Also a drug dealer Fez’s grandmother was the one who taught him everything she knew about drug dealing and they became business partners.

Despite his past and dealing with dangerous people, if there is something that has always captivated fans of Euphoria de Fez, it is that he is a good guy, who is always concerned about Rue’s well-being and does not seek conflict. However, Nate (Jacob Elordi), does not make things easy for him.

‘Euphoria’ ends the wait: When, how and where to see the episodes of season 2

This has been revealed by Angus Cloud himself in an interview with GQ in which he is delighted that his character has had his own episode of origins. “I was supposed to die in the first season”, responded to the publication when asked if Sam Levinson had promised him in the first installment that he would dedicate an episode to him. However, he does not know in which chapter or at what time it was scheduled to happen.

“I don’t know, but apparently, how they signed me off the street, I imagine [que el personaje de Fezco nunca estuvo previsto que se quedase]. I don’t even know how. I never saw that script. Nobody even told me,” Cloud explains doubtfully, who made his debut as an actor for the first time in Euphoria.

One day while we were shooting the pilot, Jacob [Elordi] He said, ‘Don’t you know?’ your character is [e imita como le disparan en la cabeza]’. And yes, it never happened. I think they liked what he did so they decided to leave me alive and let me continue

However, over the course of these more than two years between seasons, that has changed and he now has two films in the works.: is filming the Christmas police movie Your Lucky Day and it has been announced that he will be part of the cast of an adaptation of The Things They Carried by Tim O’Brien, starring Tom Hardy, Tye Sheridan and Pete Davidson.
