What is the age of who plays maddy in euphoria?
Usually, when it comes to portraying teenage characters, it's a good idea for actors to be the same age as their on-screen counterparts. But in the case of Euphoria, there's a 14-year age gap between Alexa Demie and her character of Maddy.
But, like her costars, Demie has nailed her on-screen portrayal of the bold 18-year-old cheerleader. From her YTK-channeled style to her glittery bold makeup, she's got a knack for playing the part of an irreverent teen.
As for what's next for the star, she recently appeared in Jonah Hill's directorial debut Mid90s as Estee and is currently filming a lead role in the new HBO series The Idol, which will be co-created by Euphoria creator Sam Levinson. The show is a dark drama that explores the experiences of young adults and has a similar vibe to Euphoria.
What other movies has she starred in?
Before landing the role of Maddy on Euphoria, Demie starred in the coming-of-age skate film Mid90s and had a small role in the drama TV series Ray Donovan. But, after she read the pilot for Euphoria, she knew it was the role for her. Her sharp sarcasm and toxic romantic relationship with Nate, as well as her unique past as a child beauty pageant winner, have gotten her critical acclaim. She's also a musician and designer with her own eyewear brand, Mainframe.
