Stranger Things star David Harbour shows off his funny side by auditioning for the role of Eleven

Stranger Things sees Millie Bobby Brown embody the role of Eleven, but before she got the part David Harbour auditioned to play the young hero, and it's difficult to tell them apart...

Stranger Things introduced us to Millie Bobby Brown as Eleven, the mentally abused daughter of the merciless Dr. Brenner, turned heroine and fierce friend to Mike, Lucas, Dustin and Will. Season 1 shot Brown into the Hollywood stratosphere but thanks to a behind-the-scenes featurette posted by Funny Or Die, we now know that David Harbour who plays the Chief of Police, Jim Hopper, gave a very serious and legitimate audition to play the wonderful young girl. The audition is of course all in jest, but it sees a funny side to the actor whose character we only ever saw as being emotionally wounded and guarded. As he unashamedly tells the casting directors that he made his own replicas of Eleven's dress and wig, we then cut back to Harbour who introduces fans to his new Netflix series 'New Eleven'. Let it go, Hopper.

Despite Eleven's worrying disappearance at the end of Season 1, David Harbour was quick to reassure fans that she will almost definitely return by the end of Season 2. However, the title sequence to Habour's joke Netflix series 'New Eleven' could in fact be a hint towards what's to come in the upcoming season. A recent Stranger Things casting call gave us a few hints at what could be around the corner for the citizens of Hawkins, but also teased a new Eleven. Season 2 will undoubtedly see the children searching tirelessly for their missing friend, while also trying to destroy whatever is incubating inside of Will, and through it all we hope that Nancy will come to her senses and chose Jonathan over Steve. Thankfully for them, they'll have their faithful Hopper to help guide them along the way. Are you excited to see David Harbour return to Stranger Things?
