Stranger Things actor Millie Bobby Brown was stalked by a fan who managed to get to the set of Damsel, a court heard.
The 18-year-old was targeted by 26-year-old Damian Martin while filming the Netflix fantasy series in London earlier this month.
Highbury Corner Magistrates heard Damian had been charged with “acts related to stalking” on May 16.
After lying to security to get close to her, Mr. Martin then reappeared in the middle of a live podcast that Millie was on.
Millie’s team was alerted and subsequently reported the break-in to police.
Martin gave false details to security on both schools to gain access to Millie “for unknown reasons”.
“Martin has twice visited the filming locations where the famous actress Brown was filming for Netflix and a live podcast,” the court papers said.
“Martin provided false information to security personnel at each location in an attempt to gain access to the locations and contact Brown for unknown reasons.”
A temporary order now prevents him from contacting Millie or her family, visiting places where she may be, recording still or moving images of her, or “watching or waiting” for her. that.
He must also notify police of his ownership of any device with internet access, his password and details of any social media accounts he owned – these accounts appear to have been deleted.
Failure to comply in any way may result in imprisonment.
Martin, of no fixed address, is due to appear in court regarding the temporary order on July 7.
Teenager Millie sparked an outcry in 2019 after appearing to defend a clingy character in another Netflix title, You.
Discussing Joe Goldberg (played by Penn Badgley), the star – then 14 – said on Instagram: “He’s not scary, he loves her and it’s okay…”
However, she later deleted the post after a backlash.
