Imagine Sadie Sink, with her fiery red hair and unwavering spirit, stepping into the boots of Aloy, the fierce and fearless protagonist of the Horizon: Zero Dawn universe.

The Stranger Things star, known for her role as the gutsy Max, would be trading in her skateboard for a bow and arrow and fur. Doesn't that sound like a match made in heaven? Sadie's proven time and again that she's got what it takes to handle intense, action-packed roles, and Aloy's character is no stroll in the park. She's a hunter, a survivor, and a bit of a mystery - kind of like Max, but with more robots and fewer Demogorgons.

Plus, the way she would look in the role is perfect. This gorgeous image of Sink as Aloy, by artist DiamondDead, clearly paints the picture for us.

But alas, the rumor mills might have gotten our hopes up a bit too soon. As of now, Sadie Sink hasn't been confirmed to play Aloy in the Horizon: Zero Dawn TV series. But, hey, in the world of TV and movies, anything can happen, right? We can dream, and who knows, maybe the casting gods are listening. Until then, we'll just have to keep our fingers crossed and our eyes peeled for any official news.

Now, let's chat about the show itself. Horizon: Zero Dawn is a wild ride through a world where nature and machine collide, creating a landscape that’s as beautiful as it is deadly. Think robotic dinosaurs roaming lush forests and deserts - it’s like Jurassic Park met The Terminator and decided to start a new life together. Aloy's journey through this world is epic, filled with heart-pounding action and mind-bending mysteries about what happened to the old world.

When it comes to Aloy herself, she's not just any hero - she's a beacon of resilience, curiosity, and strength. Raised as an outcast, Aloy is determined to uncover her past and the secrets of the Earth overrun by machines. She's the kind of character that leaps off the screen (or, in this case, the game console), making you root for her every step of the way. It's a role that demands a certain depth and complexity, and Sadie Sink, with her knack for portraying layered characters, could be just the right fit.

But, as I mentioned, there hasn't been any official word when it comes to casting for the Horizon Zero Dawn show but fret not - maybe we will hear of something soon.
