Enola Holmes is finally on Netflix and the cast, including Millie Bobby Brown, is a star-studded one.
Millie Bobby Brown is the leading role in Netflix's Enola Holmes, playing the younger sister of Sherlock Holmes alongside cast members including Helena Bonham Carter, Sam Claflin and Henry Cavill, who are just a few of the big stars in the film.
The story follows Millie’s character Enola who sets out to find her mother after she disappears on the morning of her 16th birthday.
Enola’s strict older brothers try to place their sister into a school for ‘proper’ young ladies, but she stumbles into a mystery bigger than expected, putting her amateur detective skills to use.
Here are all the details on the cast of Enola Holmes…
Millie takes the leading role in Enola Holmes, as the little sister of detective Sherlock Holmes.
Most viewers will instantly know Millie from her role of Eleven in Netflix’s Stranger Things, but she’s also starred in Godkilla: King of the Monsters.
Henry, who you may have seen in Man of Steel and Batman v Superman Dawn of Justice, stars as Sherlock Holmes, Enola’s brother.
Henry’s character in Enola Holmes is said to show a “more emotional” side to the typical Sherlock Holmes.
Sam’s character Mycroft is another of Enola’s older siblings, described as the more uptight of the brothers as he tries to send Enola to finishing school.
You may have seen Sam in The Hunger Games film series, Me Before You, and Love, Rosie.
Helena plays the mother to Enola, Sherlock and Mycroft. She is a suffragette who raised and home-schooled her daughter at their countryside mansion.
The actress has BAFTAs and Emmy Awards under her belt after legendary roles in Tim Burton films such as Alice in Wonderland, the Harry Potter film series, and Les Misérables.

Killing Eve star Fiona Shaw plays the strict head mistress at Enola’s school.
Fiona played Aunt Petunia in the Harry Potter films and most recently Carolyn Martens in Killing Eve.

In Enola Holmes he plays the henchman hired to kill Viscount Tewkesbury.

Played by BAFTA Breakthrough winner Susan Wokoma, you may have seen the actress in Chewing Gum and Channel 4’s Year of the Rabbit.
