Forces of the nonphysical realm helped Millie Bobby Brown realize she was a feminist.

The Stranger Things star, 19, credited her feminist awakening to a visit to a psychic in a new Glamour profile published Monday. The psychic, according to the profile, informed Brown that she was, in fact, a feminist, so she went home and Googled, "How do I know if I'm a feminist?"

After reading articles and books on the matter, she "really grasped the idea of feminism and what it means to me," Brown said. "Ultimately it's about opportunity."

Through her company PCMA Productions, which produced Brown's Enola Holmes and Enola Holmes 2, the actress aims to amplify girls and women's stories. Of the slate of movies in pre-production under the banner is Damsel, set to star Brown as a dragon-fighting princess alongside Robin Wright and Angela Bassett. "The theme is feminism," Brown said.

Other upcoming titles include dramas The Girls I've Been and A Time Lost, and Brown said she was excited to tackle new projects with Stranger Things' impending end. "When you're ready, you're like, 'All right, let's do this. Let's tackle this last senior year. Let's get out of here,'" Brown said. "Stranger Things takes up a lot of time to film and it's preventing me from creating stories that I'm passionate about. So I'm ready to say, 'Thank you, and goodbye.'"

Brown rose to prominence for her role as Eleven/Jane, a young girl born with special psychokinetic abilities, in Netflix's sci-fi juggernaut Stranger Things, which is set to end with a fifth and final season. Season 4 saw Vecna (Jamie Campbell Bower) successfully opening the gates between the Upside Down and Hawkins, spelling doom for the small town, and Max (Sadie Sink) falling into a coma after narrowly avoiding the grips of the big bad.

Netflix has yet to announce a premiere date for the final season, which will once again be split into two parts. Perhaps Brown's psychic might have a good idea of when it'll return.
