There are many topics she is being talked about but recently, there are reports of a toxic work environment on the set of ‘Euphoria’. HBO released a statement addressing the claims about hit series, “the well-being of cast and crew on our productions is always a top priority.”
HBO added, ‘Euphoria’ Season 2 was shot in “full compliance with all safety guidelines and guild protocols.” The full statement reads, “The well-being of cast and crew on our productions is always a top priority. The production was in full compliance with all safety guidelines and guild protocols. It’s not uncommon for drama series to have complex shoots. And COVID protocols add an additional layer. We maintain an open line of communication with all the guilds, including SAG-AFTRA. There were never any formal inquiries raised.”
The statement came out after the story published by The Daily Beast on Friday. The background actor claims to be mistreatment due to the demanding filming schedule of the movie, “Euphoria”. The reports stated, “multiple complaints were made to SAG-AFTRA overproduction failing to provide them meals on time. And refusing to let people use the bathroom.”
What has other media reported?
The Daily Beast reported that extras were not provided with a proper holding area between scenes and were offered “two space heaters” during cold evening shoots. “I understand that I’m doing background work,” one background actor told The Daily Beast.
“I’m not the most important person there, I know where I am on the totem pole. But it got to a point where I was like, I’m still a person, I’m still human. Please let me go to the restroom, don’t tell me I can’t go for 30 minutes. Or tell me I can’t get a snack when you’re not going to feed me and it’s 4 a.m. It just very much felt like we didn’t exist as people,” added the actor. Another extra said, “It was the most disorganized set that I’ve ever been a part of because I don’t think anybody knew what was going on.”
