Euphoria's New Star Kelvin Harrison Jr. Dishes on His Character for Season 2

Kelvin Harrison Jr. is joining the cast of Euphoria for the upcoming second season of the HBO series and he’s opening up about his character.

The 25-year-old actor is a rising star in Hollywood and has been gaining tons of acclaim for roles in movies like Luce, Waves, The Photograph, and the new musical comedy The High Note.

Kelvin told Variety that he hoped to be involved with the first season of Euphoria, but it didn’t work out with his schedule.

“It was something that we had talked about for a while, because I wanted to be on Season 1 and things didn’t really go that way,” he said. “Suddenly, all the stars aligned and I got to be there. We did our first couple table reads and they were amazing. And we did our camera test and costume fittings were underway, and sets were being built … we were ready to go. And then the pandemic hit; coronavirus said, ‘Sit down.’ But, it’s exciting and everyone is so wonderful on that show. The cast is so fun and sweet and smart and it’s going to be really special. I’m happy to be part of it.”

Kelvin told Teen Vogue that he’s “never seen a character like this, period.” He added, “I can almost argue that it has not been done. It’s interesting, it is definitely a character of the time, and that’s all I got. He’s interesting.”

The second season of Euphoria is on hold right now due to the pandemic, but we can’t wait to see it when the time is right!
