“I had no idea how to do it and I really didn’t like it”: Hollywood’s Heartthrob Sadie Sink Had to Lie to Get the Role of Max in Stranger Things

Sadie Sink Had to Lie to Get the Role of Max in Stranger Things

Sadie Sink played the newly joined character of Max Mayfield when Stranger Things season 2 aired. Although the actress has been adored and praised with love after her role, there was a time when people did not know her.

The Dear Zoe actress revealed that she lied to get the role of Max Mayfield in Stranger Things but things turned out fine in the end.

Sadie Sink Lied About Knowing How to Rollerblade

The character of Max Mayfield is introduced as a rollerblading teenager with a loss of emotional range. After a multitude of stories, Sadie Sink’s character begins to tear down its walls and show a more emotional side to the audience.

Rollerblading was a big part of the character of Max Mayfield and therefore, it makes sense that the actress portraying her should know how to. While making her appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Sadie Sink stated how she lied to the Duffer brothers (Matt and Ross Duffer) about her rollerblading experience and claimed that she had a bit of experience (which was untrue).

“I joined the show in season two and I was a fan of season one before,” the actress said. “All of my friends were watching it and everything. I was in the audition process for Max and I think I had done four callbacks, did the screen test and then I found out that I got the role.They sent a skateboard to my house the next day and I had to learn how to do that, I said I had rollerblading experience, which is just a lie.”

The Fear Street actress continued,

“And the two don’t go hand-in-hand, so I don’t know why I thought that would mean anything. [I] had no idea how to do it and I really didn’t like it, because the first day I took a pretty hard fall and it just set a bad tone for the entire journey”.

It all turned out to be fine in the end as Sadie Sink essentially became the Hollywood heartthrob for portraying the role of Max Mayfield. The actress went on to star in other projects following her fame and accepted more bolder and challenging roles. Her upcoming movie says it all with her and Brendan Fraser sharing the screen together.

With movies like Fear Street, Dear Zoe, and, The Glass Castle to her name, Sadie Sink ups her game by starring alongside Brendan Fraser in their upcoming movie called The Whale. The movie marks the return of Brendan Fraser to the big screens following years of absence and Sadie Sink has no easy role to portray.

Acting out as an estranged daughter, Sadie Sink portrays the relationship of her character with her disassociated father who is an obese and reclusive English teacher with one last chance at redemption, to fix things with his daughter. The Whale is expected to win an Oscar for its storyline while Brendan Fraser may get nominated for his acting skills.

The Whale will release on 9th December 2022 in theaters in the US. Stranger Things is available to stream on Netflix.
