None of the characters in HBO’s high school drama Euphoria has a particularly easy time of it, and Cassie, played by Sydney Sweeney, is no exception. After having an abortion and divorcing one of her soccer boyfriend McKay in season one, Cassie begins the second season in what the actress describes as a “low, lonely place.” This manifests in its beginning with an ill-considered flight with the resident villain Nate Jacobs.
This bad romance has made many viewers shout at Cassie to run for the hills, but in episode two of the season we see that Nate may have sincere feelings for Cassie: after being knocked out by Fez, he has a dream in which they are together, and she is pregnant. For actress Sweeney, that meant she was equipped with a complete prosthetic pregnancy, a process she broke down on her Instagram story.
“This stomach was insane,” she wrote, before explaining exactly how the prosthetic was made. First a complete mold was made of her body in which she was covered with “goop,” and then “papier mache,” before it was removed. The baby bump was then made out of that mold.
Season two of Euphoria continues a murder series for Sweeney, who showed up with her series while playing a very different but no less compelling character in Mike White’s satirical comedy drama The White Lotus. “Unlike Cassie, whose basic qualities emerge during moments of impulse when her emotions burn brightly, Olivia’s cruelty is premeditated, and always conceals,” Abby Robinson writes. Digital Spy. “Olivia may seem like butter will not melt, but that’s exactly what makes her so threatening.”
