Sadie Saxton is a main character, female lead and anti-hero of the MTV series Awkward. Sadie is the former main antagonist of Season 1, Season 2, and part one of Season 3. She is portrayed as the popular 17 year old mean girl and malevolent student who is only popular because of her rich status, which has changed since the start of season 3 because her family became broke and their separation became Sadie's living nightmare, but she has since been adopted by Ally, after the permission of Sadie's mother Darlene and the help of the school's guidance counselor Valerie Marks. However Sadie has shown her insecurites such as her weight.
Because of her popularity she plays in the stereotype of a mean girl and many enemies and frenemies at school, especially her arch-nemesis and enemy of Jenna Hamilton. Other enemies include, Ming Huang and Clark Stevenson, Amber Horn, Tamara Kaplan, Angelique Welch and Collin Jennings. But despite this, she has a best friend named Lissa Miller, and is close friends with Matty McKibben, whom she previously had a crush on.
Throughout the series, she has had two relationships with Ricky Schwartz who cheated on her, but later died and also Austin Welch, but has broken-up with him because she was "unfaithful" but she still loves him.
Since the start of Season 4, she has been trying to get Lissa to quit her position as head cheerleader so that she can become it and she has also started working in a food-truck, but has since been promoted to head-chef.
She is played by American actress Molly Tarlov.
Sadie is introduced as the mean girl during Jenna's first day of sophomore year. While Jenna is in a bathroom stall, Sadie and her best friend Lissa talk about her and her alleged suicide attempt. Even going so far as saying that Jenna wants people to talk about her because she must be desperate for attention. Later on, Sadie is chosen to play with Matty for a pep rally game. For the other team, Jenna volunteers since everyone was staring at her anyway. Jenna went first to spin the wheel of pep and it landed on Sex Exchange, a game in which the team members had to swap clothes with each other and who ever does this the fastest wins. Jenna wins, but finds out that the reason Matty and Sadie lost was because Sadie couldn't fit into Matty's clothes. Jenna tries to apologize to Sadie for making her feel bad, but Sadie claims that she picked the Sex Exchange Game on purpose. She then says she fine since she's not like she's going to kill herself.
While changing in the girl's locker room, Sadie convinces Lissa to take a naked picture of Jenna in order to stop her from stealing Lissa's boyfriend Jake. The picture is then sent to the entire school. When the photo is traced back to Sadie's phone, she takes responsibility for taking the picture in order to protect Lissa, but is able to weasel her way out of getting punished by the school's guidance counselor Valerie Marks.
During a kickback party hosted at Lissa's house, Sadie is upset when Jenna and her best friend Tamara show up. Especially when Matty says that he invited them. When Lissa decides to let everyone inside her family's hot tub despite Sadie's adversion to swimsuits, she takes a piece of Lissas's dogs poop and throws it into the hot tub when no one's looking.
When a majority of the partygoers (from the previous episode) are infected with pink eye, a rumor starts going around that there was an orgy in Lissas's hot tub. Tamara sees that Sadie was infected as well, but is convinced that she is faking it in order to look cool. She confronts Sadie at the homecoming pep rally, but she monks Tamara for being a poser. Tamara then steals the school's fire hose and sprays it all over Sadie. Revealing that her pink eye was actually make-up.
Jenna is forced by her mother Lacey to attend a social event in hopes of joining an elite mother-daughter charity group called "The Knick-Knackers". As it turns out, the event is being hosted in Sadie's house, and her mother Darlene is the group's president. After she mutters the phrase, "You have to be cruel to be kind", Jenna and Tamara believe that Sadie wrote the carefrontation letter since that was listed as the seventh suggestion. When Sadie is later caught eating junk food by her mother, she tearfully breaks down about how insecure she feels about her weight, and that she will end up alone beacause of it. Darlene barely shows any compassion for Sadie, and tells her that the only way for her to lose weight is to write down everything she eats in her food journal. Which was secretly taken by Jenna and Tamara during the charity event. After Jenna reveals to Sadie that she has the journal, she blackmails her into securing a spot for Lacey in the Knick-Knackers. While returning the journal, Jenna briefly mentions the letter to Sadie, but she quickly denies it. It's later revealed through Darlene that Sadie convinced her to accept Jenna and her mother into the group since as a charity organization they should have a "charity case".
Sadie is described as cruel, manipulative, vindictive and mean to arch-nemesis Jenna Hamilton. Although despite this she has been shown to be a good friend to Matty McKibben (despite telling Jake about him and Jenna). She can also be comedically-mean, by insulting someone and then uses her infamous catchphrase "You're Welcome." It is also revealed that she is very insecure about her heavy weight and weakness (fluffernutters). It is also hinted that she is jealous of Jenna because she is dating Matty, who is also Sadie's crush.
Despite her weight, she has admitted to Matty that she loves herself, despite being accused of killing Ricky and being poor in Season 3.
She can also be easily frustrated and as a result, mean to her best friend Lissa.
She also admits that she is a bitch, but not a heartless bitch, which proves that she is also not afraid to admit to people who she is.
Sadie is a young girl around the ages of 16-17, she is typically pretty and even admits that she loves herself. However this love for herself is most likely a facade, especially since she wrote verbatim "I hate myself" in her food diary. She is very self-conscious about her heavy weight, even crying about it. Sadie was also visibily peturbed when her mother complimented Jenna's petite figure and told her to ask her for diet advice. She has dark shoulder-lengthed brown hair, which is often tied up in a bun and also brown eyes. She is also 5'6."
Her style is preppy and she often wears "clothes for comfort" due to her insecurities about her weight. She is also a cheerleader.
