Sadie began to demonstrate her acting ability at a very young age. When she barely turned seven, she participated in an amateur play High School Musical in which her brother, Mitchell, participated as well. When parents saw their daughter on stage, they decided to enter her in an acting school for children and teenagers.

In 2017, Sadie got her first independent role on the big screen - the girl was part of the cast of the biographical psychodrama The Glass Castle. Its scenario was based on Jeannette Walls' memoirs; Naomi Watts and Woody Harrelson were its leading actors.
According to the actress, she wasn't very nervous when she auditioned for the second season of the much-talked-of Stranger Things, she rather was excited. Sadie found out that she had got a role at a technique of speech lesson in the acting school.
The role of Maxine Mayfield, a half-sister of an unpredictable and brutal Dacre Montgomery's character, who originally showed her discontent over moving to Hawkins in every way but fit in with local teenagers and even became their leader later, looked as it was written for Sadie.
It is interesting to note that Sadie had met Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin) and Caleb McLaughlin (Lucas) before - they had seen each other behind the stage of Broadway musicals and not even known they would work together in the future. But she met Millie Bobby Brown on the set. The actresses quickly became friends, even though their characters didn't get along in the TV series.
Spectators were so excited to watch where the story was going, and the new character made the TV series even brighter, which was the young actress' credit. In 2018, along with Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, and Noah Schnapp, Sadie was nominated for MTV Awards.
Shortly after the premiere of the second season, Sadie signed a contract with Miu Miu clothing brand and became its ambassador with Chloë Sevigny, the Fanning sisters, and Julia Garner.
