Riding on the wave of the renaissance of the horror movie genre over the past five years, Netflix tapped a much-loved teen star to appear front and centre in its latest scare-trilogy, Fear Street.
The actress in question? 19-year-old Sadie Sink. Adored for her portrayal of feisty Max Mayfield in cult sci-fi drama Stranger Things, Sink has spent the last four years - after joining for the second season - adjusting to fame alongside her Gen-Z castmates Millie Bobby Brown, Finn Wolfhard, Caleb McLaughlin and Noah Schnapp (though she clarifies, they don't currently have a WhatsApp group).
'Luckily, I've got an amazing cast that are going through the exact same thing that I am, so I've got a very strong support system,' Sink said during a game of Ask Me Anything with ELLE, when asked about the process of adapting to fame.
'I think now with like the masks and everything, it's harder to get recognised but I remember struggling with that at the beginning, [I was] getting really anxious whenever people would ask for pictures, just like, "What is going on?" So that's been a real adjustment.'
