Euphoria star Jacob Elordi says he’s concerned his acting life will “hone my edges” and make it difficult for him to prepare for future roles.
The Australian actor, 25, said he’s afraid of adjusting to “a way of being” and losing the ability to “feel everything”.
Speaking to GQ, he revealed that when he first moved to Los Angeles, he slept on a friend’s sofa for two weeks and that his audition for the popular HBO show was to be his last before returning home.
“I didn’t book any jobs, I think I had – I don’t know, $400 or $800 left in my bank account,” he said.
“Euphoria was my last audition before I went home for a while to make some money and recover.”
“Euphoria,” which also stars Emmy-winning actress Zendaya and Emmy-nominated Sydney Sweeney, follows the recovery story of drug addict Rue.
The show ran for two series and received critical acclaim.
Discussing the impact of his success as part of the show, Elordi continued, “The fear (is that) of walking in Byron Bay, NSW at my home, (and) maybe one day it won’t last.” the same value to me because I sanded down all my edges.
“I have no taste anymore. I have no taste in life.

“I only know this one way of being that is smiling and waving and being graceful all the time and not feeling anything and always being the graceful one in a situation and always knowing what is right and always knowing how to handle myself have.”
