The Knockturnal wrapped our HBO’s Euphoria interviews with the insanely talented Nika King, Storm Reid, and Colman Domingo. In season one of Euphoria we watch as high school student Rue Bennet, played by Zendaya, struggles with a drug addiction after coming out of rehab. Along with putting herself through hell, Rue doesn’t realize how her addiction is also affecting her mom Leslie, played by Nika King, and sister Gia, played by Storm Reid, as well. While struggling with sobriety, Rue meets a sponsor named Ali, played by Colman Domingo. Ali attempts to try and get Rue to understand that only she can help herself, and that she can no longer use people in her life, like Jules, as an emotional crutch to justify why she should stay sober. In our interviews with the amazing cast, Nika King described what it was like filming her iconic fight scene with Rue and how it was actually improvised, which many fans did not know. We also learned that the newest season will feature a more in depth look into Gia’s character who we saw rebelling a bit in season one.
Check out our interviews with Nika King, Storm Reid, and Colman Domingo and don’t forget to watch Euphoria Season 2 streaming on HBO on January 9th and let us know what you think!
