Her watch might have ended too soon, thanks to “Game of Thrones.”

“Stranger Things” and “Enola Holmes” star Millie Bobby Brown, 16, is one of the world’s most successful young actresses — but that almost didn’t happen after “Game of Thrones” rejected her.

“This industry is just full of rejection,” she said during her recent appearance on “The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon.” “You get ‘no’s, a lot of ‘no’s, before you get a ‘yes.’ ”

Brown was just getting her start in acting when she tried out for the HBO fantasy series. The character she auditioned for was the feisty Lyanna Mormont, who was ultimately played by Bella Ramsey.

“I got a no for that,” she said. “That’s kind of when I was like, ‘Oh, this is really difficult,’ and I guess I really wanted that role.”

Lyanna, who became a breakout character in the show, appeared from Seasons 6 to 8, as an ally to Jon Snow and Sansa Stark. She makes her entrance when Jon and Sansa are rallying the North to fight the evil Ramsay Bolton and take Winterfell back from him. She quickly became a fan-favorite character, for her tendency to sass grown men, give Ramsay her killer death-glare and generally demonstrate an utter sense of fearlessness and ferocity against anyone and everyone.

This carried through to her death, when she had a David and Goliath-esque showdown with a giant during Season 8’s big battle episode, “The Long Night.” Unfortunately she didn’t survive it, but she took the giant down with her.

After getting rejected from this role, Brown was ready to call it quits when she did one more audition for a Netflix project called “Montauk,” which ultimately ended up being “Stranger Things.” That show premiered in 2016, the same year that Lyanna Mormont made her debut in “GOT” Season 6.

The actress is best known for her Emmy nominated role as Eleven in “Stranger Things,” and most recently for starring opposite Henry Cavill in the latest rendition of the Sherlock Holmes story, “Enola Holmes” (currently on Netflix). “Stranger Things” Season 4 has not yet announced its premiere date.
