'Euphoria' stars Zendaya, Storm Reid and others take to social media to mark end of filming
As the shoot of the HBO teen drama series comes to a close, stars shared their emotions via their Instagram and Twitter accounts.
HBO teen drama series 'Euphoria' is wrapping up its shoot and stars have taken to social media to mark the occasion. The series, set to premiere on June 16, had dropped its teaser in March, which showed high school students in multiple, snappy shots. The teaser that began with Zendaya's face ended with her saying: "This is the feeling I have been searching for my entire life," while the eerie, shrill background score peaked. The series, created by Ron Leshem, Daphna Levin, and Tmira Yardeni, follows the lives of high school students as they navigate "drugs, sex, identity, trauma, social media, love, and friendship."
As the show's shoot that began in 2018 is coming to a close, stars Zendaya, Storm Reid, and Barbie Ferreira took to Instagram and Twitter to express their emotions. Zendaya shared a photo from the set on her Instagram story and wrote: "Back home...," tagging Euphoria's official handle. Zendaya plays the character of a 17-year-old lying, drug-addicted high school student named Rue on the show. The singer and actor is best known for her roles in Disney Channel's 'Shake It Up' and 'Spider-Man: Homecoming'.
Storm Reid tweeted a video of herself dancing to Queen Bey's tunes, as Beyonce's 'Homecoming' documentary can be seen playing on the telly behind her. The video was posted as part of the #BeforeILetGo challenge that was trending on Twitter after 'Homecoming' dropped and Storm celebrated Black culture, 'Homecoming', 'Game of Thrones', and 'Euphoria', all in the same post. "How I felt after seeing the #EUPHORIA trailer when #GOT ended last night," she wrote. Storm will appear as Cassie on the show. She has appeared in fantasy series 'A Wrinkle in Time' and critically acclaimed film '12 Years A Slave'.
Barbie Ferreira, who plays Kat on the series, took to Instagram to post a story about how "Euphoria is wrapping soon n a bitch is emotional." The American actor and model has previously appeared in Vice series 'How to Behave' and Teen Vogue's 'Body Party'.
