Newest Stranger Things Star is a Passionate Vegan

Young actress Sadie Sink—known as Mad Max on the new season of Stranger Things—is now vegan thanks to fellow actor Woody Harrelson.

Actress Sadie Sink—who plays a character known as “Mad Max” on hit Netflix series Stranger Things—confirmed in a recent interview that she is vegan. Sink followed a vegetarian diet for approximately one year before fellow vegan actor Woody Harrelson—with whom she worked on film The Glass Castle—helped the young starlet go vegan. “I am a passionate vegan,” the 15-year-old told media outlet Just Jared, before revealing that she cares for three companion animals—two dogs and one cat—and that her favorite documentary is Blackfish. During the filming of Stranger Things 2 in Atlanta, GA, Sink revealed that she enjoyed lattes made with plant-based milk on-set and found a vegan replacement for her favorite dish, chicken and waffles, at plant-based eatery Cafe Sunflower.
