Sydney Sweeney says her dad and grandpa turned off Euphoria and walked out

Sydney Sweeney says her dad and grandpa turned off Euphoria and walked out

Sydney Sweeney has revealed her relatives walked out after watching her performance in gritty teen drama, Euphoria

Given it’s a gritty teen drama, it’s understandable that Euphoria wouldn’t be a must-watch for everyone.

However, actor Sydney Sweeney has revealed that some of her family couldn't even watch the HBO show, including her dad and grandad.

Her relatives weren’t the only ones who struggled with the risqué drama though – as the 25-year-old explained.

Following Sweeney’s casting in the hit series, she claims she was typecast, with TV execs struggling to see past her iconic Euphoria character, Cassie.

She even admitted to having to ‘fight’ for roles, in a recent interview with Variety.

Sweeney told the outlet: "It’s the ones I have to fight for that usually are the ones that I want that are different, like Reality. I had to audition for it. I had to put myself on tape and send in my audition just like everybody else.”

Continuing, she added: "It was the same for White Lotus. They didn’t think that I was right for White Lotus, because I did Euphoria. So I put myself on tape, I auditioned for White Lotus just like everybody else and had a call back like everybody else.

"I could get offered roles that are similar to the ones that I’ve played, but the ones that are different, the ones that surprise people that I do, are the ones that I usually have to fight for."

While the star may have had to persuade TV execs to see beyond her HBO role, some of her family couldn't even watch Euphoria.

The actor revealed that her relatives walked out after seeing Euphoria.

During her appearance on Sunday Today With Willie Geist, the actor revealed that her family had been a little shocked by her risqué role.

Sweeney also admitted that some family members were less prepared than others, with her dad not visiting the Euphoria set.

"My mom visited me on set at the time, so she knew the story and I talked to her a lot about it — my dad didn't," she confessed, "Yeah, I didn't prepare my dad. At all."

Because of this, the actor’s father decided to watch the NSFW drama with other relatives, clueless about what they were about to watch.

"I mean, how do you bring it up in conversation? And also, when I talk to my dad, it's usually not about work. We talk, like, father-daughter conversations. He decided he was going to watch it, without telling me, with his parents."

Understandably, some were less than impressed

"My dad and my grandpa turned it off and walked out," she admitted, "But my grandma is a big supporter of mine. She's a big fan of mine. Actually I bring her, usually, all over the world to my different sets and I make her an extra."
