Sydney Sweeney Says She Battled Producers’ Doubts to Star in ‘The White Lotus’

In a recent interview with Variety, the famous actress Sydney Sweeney said that the producers of The White Lotus didn’t think she was right for the part at first.

Sweeney was a regular on Euphoria, where she played the role of Cassie Howard, but when she tried out for The White Lotus and got the part, people were skeptical.

“There are always people who see me as Cassie or see me as Olivia,” the Euphoria star said. “They send me scripts that are just like that.”

She went on, “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. 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.”

Since 2019, Sydney Sweeney has played the role of Cassie Howard on the HBO show Euphoria.

In the American teen story The White Lotus, which came out in 2021, she played a snarky teen.

Two Emmy nominations for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie and Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series are just two of the many accolades she has received for her work in both projects.
