‘Euphoria’ star Minka Kelly, who plays Samantha in season two of the series, has stepped forward to talk about nude scenes.
Deadline obtained quotes from Kelly’s interview with Vanity Fair, in which she talked about her experiences on the set. Kelly said her character, Samantha, was scheduled to get naked during her very first scene. But once she expressed her discomfort to ‘Euphoria’ creator Sam Levinson, things changed.
For the uninitiated, ‘Euphoria’ follows recovering drug addict Rue, played by Zendaya, who struggles with relationships, and mental health along with her peers. The show is raw and unsparing in its portrayal of Gen Z and includes nudity and violence in its revealing storylines.
Kelly recalled her conversation on her nude scene. “I said, ‘I’d love to do this scene, but I think we can keep my dress on. He (Sam) was like, ‘Okay!’ He didn’t even hesitate. And he shot a beautiful scene and got exactly what he wanted.”
