Filming all those encounters with Vecna was a thrilling experience for Sadie Sink when she got appreciated for episode 4. Her chances of survival were depleting second by second while she was in the trance stuck at Upside Down. In her interview with Vanity Fair, Sadie said she got the script for episodes 3 and 4 in 2020. She got to know about the whole plot and Max’s fragile condition then suddenly it all stopped. They shot some of the scenes before the pandemic and then didn’t get to continue that chain for more than a year.
“So, it was bizarre, starting and then stopping it, and then revisiting it so much later,” Sadie remarked.
According to her, the gap somehow unlinked things as they have abruptly closed everything. And then begin it again from the same point. While nobody from the team was ready to get out again after such a long time and go back to the production.
