Zendaya is draped in all red garments on the cover of Paper magazine’s new issue.
Here’s what the 22-year-old actress shared:
On the role of Rue in Euphoria: “I fell in love with who Rue was. It felt special because I don’t like to read scripts, and for me to read through it faster than anything I’ve ever read before, obviously I connected with it somehow.”
On showrunner Sam Levinson having her in mind from the start to play Rue: “Sam Levinson told me, ‘You were on my vision board’ and I thought, ‘You’re joking.’ There’s no way he saw anything I did in the past and thought, ‘Hmm, that girl could potentially play me. The character Rue is basically him and his life experiences. I felt so worried about proving myself. It was very scary.”
On feeling anxious about whether she could handle a role like Rue: “I finally felt like I was doing something that I could push myself [with]. But always you’re still going to have that doubt, and [I’m] still in my head, like, Wait, can I do it?”
Euphoria will premiere on June 16th on HBO.
