Zendaya Treats Euphoria Fans to a Behind the Scenes Glimpse at Season 2. The Emmy winner, 24, shared multiple sneak peeks of her day on the set of the HBO drama on Tuesday, May 4.
Zendaya first posted a picture of actor Angus Cloud , who plays drug dealer Fez onscreen, perched on a kitchen counter while wearing baggy jeans, a blue crew neck, and a face mask. "Missed this kid," she wrote, adding, "And these kids..." along with another behind-the-scenes pic on her Instagram Story.
The second post showed friend Alex and lighting technician Danny Durr chilling on the retro-style couch in between takes.
The actress, who stars as Rue, ended her little preview with a picture of sound stage seven where Euphoria is filmed. "Just being back here in general...missed it," she captioned the pensive pic.
After season one dropped in the summer of 2019, the Euphoria team released two special episodes during the coronavirus pandemic to satiate fans. The first, "Trouble Don't Last Always," focused on Rue and was released in December. Co-star Hunter Schafer took center stage in the second episode about Jules, which was titled "F--k Anyone Who's Not a Sea Blob" and came out in January this year. Though many details of the second season are under wraps, actress Barbie Ferreira recently teased that it's "going to be even more rambunctious and in-depth, more fantastical and trippy—all that good stuff," per the CR Fashion Book .
Z has previously shared why she's so drawn to the dark high school show. "Rue has such darkness to her, but also innocence. I have to be super vulnerable and sad in front of people. It's weird, but cathartic in a lot of ways," the fashionista told Elle in 2019.
It seems the show has become a large part of her life and identity, as she explained, " Euphoria was eight months of my life, and now that it's done I'm like, ‘F--k.'... You put your s--t out there, and it's a really terrifying thing to do. It's out for the world to see—it's so f--king weird."
She also admitted she experienced "a lot" of anxiety every week when Euphoria came out.
It seems to have all been worth it, though. At the 2020 Emmy Awards, the show took home the trophies for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for Zendaya, Outstanding Original Music And Lyrics, and Outstanding Contemporary Makeup (Non-Prosthetic).
