This is How Zendaya Shows Her Excitement
She said, “I just want to say thank you to the TV Academy and all the other women. This is crazy. Thank you HBO and A24 for your support. Thank you to my family and my team. To the incredible cast and crew of Euphoria. I’m so lucky and I’m inspired by everything you do.”
“I feel like this is a weird time to be celebrating, but there is hope in the young people out there. I know our TV show doesn’t always feel like a great example of that, but there is hope in the young people.”
“And to my peers out there doing the work in the streets, I see you, I admire you and I thank you. And thank you so, so much.”
“This is, whoa!”, Zendaya concluded.
Euphoria is an American modification of an Israeli TV show of the same name. It follows a drug addicted teenager Rue. Rue is played by Zendaya. She strives to fit in with her classmates and remain clean.
The real audience of HBO’s modern teen drama Euphoria isn’t truly about teens. It’s not even about the parents of teenagers. The true audience for Euphoria is parents of the children who are about 5 to 10 years old. The parents who have fairly good relationships with those kids but can discern the storm clouds on the frontier.
