Sadie Sink and Finn Wolfhard’s dating rumors explained

We always love a good story of actors falling in love on set. While the rest of us struggle to find partners via dating apps or the good old bar, our favorite stars often meet the love of their lives while filming shows and movies.

The cast of Stranger Things is no different. Natalia Dyer and Charlie Heaton are a power couple both on and off the screen. The two met on the set of hit Netflix sci-fi drama in 2016 and have been together ever since. “In that first audition, we read with chemistry [Heaton and] Natalia, and the sparks flew,” series co-creator Matt Duffer told GQ in 2020. The two have kept their relationship low-key for the most part, but Dyer once shared that she loved dating someone who knew her job . “It’s an interesting thing to work with someone you go home with,” she told Refinery29. “It’s always really fun. We’re really comfortable with each other, so we can play and feel more free, and we can talk about it beforehand.”

With Dyer and Heaton going strong, some fans can’t help but “ship” the other actors on the show. For example, there have been rumors that Sadie Sink and Finn Wolfhard were once a couple — but is there any truth to it?

TikTok sparked the Sadie Sink and Finn Wolfhard relationship rumors

According to TikTok, Sadie Sink and Finn Wolfhard are in love — or at least once were. It’s unclear who initiated the rumor, but there have been multiple posts that the two had entered into a romantic relationship. But as it turns out, those were all just baseless rumors, and fans took to Twitter to express their frustration at people spreading lies.

“St. Tiktok lies all the time, Sadie and Finn have never been together and it just spreads false rumors and creates false drama between the cast who are literally like family,” said one fan said. “‘Finn and Sadie are dating’, ‘Finn and Noah want to kiss’, ‘Millie and-‘ why do you all want the kids on Stranger Things to date? It happened on the set of Shameless, Chaos followed and now the actors Die Those involved won’t even acknowledge the show Is that what you all want? tweeted another frustrated fan. There are also fans who have reminded people to respect the stars’ privacy. “Can you just leave Sadie and Finn alone? Actually ALL ACTORS?! They can’t interact on camera anymore, can’t even look at each other properly just because of your stupid assumptions!” she wrote.

Fans were only right to defend themselves for their favorite actors. After all, even the stars themselves have spoken openly about privacy issues. “It just annoys me when people try to push the boundaries and I just wish people were more respectful,” Millie told Bobby Brown on her 2020 Instagram Story (via Teen Vogue). “I’m still trying to get through it all and it’s so overwhelming.”

Sadie Sink and Finn Wolfhard might be dating other people

Like their peers, Sadie Sink and Finn Wolfhard are incredibly mommy about their dating lives — and rightly so. Sink doesn’t appear to be dating anyone, but Wolfhard is reportedly in a relationship with actress Elsie Richter.

In an interview with The Washington Post, Wolfhard opened up about how fans threatened to dox Richter if he refused to confirm their romance, which led to him posting a photo of them together. “They’re like, ‘Oh, okay, I’m so sorry. We love her,'” he told the publication. “Everything literally fades away as soon as you say, ‘Hey, calm down. It’s cool. I’m a real person.’ It’s almost like a trance or something. Maybe it’s a power thing.”

As for the rest of the cast? They said they treat each other like family. “We are siblings. We fight all the time,” Millie Bobby Brown told the Daily Mail in 2018. Wolfhard even said that there used to be “rivalries” between them. “When you start a show so young, there’s drama and rivalries because it’s like school. And then you get older and stop caring,” Wolfhard said. “I think it’s really so incredible to get back together and be like, ‘Wow, I really get you. We’re all going through this thing together. I love you.'”
