'My Cousins Don't Need That'

Though Sydney Sweeney has starred in a number of popular TV shows, she is still best known for her work on Euphoria. In the hit HBO drama, Sweeney portrays Cassie Howard, a teenager whose need for romantic love often leads her down roads better left untraveled. Sweeney has long since shared that she loves how relatable Cassie is. However, her character isn’t the only aspect of Euphoria that she feels deeply connected to. It seems that some of the show’s main themes also hit home with Sweeney as she’s watched some members of her family struggle with addiction.

Drug and alcohol addiction is discussed frequently in ‘Euphoria’

While Euphoria is an ensemble show, its central theme surrounds drug and alcohol addiction. The show is narrated by Rue Bennett (Zendaya), a recovering drug addict navigating adolescence and trying to get clean. Much of the show focuses on Rue’s sobriety, or lack thereof, and how it affects her friends and family on micro and macro levels. The theme of the show is something that Sweeney herself has a personal connection with.
