmes 2 closer, star Millie Bobby Brown reveals how she constantly teased co-star Henry Cavill on set. Released on Netflix in 2020, the first Enola Holmes struck a chord with audiences and critics alike, telling the story of Sherlock Holmes’ (Cavill) sister, Enola (Brown). The film is based on the youth novels of author Nancy Springer, which follows 14-year-old Enola as she solves various mysteries. With the success of the first Enola Holmesthe sequel, which is again directed by Harry Bradbeer, is slated to release later this week, with trailers already teasing some exciting differences from the original film.
While the first film focused on Brown’s Enola as she tried to unravel the mystery of her missing mother, Eudoria (Helena Bonham Carter), Enola Holmes 2 will feature more of Cavill’s Sherlock. Trailers for the film have already teased that the two siblings’ business will intersect and they’ll be forced to work together. The official plot synopsis for the film also reveals that this time, Enola will be working as a hired detective, just like her brother, trying to unravel the mystery of a missing girl in the heart of London. Early reviews for Enola Holmes 2 were mostly positive, with many critics praising the strong chemistry between Brown and Cavill.
In a recent interview with ET Canada, Millie Bobby Brown reveals working on set with Henry Cavill for Enola Holmes 2 was accompanied by many plagues. The star explains that she has a more outgoing personality than her counterpart, which allowed her to get under his skin in a few playful ways. Watch Brown’s full commentary about her on-set dynamics with Cavill below:
“He’s introverted and I’m not, so that in itself. I just tease him about my loudness and I just make him really uncomfortable, and that’s what I’m good at. I’m very loud and I like to sing and I like to talk to him about reality dating shows and he’s just not interested and that’s me teasing him. That’s like phase one for me, we’re not even at phase 10 yet. It’s a process.”
How Brown and Cavill’s Relationship Helps Enola and Sherlock’s Dynamics
While the first film featured Cavill’s Sherlock relatively sparsely, the brother-sister dynamic between the two characters was a big hit with fans. Trailers for Enola Holmes 2 have already teased that Enola and Sherlock will be sharing the screen much more often this time around, with Brown’s playful teasing appearing to play into the relationship between the two characters. Sherlock still has an element of fun to him, but is the more experienced and more serious detective, which ultimately contrasts nicely with Enola’s more playful and naive view of the world.
It remains to be seen how Enola Holmes 2 will make it to the general public after its release on Netflix, but Brown’s comments about her off-screen dynamics with Cavill bodes well for the future of the two characters. If the sequel is as well-received as the original film, it’s possible that Brown and Cavill could team up one more time for Enola Holmes 3, which could explore the relationship between the two characters even more fully. While a third film is far from guaranteed, Brown’s experience on the set of Enola Holmes 2 certainly suggests that she would have additional opportunities to tease her opponent.
