Hunter Schafer Almost Turned Down Playing Jules in 'Euphoria'
Can you imagine Jules without her?
Believe it or not, Hunter Schafer almost rejected Euphoria. The trailblazing actor and model has recently revealed in a new interview with musical superstar Lorde that she was this close to turning down the fame-making role of Jules in the hit HBO Max show.
Euphoria is Schafer’s first acting job. In a recent episode of The A24 Podcast, “Divine Frequency,” she shared, “I had never acted before Euphoria, and it was not in my plan at all. I had never been in an audition before and my agency said that these casting people had reached out and asked me to come in and read for this role for this HBO show. I didn’t know what to think of it. And initially I was like, ‘I don’t think I want to do it,’ just because it wasn’t my thing. I was supposed to go to school in a few months, in fashion, but they asked again and I think I ended up going in.”
Lorde is very thankful, like the rest of us, as she said, “I don’t think about any other versions of Jules,” Lorde protests. “There are no other versions.”
We can’t agree more.
