The 20-year-old actress and model Hunter Schafer stars this summer opposite Zendaya in HBO’s sex-and-drugs-fueled high school drama Euphoria. Off camera, the Raleigh, North Carolina native is interested in fashion design and has devoted her time to fighting the state’s House Bill 2, which forces individuals to use bathrooms corresponding to the sex assigned to them at birth. “Dude, acting has been a trip. I had never really acted before, so I really didn’t know what I was doing. The casting director for Euphoria set me up with an acting coach in New York, and he completely flipped my world around. The way you learn to utilize your brain and your emotions really freaked me out. We did something called Effective Memorization, where you put yourself into a relaxed state so that you can walk through a place from your childhood—almost like time travel.”
