Interview: Chloe Cherry on Joining the Cast of ‘Euphoria’ and Fan Responses to Faye

Actress Chloe Cherry made a remarkable transition from the adult film world to mainstream television when she took on the role of Faye in season two of HBO’s Euphoria. While her scenes are mostly limited to interactions with Fezco (Angus Cloud) and Ashtray (Javon Walton), Cherry has made a distinct impression as Faye on the show so far.

Awards Radar had the chance to speak with Cherry about what appealed to her about the series and Faye in particular. On what she could relate to about Faye, Cherry shared:  

“I thought it was interesting and a really intense experience in acting to portray someone like that, who’s on drugs and stuff. I thought it seemed like a really interesting role to get into, so unlike me as well. She’s so different from me. It was most challenging to express someone who just doesn’t really give a fuck, because that’s not me. It’s definitely more her, someone who has a loud mouth and says whatever they’re thinking.”

On how fans have reacted to Faye, Cherry said:

“I’m actually really surprised that the reaction has been so positive. When we were first shooting it, she wasn’t exactly a protagonist. She wasn’t everyone’s favorite character. But people ended up really liking her in the end, and I think it’s because she ended up being a very good friend to Fezco. That meant a lot to people. I was really surprised that people liked her, because I thought that people might find her gross at first, but I think people ended up finding her cute, which is good.”
