She made great friends with Woody Harrelson and his daughter, Makani, while filming the drama picture The Glass Castle.

Sink joined the Netflix series Stranger Things in 2017 as Maxine “Max” Mayfield, a skateboarder from an abusive family.

Career as a model

Having Sadie Sink Kiss Caleb McLaughlin
Despite the fact that she expressed herself as “stressed out.”
Stranger Things: Season 2 comes with an accompanying after program called Beyond Stranger Things, which takes viewers behind the scenes of each episode with cast and staff members. While the after-show is designed to be educational, a scene in the second episode around minute 18 had viewers scratching their heads.
Matt Duffer and Ross Duffer, the show’s creators, are joined in the episode by newcomer Sadie Sink, who plays Max, as well as Caleb McLaughlin (Lucas) and Gaten Matarazzo (Lucas) (Dustin). The group is challenged to analyze a romantic scene from the previous episode, in which Max kisses Lucas during the Hawkins Middle School Snow Ball dance.
However, as Twitter user @ajlobster points out, the conversation becomes a little awkward when Sadie says she was anxious about a sequence that wasn’t initially in the script. Sadie was “freaked out” by the kissing scene, which is understandable given that she is only 15 and had to execute the sequence in front of a room full of cast and crew.
Ross admitted that he was joking about the kiss at first, but that Sadie’s reaction was “that powerful” and she was “so freaked” that he decided to videotape the scene. He then goes on to imply that the kiss happened because of Sadie’s “fault.”
“That’s why it’s my fault?” Sadie inquired, puzzled.
Ross responds, “That’s why I’m saying it’s your responsibility.”

Many people are now rushing to social media to ask why the filmmaker didn’t console Sadie, let the kiss unscripted, or collaborate with her to capture the scenario in a way that was comfortable and worry-free for her. Some people are also upset about the talk, which they say “creeped” them out and made them angry.
With recent reports of juvenile sexual assault in Hollywood and fellow Stranger Things cast member Finn Wolfhard’s decision to get go of his representation, a Twitter user correctly pointed out that the director’s answer is extremely concerning. Even if the after show was shot before the recent charges, the director’s behavior is inexcusable, and Sadie’s anxieties over a major sequence are nothing to laugh about.
