The 23-year-old actress gave an update on the HBO drama’s second season, teasing the upcoming “beautiful” episodes in a new interview in the September issue of InStyle.
“I do miss Rue. She’s like my little sister in a lot of ways. And going back to that character is a home base for me,” Zendaya relishes of her character. “There is a beautiful second season that has been written, but in order to do it the way we want to do it, we need to wait until it’s safer.”
During the time being, Zendaya has kept busy, and told the magazine that she “painted for a week, and then I tried working out for a week, but I burned out on both very quickly.”She states that the pandemic has taught her, Zendaya explains this is “a new chapter for me.” So expect a whole new and evolved Zendaya when filming starts. She also said that “There is an idea to do a couple of bridge episodes that can be shot safely but aren’t necessarily part of season 2,” she adds. “So, hopefully, we will be able to do those in the coming months. I can’t wait.”
Just last month, Zendaya became a first-time Emmy nominee for her role as Rue, a biracial recovering drug addict. She was nominated in the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series category. As with all of HBO’s releases, Euphoria‘s production was unfortunately put on hold in March 2020 due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Hopefully with different faces filming will continue fairly soon.
