Although she did not win an Emmy award, fans have immense love for her and the character Cassie Howard whom she plays in Euphoria. Right after the first wave of the pandemic was over, this Everything Sucks star’s horror drama Nocturne was released. And that is when this 25-year-old actress revealed why she takes on the most challenging roles.
Who inspired Sydney Sweeney to take up challenging roles?
Sydney played the role of one of the twin sisters in the film Nocturne. Sweeney gave an interview to Hunger shortly after the film’s release, in which she mentioned that when she first read the script, she immediately thought of the 2010 film Black Swan. Moreover, she instantly thought of Natalie Portman, who played the lead role in that film. In fact, she also won the Academy Award for “Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role.”
The Handmaid’s Tale actress thought the story had vibes similar to the Oscar-winning film, as she is a massive fan of the film and Portman. “I think Natalie Portman’s incredible,” she said as she mentioned that she wanted to come out of the character of Cassie Howard. She wanted to do something different and found the role of Juliet a perfect match.
