Enola’s age in the sequel

Of course, Enola is the youngest teenage sister of famous detective Sherlock. The first film showcased Enola’s coming of age, as she bonds with her mother and learns to navigate the world as a young girl.

She is 16 in the first film. Set in 1884, the film features its 16th anniversary, during the month of July. The sequel is set in 1885, which suggests Enola is a year older. However, the newspaper clippings shown throughout the film are dated between March and June. This suggests that Elona is still 16 years old.

Unlike her character, Millie Bobby Brown is 18 years old. Born in February 2004, Brown has been acting since a young age. Appearing in the Netflix Original series Stranger Things, Brown is becoming a young powerhouse in the acting world. She went on to land many major roles, from Godzilla to Enola Holmes.
