Stranger Things: Spoilers are on the way.
In the latest season of the popular Netflix show, the cast of Stranger Things continued to knock it out of the park, with each actor nailing their roles as their respective characters.
Sadie Sink is one of the many actors who played Max in the show's fourth season. However, Sink came close to missing out.
Sink, who was 14 at the time, was initially concerned that she was too old for the role in a new interview with Fashion Magazine.
Sink continued, "I just asked and pleaded with them to give me more material so I could show them something new." Max entered season two as a new girl to Hawkins with no friends and an abusive older brother named Billy (Dacre Montgomery).
Sink was eventually listened to by the producers, who invited her to take a chemistry test with her now-co-stars Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin) and Caleb McLaughlin (Lucas). She received the part the following day.
As Max was so vital to the show's plot, Sink was one of the stand-out performers of season four.
Vecna's turning upside down results in the deaths of several pupils, and Max is targeted next by the series villain. This led to one of the series' highlights, a nerve-shredding scene in which Max is trapped in the upside down by Vecna while her friends try to save her with the help of Kate Bush's iconic song Running Up That Hill (A Deal With God).
When Max is possessed and nearly killed by the villain, the gang's intention to use him as a bait for Vecna backfired. She survives just about with broken limbs and blinded eyes. She finishes the season comatose.
Max will not be able to recover completely, but you can be certain she will return in the fifth and final season of Stranger Things.
Seasons 1-4 of Stranger Things are now available on Netflix across the world.
