Storm Reid on Filming Difficult 'Euphoria' Scene: "I Don't Want To Do This Anymore"

Noting it “really bothered” her.

Storm Reid got candid about filming Season 2 of Euphoria, particularly opening up about episode 5.

The actor, who plays Gia, AKA Rue (Zendaya)’s younger sister, revealed that although she was acting, filming the scene in which her sister is having a breakdown was especially difficult for her.

“Once you call cut and say it’s a wrap for the day, I’m usually able to go home and be fine, but I spent a lot of time thinking about what we shot after the fact,” Reid told E! News in a recent interview. “I think it really bothered me.”

She continued, “That’s your true raw emotion of what’s going on in the scene and to see [Rue] kick down that door and scream at me and like us tussling, I was just like, ‘Oh my God, I don’t want to do this anymore.’ Like I’m tussling with my sister.”

However, according to Reid, what she hopes viewers can take away from the show makes it all worthwhile. “That’s a part of the reason why we make Euphoria, to be relatable and to try to put a hand out to somebody and say, ‘Hey, we know what you’re going through.’”

Seasons 1 and 2 of Euphoria are currently streaming on HBO Max.
