Jasmine Curtis Smith, her boyfriend Jeff Ortega and Louise delos Reyes were among those who were lucky enough to meet Stranger Things actress Millie Bobby Brown.

Stranger Things actress Millie Bobby Brown attracted hundreds of her Filipino fans at the 2016 AsiaPOP Comic Convention.

Even local celebrities were giddy upon meeting the 12-year-old actress at the convention that took place from August 26 to 28 at the SMX Convention Center.

Millie--along with Game of Thrones actor Joe Dempsie, The Originals star Claire Holt, and Warm Bodies actor Nicholas Hoult--headlined the second edition of Asia's biggest comic book convention.

Some celebrities who had a meet-and-greet session with Millie were real-life couples Jasmine Curtis-Smith and boyfriend Jeff Ortega as well as Carla Abellana and Tom Rodriguez.

The TV5 actress attended the convention with her boyfriend last Saturday, August 27.

Jasmine shared their photo on Instagram and expressed her gratitude for the Hollywood actress.

She wrote, "She's such a lovely lady not one person came out of the photo opp without a smile, including myself! Hi @milliebobby_brown thanks for still being so cheery and welcoming to your fans despite the long day of meet and greets and photo opps! #AsiaPopComicon2016 #El #Eleven and this is my 3000th IG POST!!

Meanwhile, GMA-7 actress Louise delos Reyes was also able to met the young star at the convention on Sunday, August 28. Louise channeled her inner 'Eleven,' Millie's character on Stranger Things, during her photo with the actress.

The Kapuso star shared her experience on Instagram and wrote: "I promise this is my best try to copy Eleven's death stare I still can't believe that I met and actually talked to @milliebobby_brown during the @asiapopcomicon last weekend at the SMX Convention Center. She was very accommodating, smart, witty and energetic girl in person, very far from her character Eleven. Thank you so much @fullcirclecommspr and @netflixph for this another unforgettable experience #AsiaPopComiCon #StrangerThings #NetflixPH"

Kapuso couple Carla Abellana and Tom Rodriguez are also fans of Stranger Things and geeked out upon meeting Millie at the AsiaPOP Comic Con last Sunday. Carla posted several photos of their encounter with Millie on Instagram.

The Because of You star wrote: "I couldn't help but tell her my theory about the monster in Stranger Things. She just gasped and remained tight-lipped. Perhaps my theory is correct? @milliebobby_brown is adorable! Thanks again to @fullcirclecommspr for helping us. #asiapopcomicon #apccph2016 @akosimangtomas."

In the end, Carla expressed her appreciation for the actress for being very accommodating. She wrote: "It was such a pleasure meeting you, Millie! We are overjoyed.
