Sadie Sink is already feeling the sadness that will be the end of Stranger Things. The star, who plays Max Mayfield in the Netflix series, says she’s not ready to say goodbye to the show.
Sink, 20, admits that she can’t think about what will happen when production wraps on the fifth and final season of the series.
“Tears will be shed.” Sink states.
The biggest challenge for Sink will be saying goodbye to her co-stars, who she feels she would be lost without.
“We really depend on each other when things get really nuts. You need to talk to someone that knows exactly what you’re going through and we have each other. So that’s really special.” Sink says to Access Hollywood in a recent interview.
“Especially having Millie (Bobby Brown), she was the only girl at first so it was nice that we have that connection.” she adds.
Sadie Sink Doesn’t Know What’s In-Store for Stranger Things Season 5
Sink insists that she has no idea what Matt and Ross Duffer, Stranger Things creators and showrunners, have in-store for the final season.
“I have no idea what’s planned, especially for my character. But I think we are all looking forward to wrapping it up and giving the fans a great finale.” Sink also adds.
While Stranger Things Season 5 filming is right around the corner for Sink, she has a number of other projects she’s currently working on as well. She can be seen next in Dear Zoe, where she stars opposite Grey’s Anatomy star Jessica Capshaw.
Sink plays a grief-stricken teen battling with her guilt following the death of her younger half-sister in a tragic accident, and she “really connected” with her character.
“I mean I was 16, 17 when I first filmed this. So I think I was right in that age range where I really connected with the character… just with teenage emotions and everything.” Sink says.
Sink also stars in A24’s The Whale opposite Brendan Fraser, which releases on December 9, 2022, in the United States. Taking time off to shoot the project, which received a standing ovation at the Venice Film Festival, has made Sink more confident in her acting.
“It was really important that I had that experience, because I pushed myself as an actor further than I ever had before,” Sink reveals. “When I returned to ‘Stranger Things,’ it was like I’d come back from boot camp or something.”
“There was a shift; something clicked. It gave me a level of confidence that has stuck with me since.” she adds.
