Sydney and her friends were baffled by the question, “What does that mean?”
You began shooting at the end of the year 2020 and finished just before the new year. “Wow, what a ride!”
For a few days, we were confined to our rooms. And after we left, no one was allowed to enter the property, and we had to re-test every other day for the rest of the week. So we wore masks or shields if we had makeup on the entire time.
For the director, it’s a real challenge, because as an actor, we get so much from the director’s notes and facial expressions, and especially someone like Mike—so there’s much that he’s trying to explain to you on his face. As a result, we’d ask, “What do you mean?” a lot.
No, I don’t think they were accurate representations of Generation Z members.
Sydney: I believe we were a distinct subset of Generation Z. Olivia and Paula are not, in my opinion, representative of all of Gen Z.
A lot of the feedback that I’ve received has come from millennials, so I’m not sure if it’s a true representation of Generation Z. There was no air conditioning in the laundry room where my brother, Quinn’s age, spent the night. In addition, he brought his PlayStation 5.
Sydney: I could definitely see my younger brother in the character as well.
When I was younger, I was around a lot of millennials because I had an older sister and had a lot of time with them. The culture of millennials, then, is more my style. I, on the other hand, was born in 1996, making me somewhere between a millennial and a member of Generation Z. My sister told me that if you’re like me and fall somewhere in the middle, your decision will be influenced by which culture you identify with the most. If you were born after September 11, 2001, you’re considered a millennial, even if you don’t like the sound of that word.
Sydney: Because I’ve discussed this before with many of the “Euphoria” cast members, where I feel like we don’t identify as either, I believe there is a term for it. Basically, we’re a mix of the two.
