Filming begins on Outer Banks Season 1, and Chase and Madelyn's chemistry is off the charts. As Madelyn tells Seventeen, “There were things that Chase and I specifically added to the script that felt personal. You have to sell it. It’s got to be compelling. Thankfully the cast all clicked and we had such great chemistry, so we all had this friendship from the very beginning. So building on that and then projecting it on the screen felt very, very real.”
