Opened “Euphoria” actress Barbie Ferreira The Chair Expert podcast About exiting the Emmy Award-winning HBO series ahead of its third season. Ferrera announced last August that she was moving on from “Euphoria” and would no longer play Kat Hernandez. Her exit followed reports that she clashed with “Euphoria” creator Sam Levinson during the second season over her character’s direction. Fans noticed that Kat’s story was sidelined in Season 2, and one rumor claimed that she walked out during a fight with Levinson.
So, for me, when people ask me about season two, they usually come to me, like, I was kind of a victim of season two and I’m always like, ‘No, it’s okay, I promise.’ Ferreira said on the podcast. “I’m kind of taken in by this drama that I didn’t ask to be in and never talked about. I’m of the mindset that if it doesn’t come out, I’m not going to process it because I’ll add fuel to it. It’s taken on as a life of its own. Don’t believe everything you read.”
Of the rumours, Ferreira added, “I actually never got off set.” “I sprained my ankle once and had to take an X-ray. Maybe that’s what they mean?”
Ferreira continued to discuss her exit from the show, asserting that it was a “mutual decision” to leave because her storyline had run out of gas.
“I don’t think there was a place [Kat] Ferreira said. “I think there were places she could have gone. I just don’t think it would be a good fit for the show. I don’t know if that would do her justice, and I think both parties know that. I really wanted to be able to not be a fat best friend.” I don’t want to play that, and I don’t think they want to either.”
Ferreira also noted that filming the season of “Euphoria” takes about nine months, and hinted that she wasn’t able to work on anything else for most of that time. From a professional standpoint, it didn’t make sense for her to give up nearly a year of filming on a show as her role became increasingly limited.
Ferreira added, “I feel like with the second season and certain parts of it, I felt like it was kind of a struggle for both parties.” “Sam, I… It was a struggle to find its continuation. So it really hurt watching it and seeing fans get upset. I just felt like maybe I was a little overdue? So, for me, it felt really good to be like, ‘Okay. , you don’t have to worry about this and you don’t have to worry about it ’cause it’s stressful.”
Ferreira concluded, “Sam writes, like the things he relates to. I don’t think he connects with Kat. I love Kat, so I have to go my own way. At first, I was like, ‘Oh my God, I’m a loser. I’m a loser.'” It was a really good thing.”
Production of the third season of “Euphoria” is set to begin later this year for a possible 2024 return to HBO.
