Sadie Sink Will Miss The Show
Recalling her time on the series in an episode of The Today show, the “Glass Castle” actress revealed that it would be “awful” to see it end. Sink also noted that it would be scarier to film the finale than it had been for the past seasons.
The star who joined the main cast in the second season confirmed that she would be a huge part of the fifth and final season set to release next year. “With the way that my character ended in season four, I have no idea what is going to happen but I’ll be there.”
She also noted that the finale would be very sad, and she would miss the show a lot. “We know that it’s happening and that it’s the last season, so it’s going to be emotional, I’m sure,” she said per Insider. While she doesn’t know for sure how the finale will end, she’s not ready to say goodbye to the thriller show.
Sadie Sink Doesn’t Want To Say Goodbye
In response to how the cast would feel after filming the final scenes, the “Eli” actress noted that it was going to be sad and heartbreaking for them to say goodbye. “It’s going to be horrible,” she said. “These kids, this entire cast and crew, it’s family. People say that all the time, but I genuinely mean it.”
She also explained that it would be even more difficult because they used to hope to see each other again for another season. However, this would be the final one. “To think that we have to say goodbye to that security and knowing that we’ll be seeing each other for another season? It’s scary and sad.”
While she is sad that the show is coming to an end, Sink is proud of how far they’ve come and is “excited” to “move on to the next chapter.” She also can’t wait to give the final season her best shot since she is an essential part of it.
She Is An Important Part Of The Finale
Fans of the show know very little about the upcoming finale, but in the last episode of season 4, the villain Vecna almost successfully killed Max. However, Eleven (played by Millie Bobby Brown) managed to save her and by the end of the episode, she was in a coma.
While viewers believed that this was the original plan, the Duffer Brothers disclosed that they considered killing off the character entirely. However, they ended up keeping her in a coma as a key part of the final season.
In response to why she was in a coma, Matt Duffer said, “The fact that she’s in a coma, I can’t really get into the details, but it is important that she is.”
He also added that she would have a “major effect on” the fifth season. “So it’s not a, oh well, you know, a cheat. It’s incredibly relevant to five.”
What Else Has Sadie Sink Been Up To?
The actress, who made her debut in 2006 with her role in “The Queen,” has juggled her part in “Stranger Things” with several other ones over the past six years. In 2021, she wowed viewers with her role in singer Taylor Swift‘s short film “All Too Well.” She also starred in all three “Fear Street” films in the same year.
In November last year, she played the main character Tess in the drama “Dear Zoe,” which follows her struggle with the loss of her younger sister. Sink then appeared on-screen again the following month with “The Whale.” In the movie, the 20-year-old plays Ellie, the estranged daughter of an obese English teacher.
She is set to star in the upcoming movie “Berlin Nobody” alongside Eric Bana and Sylvia Hoeks. While there is no release date at the moment, the “Stranger Things” finale will hit screens sometime in 2024.
