What has Madelyn Cline said about Outer Banks?

Talking to The Cut about how her role on Outer Banks launched her to fame practically overnight, she said: “It brought out my introversion. I respect privacy and anonymity a lot more now.”

Talking about season 3, she added: “There are certain places on earth that I would avoid at all costs, and we shot in one of them.”

Talking to Vogue about Outer Banks and how she relates to her character, she said: “So I originally got an audition for Kiara and immediately told my agent, ‘I’m not trying to whitewash any roles. I would rather pass on this.’ Instead, I ended up reading for Sarah and I fell in love with the story. I just wanted to add something to her [character] that made her quirky and relatable."

She continued: “I had a talk with Rudy Pankow [who plays JJ] before we started shooting, and we were talking characters. I had this kind of epiphany and thought, ‘What is one thing that I feel we can all relate to?’ Insecurities. We can all attest to feeling as though we don’t fit in and I wanted to bring those aspects of her character out, and relationship-wise, make it abundantly clear that if something doesn’t feel right then it has to change. It’s really important for younger generations to see those things, especially in female characters.”
