Sadie Sink had us all sobbing along with her when she played the young woman known only as “Her” in Taylor Swift’s All Too Well short film.

If the 19-year-old looked familiar wrapped in THAT red scarf, it’s probably because you’ve seen her before as Max in Stranger Things.

She’s grown up a lot since she first appeared on the hit Netflix show in 2017, but that wasn’t actually Sadie’s debut TV role.

In fact, this young star has been making waves in the entertainment industry for years now, and we have a feeling she has a bright future ahead of her.

Especially if the rumours about who she’s currently dating are true…

So, before you re-watch All Too Well or the next season of Stranger Things drops, let’s get to know leading lady Sadie Sink.

How old is Sadie Sink?

Born on April 16, 2002 in Brenham, Texas, Sadie is currently 19 and is an Aries.

Who is Sadie Sink’s boyfriend?

Now isn’t that just the question on everyone’s lips.

There are rumours that Sadie is dating Patrick Alwyn, and if that name sounds familiar it’s because he’s the brother of Joe Alwyn.

As in, Taylor Swift’s long-time boyfriend, Joe Alwyn. Yeah.

Sadie and Patrick were photographed out and about in New York City back in September of 2021, but the photos resurfaced when Sadie appeared in Taylor’s All Too Well short film.

Though she hasn’t commented on her connection with Patrick, fans are speculating that the pair may have met through Taylor.

Details are scarce at the moment, but trust us when we say we’ll be keeping our eyes on these two.

Did Sadie Sink get famous from Stranger Things?

Kind of? Sadie had already been acting for a few years when she was cast as Max Mayfield in the second season of Stranger Things back in 2017.

She was a bit of a breakout star in that and the third season, winning over fans when her character befriended Eleven, played by Millie Bobby Brown.

With the fourth season of Stranger Things set to drop in 2022, we’re keen to see Sadie reprise her role as the kids start to grow up and tackle the trials and tribulations of their teen years.

“There’s really not much I can say after everything that happened in season three, but you’ll see Max in a very different place,” she told Glamour in July.

When did Sadie Sink start acting?

Sadie got into acting around 2012, when she was just 10-years-old, and starred in some locals plays and musicals in Texas.

She scored a few bit roles in TV shows like Blue Bloods and American Odyssey before making the leap to Broadway in 2015.

That year she starred alongside none other than Helen Mirren in a production of The Audience, then added a few more TV and movie credits to her resume, including a role in Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.

Then, in 2017, she scored her breakout role in Stranger Things and the rest, as they say, was history.

Most recently, she starred in the Fear Street movies and the All Too Well short film directed by Taylor Swift herself.

What has Sadie Sink said about starring in Taylor Swift’s All Too Well short film?

Taylor cast Sadie alongside Dylan O’Brien in the short film, which many fans believe is a direct parallel of Taylor’s past relationship with Jake Gyllenhaal.

As for how Sadie found out she was going to be a part of the project, Taylor recently revealed she always planned to cast the 19-year-old in the role.

“They had the song before anyone else had the song and when they said yes, I was so elated because I didn’t have backups in mind,” Taylor told E! News Daily Pop.

As for Sadie, she shared a few frames from the film to her Instagram with this sweet caption: “Taylor, thank you for trusting me, guiding me, and inspiring me.

“It was a true honour bringing your vision to life alongside my friend Dylan. I am forever in awe of your talent and so endlessly grateful! Congratulations to the entire team🤍”

Does Sadie Sink have a career outside of acting?

Sadie also models and took to the runway for the first time back in 2018 at Paris Fashion Week, when she was just 15.

She has since modelled for the likes of Vogue, Chanel and even Givenchy Beauty, and we only expect that list to grow longer.
