Outer Banks is the latest offering from Netflix that brings together a talented cast of young actors. In this teen adventure set in the Outer Banks of North Carolina, we’re introduced to two socioeconomic groups of teens: the Pogues and the Kooks. Madelyn Cline plays Sarah Cameron, the Queen Bee of the Kooks, who is drawn to the ringleader of the Pogues, John B. played by Chase Stokes. Their chemistry and her excellent portrayal of her character is one of the main attractions of this series. She’s certainly someone you need to keep an eye on. So, we’ve got Madelyn Cline’s wiki to get you excited for her breakout show.
Madelyn Cline Is from South Carolina
Madelyn Cline was born on December 21, 1997 to Pam and Mark Cline. The family hails from Goose Creek in Charleston, South Carolina.
Pam Cline is a local real estate agent, while Mark Cline is a Charleston Water System engineer. Madelyn’s parents have been supportive of her acting ambitions, even taking her to New York for acting gigs.
Young Madelyn Cline attended Pinewood Preparatory School and Coastal Carolina University. She was also involved in the local pageant circuit.
Outer Banks was mostly filmed in Charleston, which makes the show all the more special for her. But, despite the proximity to her hometown, Cline had never been to the actual Outer Banks of North Carolina in her lifetime.
In recent years, her acting jobs have kept her in Los Angeles, California, but Outer Banks gave her the opportunity to visit home for a lengthy period of time.
Cline Began Modeling When She Was 10
As a child, Cline’s parents didn’t know that she wanted to work in the entertainment industry. They only discovered her interest when the then fifth-grader asked her parents to take her to a casting call at the Millie Lewis Studio in North Charleston.
Madelyn Cline made it through the auditions and ended up working as an extra on the Columbia set of a movie with the working title “Nailed” in 2008. When the movie hit theaters in 2015, it was called Accidental Love,starring Jessica Biel and Jake Gyllenhaal.
Soon the young actress and her mom flew to New York for eight weeks. Besides the usual touristy stuff, Cline did multiple commercials and photo shoots there.
Among the nine jobs she did, Madelyn did photo shoots for Toys R Us, T-Mobile Verizon, Elidel pharmaceuticals, Hatkoff department stores of Europe, and Parent & Child Magazine.
“We are really proud of her, and of how mature and professional she came across,” Pam Cline said, adding that the experience helped Madelyn overcome her shyness.
Cline Appeared in Stranger Things
After her very busy New York trip, Madelyn Cline did everything to build her resume. Besides developing her skills with ballet, vocals, and theater training, she also added more acting and modelling credits.
Cline appeared in short films and had minor roles. Among her earliest recurring roles, she played Jessica in The Originals in 2016.
This won’t be Cline’s first Netflix rodeo. She appeared in two episodes of Stranger Things as Tina in 2017. Her co-star, Chase Stokes, had a minor role in the show the previous season.
Cline booked the Stranger Things role before she graduated high school, marking a turning point for her career. After filming her part, she decided to move to L.A. to pursue acting full-time.
Over the years, Cline appeared in Vice Principals and the indie film, Boy Erased.
Outer Banks marks her first major role, and it seems she’s set to become a breakout star in the YA genre.
Stokes and Cline Are Dating
Sarah and John’s chemistry on Outer Banks made many speculate that the actors behind the characters are dating in real life. After being quiet on the rumors for a while, they revealed exciting news about their relationship in June 2020.
Posting a picture of their beach date, Stokes made their relationship social media official. Cline made a reference to Outer Banks’ Topper while responding to that post in the comments.
Besides their fans, their co-star Jonathan Daviss also showed his excitement in the comments section. Though it’s unclear if he was aware they were dating or happy they went public with their romance.
