None of the characters from HBO’s high school drama Euphoria having a particularly easy time, and Cassie, played by Sydney Sweeney, is no exception. After having an abortion and separating from her soccer player boyfriend McKay in the first season, Cassie begins the second season in what the actress describes as a “low and lonely place.” This manifests as her embarking on an ill-advised adventure with resident villain Nate Jacobs.
This bad romance had many viewers yelling at Cassie to run for the hills, but in episode two of the season, we see that Nate might actually have real feelings for Cassie: after being knocked out by Fez, he has a dream in which they are together, and she is pregnant. For actress Sweeney, that meant being fitted with a full prosthetic pregnancy belly, a process she broke down on her Instagram Story.
“That belly was crazy,” she wrote, before explaining exactly how the prosthesis was made. First, a full body cast was made in which she was covered in “goop”, then in “papier mâché”, before she was removed. The baby bump was then made from this mold.
Season two of Euphoria continues a killer streak for Sweeney, who showed his range while playing a very different but no less compelling character in Mike White’s satirical comedy-drama The White Lotus. “Unlike Cassie, whose core traits emerge during moments of impulsiveness when her emotions are burning, Olivia’s cruelty is premeditated and always hidden,” Abby Robinson wrote to digital spy. “Olivia might look like the butter won’t melt, but that’s precisely what makes her so menacing.”
