“There’s a lot of me in Jules. I do think blurred lines between an actor and a character make a deeper character,” Hunter told the mag. “The work of an actor is trying to simulate a full life. Some people might say that doesn’t make me as strong of an actor, but…that’s how I learned. I’m still forming that process and also setting boundaries, which I didn’t have in season one.”
She also dished on being a bit skeptical of method acting.
“I’ve already spent a lot of my life trying to be someone I’m not,” she said. “And even if it is my job title, I’m not interested in doing that again for long periods of time.”
Hunter‘s friend and co-star Zendaya also dished about her acting and opened up about their relationship and how it started.
“I remember watching behind the camera and knowing that something had clicked,” Zendaya said about the special episode of Euphoria. “She just took whatever pain she had, and she translated it into such a beautiful performance.”
“Knowing that she was so young and so much of this was new to her, my thing was being as much of a big sister as I could,” she added about their relationship. “What we do for a living is important, but the friendship we share is more important.”
