Sadie Sink visited The show tonight on Monday night (May 24) to talk about the terrifying season ahead of stranger things and his origin story as a living room musical theater geek. But before she could get to that, confessed Swiftie host Jimmy Fallon only had to ask the 20-year-old actress what it was like to star in the Taylor Swift short. for “All Too Well”.
“Taylor said she wasn’t going to make it if you didn’t play it,” Fallon told Sink while recounting a conversation he recently had with the singer. “She really wanted you to be in this movie.” Shaking her head in disbelief, Sink still seemed dazzled by her good fortune, saying, “No! As if I didn’t know that she knew I existed! And if she had asked me to be a tree in something, I would have said yes in the blink of an eye.
For the record, Fallon would totally be a tree in any Swift project if she’s interested. When the host asked how Taylor was as the project’s director, Sink was unequivocal in his praise. “Amazing,” she said, noting that this was Swift’s first time directing actors on set. “Obviously I mean she can do anything, so she was amazing.”
True to her love of snapping embarrassing photos, Fallon then reminded Sink that this wasn’t the first time she’d made me Swift, as Sink blushed at the image of her as a child taking a fan photo with the singer backstage at a Show. “I was so overwhelmed,” she recalls. “Because my eyes were half closed and I looked like a drunk child!”
Sink has also done its best not to spoil the first volume of season 4 of Stranger Things — which debuts on Netflix this Friday (May 27) – teasing that it’s “darker and scarier than ever” and that her character, Max, “isn’t getting too hot” as she navigates an emo phase .
