Elordi has starred in a few major projects, most notably Netflix’s “The Kissing Booth” films (via IMDb). However, “Euphoria” was truly his big break. It not only drastically changed the trajectory of his career but also his life in general.
The “Euphoria” star spoke with Collider about the “incredibly strange” life transformation he’s experienced in recent years, especially after he described being in a rough spot. “I was essentially homeless when I auditioned for it,” Elordi explained about the show. “I was at the end of my tether. Weirdly, everything came into place.”
Elordi explained that he and his co-stars were all going through times that echoed the “very classic Hollywood existence,” so he suspects the showrunners could sense their desperation to land roles on “Euphoria.” Now, he gets to work with Emmy-winning actors like Zendaya as well as fellow up-and-comers like Sweeney and Demie, all while expanding his entertainment profile.
Despite the rough beginnings, it ended up working out for the “Euphoria” cast as the critically-acclaimed series is breaking records and getting rave reviews from audiences (via Rotten Tomatoes). Season 2 of the HBO Max series is drawing to a close, but Elordi will surely have no problem using the show as a starting point for a very robust career in Hollywood.
