While Euphoria has earned critical acclaim, with her co-star Zendaya becoming the youngest to win the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series Emmy, it has also become controversial with reports of long working hours and overly sexualized material.

Sweeney brushed those reports aside, stating, ‘I fully trust in the filmmakers that I work with, and I’m always so excited for whatever (Euphoria creator) Sam (Levinson) writes.’

She added that she loses herself so fully in the material that she forgets what it’s like behind-the-scenes adding, ‘It’s as if it’s someone else’s life.’

‘People forget that I’m playing a character, they think, “Oh, she gets naked onscreen, she’s a sex symbol,”‘ Sweeney said.

‘And I can’t get past that. I have no problems with those scenes, and I won’t stop doing them, but I wish there was an easier way to have an open conversation about what we’re assuming about actors in the industry,’ she added.

The second season of Euphoria found Cassie hooking up with Nate Jacobs (Jacob Elordi), shortly after he split with her best friend Maddie (Alexa Demie).

‘He read me that first scene where Cassie and Nate go into the bathroom. And I was like, “Oh my God, Sam, you’re a madman,”‘ Sweeney says of Cassie and Nate’s first hookup at a rowdy New Year’s Eve party.

That first episode paved the way for her to continue secretly hooking up with Nate, and lead to her now-infamous bathroom breakdown that likely secured her Emmy nomination 

‘I feel really bad for Cassie; she’s losing herself so much. But I thrive doing that s**t. People talk about how heavy this season is, but I love it,’ Sweeney added.

Sweeney will produce and star as a woman, ‘grappling with class dynamics and sexual politics and trying to find agency in her life.’
