The American actress Sadie Sink is prominent for playing Maxine Mayfield in Netflix science-fiction based series Stranger Things.  

Besides, she is also known for her role as Suzanne Ballard on thriller television series American Odyssey. Here we will learn seven interesting facts of Sadie Sink. Let's begin.

7. Accomplished Success in an Early Age

Sink, born on April 16, 2002, is currently just 17 years old. She has been active in the entertainment industry since the age of eleven.

 Sadie, who stands 5 feet 3 inches tall, has devoted her formative years to her acting career. After working on numerous projects, she is currently enjoying her flourishing career with the hit of Stranger Things.

While it isn't new for the young artists to feel overwhelmed in managing their profession and school works, she has successfully done so by taking online courses and is planning to postpone her college for the future after graduation. 

6. Wanted to Recreate High School Musical

Like all the 2000s teenager, Disney's musical television series High School Musical starring Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens had become a thing of an obsession for the Strangers Things alum Sadie Sink. 

She was so hooked up with the show that she wished to recreate the show with her brother, Mitchell Sink. At this time, Sadie was seven years old.

Because of her desire to recreate the scene, Sink's mother decided to send her to a community theatre so that she could sharpen her acting skills. Fortunately, for Sadie, it helped her land a role in a theatrical performance called Annie

5. Her Brother Also Participates in Broadway

Sadie Sink has four siblings; three older brothers: Spencer Sink, Caleb Sink, Mitchell Sink, and a younger sister, Jacey Sink

And it turns out she isn't the only one who is involved in acting. Her brother, Mitchell, had also signed up for the drama class. He played as Michael Hobbs in the remake of Elf broadway revival back in 2012. 

The next year, Sink appeared in yet another Broadway show called Matilda based on Roald Dahl's children novel of the same name. He played as Bruce Bogtrotter in the show. 

Moreover, Sadie's sister, Jacey, has appeared in the Stranger Things. What's interesting is that Jacey played the younger version of Sadie's character Maxine Mayfield in the flashback scene of season two.

4. Sadie Sink Net Worth 

The 17-years old actress has worked in movies like Chuck, The Glass Castle, Dominion,  and Eli. In the film Eli, Sadie appeared as Haley for which she received $80,000 per week. 

Moreover, Sink has appeared in television series like The Americans, Blue Birds, American Odyssey, and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. Sadie's first appeared in the second season of Stranger Things where she received $23,625 per episode. Her salary for season three was $150,000 per episode. 

All of this has helped the 17-years actress to amass the net worth of $1 million.

3. Can Go Months Without Instagram

Yup, hard to believe since all teenagers are stereotyped to be glued on social medias 24-hour a day. But, Sink isn't our everyday teenager that fits in the generalization. 

The Stranger Things alum, whose Instagram handle is sadiesink_ currently has 10.5 million followers. She joined Twitter on September 2014 with the handle @SadieSink and has 609.9K followers.

Despite that, she talked about social media being a bit of new experience for her and, at times forgetting to keep track of it. Sink mostly uses her mother's phone to post the pictures since she finds it troublesome to continue installing Instagram because of her habit of uninstalling the app in the first place. 

2. Has Modeled at Paris Fashion Week

Besides acting, the Texas native has also taken up modeling. She made her runway debut in the 2018 Paris Fashion Week at the age of 15 despite a general rule of the fashion industry, not casting models under the age of 16. Perhaps her successful acting career played a vital role here!

From this, she also received an opportunity to stare in the campaigns for Miu Miu and Kate Spade. Moreover, Sink also appeared on the cover of L’Officiel Paris magazine in 2019, wearing a Chanel jacket and earrings. 

1. Shares Good Bond with Millie Bobby Brown

The 17-years old actress became nominated for SAG and MTV awards for her performance in the science fiction Stranger Things. 

From the series, Sink developed a friendship with her co-star Millie Bobby Brown. Their actual friendship actually led the creator of the show to change the dynamic of Sadie's character, making her friend with Millie's character on-screen.

While on a respite from the shoot, both are seen goofing around for a fun-filled picture or recreating a scene from Disney's Frozen. It's refreshing to see both engaging in such goofy acts. After all, given their hectic schedule, they deserve all the fun.

Besides, she is also happy to work with incredible cast members of the show like Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Finn Wolfhard, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Natalia Dyer, Charlie Heaton, Cara Buono, Noah Schnapp, Joe Keery, Maya Hawke, and many more.
