Making a decision way out of character! Sarah Cameron (Madelyn Cline) cheated on boyfriend John B (Chase Stokes) with Topper (Austin North) during Outer Banks season 3.

“I was so scared about this storyline because I felt that inherently wasn’t in Sarah’s nature,” Madelyn, 25, told Entertainment Tonight following the third season premiere. “I wanted to make it feel like ultimately she was so lost and so confused. John B has been Sarah’s home, and she gets kicked out of that home, figuratively, so where does she go?”

The Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery star explained that her character “has nowhere to go” after fighting with John B.

“She’s kind of on her own. It’s just hard, you tend to go toward a person who will welcome you,” Madelyn added. “I think that’s a very human thing and it’s complicated, just like any relationship.”
