    Returning to 2016, Season 2 of ‘Stranger Things’ ended perfectly with the Snowball dance. However, not all fans were happy with the closing. The kiss between Max Mayfield and Lucas Sinclair was found inappropriate by many. Fans objected to the showrunners for including an intimate scene between two young actors. Recently, Sadie Sink who plays Max in the series, shared how she felt about the kiss with Caleb McLaughlin, who plays Lucas.

    In an interview with IndieWire, Sadie along with the showrunners, Shawn Levy and Dan Cohen, revealed that the kiss in the ninth episode of season two was unscripted. She shared that the Duffer Brothers popped it on the day she arrived for the shoot for the Snowball dance. The news startled the young actress.

    Sadie was 15 years old at the time and McLaughlin was 16. However, the ‘Fear Street’ actress was not uncomfortable or angry with the last-minute addition. Moreover, Sadie looks back at the moment humorously.

    “We were both awkward, but it was also funny because all our friends were there and all these extras and lights and music. It was nerve-wracking at the time, but I look back now and can laugh about it,” shared the Stranger Things actress with W Magazine.

    In the interview with IndieWire, Sadie asserted that she would not do anything with which she was not comfortable. On Beyond Stranger Things, Ross Duffer jokingly reminisced about the filming. Seeing Sadie freak out about the unscripted kiss he said, “Well, I gotta make her do it now.
