Exclusive: Sadie Sink Herself Takes Us Through The Journey of Max Mayfield on Stranger Things –




Versatile Sadie Sink Gives Tough Competition to ‘Stranger Things’ Co-star Millie Bobby Brown in Hair Styling

#Sadie #Sink #Takes #Journey #Max #Mayfield #Stranger

We all have our stories to tell. Along the journey, we make bonds unbreakable and subplots that are just amazeballs. But in the end, it’s just us with a pen and an empty paper to write our own plot. Well, that’s not limited to real life only. Fictional characters have anecdotes more enticing than anyone else. And Stranger Things folks have it done just right. Along with the entire plot, each one of them has a unique story to tell. One such is that of Max Mayfield. And how beautiful it would feel to listen to it from non-other than Sadie Sink, the actress herself.

Max Mayfield is a strong character who won our hearts just as she entered the Hawkins high school back in season 2. The little girl who didn’t fear showing her middle finger to Billy, the annoying brother. And a teenager who risked her life to save the township of Hawkins. Max Mayfield is everything but boring. And undoubtedly, all the credits go to Sadie Sink, the actress who embodied the character so well that we couldn’t imagine anyone else playing the role.

Recently, after the premiere of volume 2 of Stranger Things season 4, Sadie took it to herself to tell us about the journey of this amazing character throughout the series.

Sadie Sink thinks her character is a stunning blend of sarcasm and smartness

Well, there’s no denial of Sadie Sink’s remark about Max Mayfield. But that’s not all. In the video, the actress takes us on the beautiful journey of Maxine in the series. From a girl who kept pretty much everything to herself in the second season to the one who became her friend’s favorite and almost sacrificed herself to save the world. Max is truly a smart and honest girl the heroes of Hawkins needed in Netflix’s Stranger Things.

She says, “her journey with grieving Billy and the guilt she feels along with it. I feel like you are constantly peeling back layer after layer.” She thinks that the side of Max where she keeps pretty much everything to herself and then gradually opens up about it is interesting. She also feels that it has been really cool for Max as the audience gets to see different sides of her each season. One thing that remained the same about Max, according to her, is “she stays fiercely loyal, no matter what happens in Hawkins.”

Do you agree with Sadie Sink? What are your thoughts about her character, Max Mayfield? Let us know in the comment section below.

The ghost has come to live! With the changing dynamics of season 3 of Umbrella Academy, things have gone a little wilder. As we meet several new characters including Ben Hargreeves, the beloved ghost from the previous season. Creators have added some spice to his character by bringing him back to life as a Sparrow member in the alternative world. Fans’ jaws dropped to see the wicked version of this sweet boy and a sudden change in his behavior. Maybe life doesn’t suit him or he is haunted by his afterlife. Well, it’s up to Ben what emotions he is feeling in the fresh life of a fresh season. However, we still have the actor Justin H Min to find answers to all our questions. Let’s dig into what experience Justin has shared with the fan during the Netflix Geeked Week event.

Justin H Min got a vocal coach to bring Sparrow Ben in season 3

Justin H Min is an embodiment of the snobbish and dark character in Umbrella Academy season 3. For which he had to transform himself into an opposite personality. A recent video posted by Geeked Week on Twitter read:

“did you know Justin H. Min even changed his vocal register to transform into Sparrow Ben in THE UMBRELLA ACADEMY Season 3?”

The post stated that to build the character of new despiteful Ben he had to take some intense training. Justin revealed before shooting the whole Sparrow sequence he prepared things with trainers.

“So physically I felt different already, and then vocally, I got a vocal coach to sort of work on my register, my cadence,” remarked Justin.

Because in his previous role his dialogues were faded and incomplete as he was a spirit. However, he was no more a shady ghost and he had to make the audience feel his presence. He needed to have that authority and expressiveness in his voice. Which he was aware of and worked on to outshine as a reborn character.
