If you are obsessed with the science fiction genre, then you are probably into the second season of the TV series Stranger Things. You saw these exceptional teen actors deal with the disappearance of a boy amidst supernatural events occurring around a fictional town in Indiana in the 80s, but you just can’t get enough of them outside of the screen, too. Since the first season premiered in July last year, you became obsessed with the Stranger Things kids. I think it’s safe to assume so, anyway. Some of them recently arrived at the 45th Annual American Music Awards in Los Angeles at the Microsoft Theater on November 19. Sadie Sink, Caleb McLaughlin and Gaten Matarazzo were all on hand to enjoy an evening of revelry at the star-studded event.
It was a night where they were looking forward to sweet music. They looked absolutely stunning.
Fifteen-year-old actress Sadie, appeared on the red carpet in a metallic link dress, rounding off her look with silver high heels.
Also, her on-screen love, 16-year-old Caleb McLaughlin opted for a paint-spatter suit.
Their co-star, the 15-year-old Gaten Matarazzo, went for a purple two-piece and floral shirt.
The trio came to present an award at the ceremony, also attended by Selena Gomez, Pink, Kelly Clarkson and Christina Aguilera.
Sadie recently revealed that she felt ‘stressed out’ for having to kiss Caleb when on set. She sparked a Twitter backlash earlier this month when she revealed she was made to kiss him at an on-screen school dance by show creators Ross and Matt Duffer.
On Beyond Stranger Things, she said: “The kiss was not written in the script. I get there, the first day of Snow Ball….. One of you, I think it was you Ross, you say, “Oh, Sadie, you ready for the kiss?” I’m like, “What! No! That’s not in the script”.”
‘That’s not happening,’ she said. ‘So the whole day I was like stressed out, I was like “Oh my god, wait, am I gonna have to…”‘
The show creator Ross Duffer said it was Sadie’s response triggered the follow-through. Ross claimed: ‘You reacted so strongly to this.’
Sadie and Caleb seemed as friendly as ever despite the recent controversy, though.
Gaten also looked adorable on the red carpet.
His suit went well with his absolutely adorable floral shirt.
Ross goes on: ‘I was just joking and you were so freaked out that I was like well, I gotta make her do it now.’
The kiss was shot on the second day of filming the Snow Ball scenes.
It was probably scary for Sadie because there were a lot of people in the crowd, including parents. Sadie’s mother was also on set for the filming.
After the chat sparked a backlash against the show’s creators on Twitter, Sadie spoke out. She said: ‘I mean, of course, I was nervous because it’s a first kiss, right? But I never objected to [it] or felt pushed into anything. I always felt comfortable and they do the best job.’
