“Euphoria” without Zendaya: Rue’s role almost went to another woman
It’s hard to imagine “Euphoria” without Zendaya, but it almost happened. the casting director Jennifer Venditti told Variety that, before closing with Zendaya, the production had its eye on an anonymous young woman. The unknown had a similar trajectory to Rue, and this interested the creative team of “Euphoria”.
“A young woman was observed on the streets by my team. She was a magical person, she had a similar trajectory to Rue and made it to the other side. But a TV show can last for many years. We all loved her, but when we went through the rigors of the process, we didn’t know if she could handle what it took, in terms of resistance.” explain Jennifer.
The young woman even underwent training, but Jennifer and Sam Levinson felt no confidence that she was ready for the series. And then Zendaya entered the game. “It’s the opposite, because Zendaya doesn’t have any life experience like Rue, but she was able to dig into her toolbox and access it in a very beautiful way.”says the casting director.
