This is what happens when two amazing fandoms collide! Millie Bobby Brown of ‘Stranger Things’, and Matthew Lewis of ‘Harry Potter’ teamed up for the cutest Instagram ever, and fans went wild about the pairing — and Matthew’s XI tattoo!
Millie Bobby Brown, 12, and Matthew Lewis, 27, met at Dallas Comic Con on October 16, and subsequently blew everyone’s minds. Millie, who plays tiny badass telekinetic Eleven on Netflix’s Stranger Things, and Matthew, Harry Potter‘s Neville Longbottom, posed for an adorable photo together that Matt posted to his Instagram.
Millie looks just as thrilled to meet Matthew as we feel looking at the photo! “A lot of people ask what my tattoo means. Now you know. @milliebobby_brown #XI #Eleven,” Matthew captioned the photo, in which Millie, her jaw dropped, points at the Roman numeral for eleven tattooed on his right arm. Matthew’s only joking about the meaning of his tattoo, as he’s had it far longer that Stranger Things has existed, but it’s a pretty cute thing for him to say, nonetheless. Can you imagine how happy Millie must have been to meet someone from Harry Potter?? We would die!
All the Stranger Things and Harry Potter fangirls and fanboys were freaking out in the comments of the Instagram just as hard as we were. “All of OUR interests colliding,” one person commented, while another said, “YES IM LIVING FOR THIS,” and “WORLDS COLLIDE 😍” So funny! One person put into words what we basically said when we saw the photo for the first time: “OOOMMMMGGGGCGHIRUFG” Don’t judge.
One person came up with the inevitable celebrity friend nickname, that’s absolutely perfect for these new BFFs: “Nevilleven ❤️” How amazing is that? Now all we can think about is Matthew joining the talented cast of Stranger Things season 2. Will he be the latest brave soul to venture into the Upside Down to defeat the Demogorgon? Eleven’s long-lost big brother? Fingers crossed!
