The cast of Stranger Things got together for a promotional event to talk about the release of the upcoming fourth season of the series and also talk about their experiences leading up to this point.
The event featured cast members such as Noah Schnapp, Charlie Heaton, Eduardo Franco, Sadie sink, Priah Ferguson and Gaten Matarazzo.
When asked about the impact that the COVID-19 pandemic had on the series and their interpersonal relationships, Sadie Sink stated: “Covid was a weird time where we had to shut down because we didn’t know when we’re all going to be able to go back to work. We always do keep in touch and communicate individually with one another and with Covid we were just so excited to come back to work when everything just shut down indefinitely but we are grateful when we did get the opportunity to safely return to work.”
Sink plays Max Mayfield, who first made an appearance in the series in season 2 along with her abusive step-brother, Billy Hargrove played by Dacre Montgomery. Max is a tomboy and skateboarder who catches the attention of both Lucas and Dustin, eventually choosing Lucas.
In the trailer for the upcoming season 4 part 1, she is shown paying her respects to her deceased brother who lost his life in the ‘battle of Starcourt’ and later on appears to be levitating in the air, a possible indication of new powers that she may have acquired.
Sink has also played Ziggy Berman in the Netflix horror film trilogy ‘Fear Street’ while her Broadway credits include roles in the productions of ‘Annie’ and ‘The Audience’.
Season 4 of Stranger Things is set to be released in two volumes with the first one releasing on 27 May and the second coming out on 1 July on Netflix.
