When Martha Kelly was employed to play Laurie in Euphoria, she actually did not know what she was signing up for.
“I used to be actually scared to play Laurie as a result of I undoubtedly see the character as only a monster,” the Emmy nominee informed E! Information. “And I am a stand-up comedian, so if I am fortunate sufficient to get appearing jobs, I need them to be likable characters.”
However Laurie is the other of a likable character. She’s a drug vendor who will cease at nothing to make a revenue, even when it means hiring a young person to deal to excessive schoolers. She even drugged Rue (Zendaya) and locked her in a room, seemingly planning to make use of her for her achieve.
