Who is ‘Stranger Things’ Star Sadie Sink?
Fans know Sadie from her role as Max Mayfield on the Netflix series, but she’s also on the Swifties’ radar. The actress, 20, starred alongside Dylan O’Brien in the mini-movie for Taylor Swift‘s 10-minute-long version of “All Too Well.” For years, Taylor has been teasing the extended version of her, arguably, most beloved track.
“It included the F-word and basically I remember my sound guy was like, ‘Hey, I burned a CD of that thing that you were doing in case you want it.’ And I was like, ‘Sure,’” Taylor said of the song while appearing on Rolling Stone‘s “500 Greatest Albums” podcast in November 2020. “I ended up taking it home and listening to it. And I was like, ‘I actually really like this but it definitely is like 10 minutes long and I need to pare it down.’”
So, when Red was released in October 2012, fans got the shorter version of the song. Since Taylor has been rereleasing her records with songs from “The Vault,” she unveiled the extended track in November 2021. Prior to the Red (Taylor’s Version) release, the songstress teased the “All Too Well” short film with a 30-second clip on social media paired with a caption that included red scarf emojis, lots of red scarf emojis.
“Remember it,” Taylor captioned the video, which revealed that she had written and directed the movie. The “Look What You Made Me Do” singer then released the music video on November 12, 2021, which had an impressive performance by both Sadie and Dylan.
“For me, it was just a cool opportunity to step out of being a kid on screen,” Sadie told Glamour Magazine in June 2022 of the music video. “It was really special to me. Taylor is someone I’ve always wanted to work with, but never thought I would because I didn’t think our paths would ever cross,” she added.
“She’s such an incredible human being, so smart and so grounded. To have her as a friend, as a director, as a mentor and to be able to bring such an iconic song to life was just an honor.”
