Storm Reid Reveals That Drake Plays A Significant Part In The Making Of ‘Euphoria’

Storm Reid spilled all the details.
If you didn't already know, Drake (AKA Aubrey Graham) serves as an executive producer on Euphoria.
And while he may not make an appearance, he is apparently quite involved in the making of the teen drama.
In an interview on The Kelly Clarkson Show, Euphoria actress Storm Reid, known for her role as Rue's baby sister Gia, revealed that the 35-year-old rapper has gotten his hands dirty in the process of creating the show. In fact, he even made sure he attended a table read for the latest second season.
"He's really involved," Reid told host Kelly Clarkson. "We were doing table reads for season two a couple of months back, and of course, like you're not expecting Drake to be at your table read.
"I pull up to the lot and he's there with all of his homies," Reid said, adding that Drake showed up with his business partner, Future the Prince, and they both sat through a three-hour-long table read.
"He was so involved and so in tune and you don't really expect that from a person," she continued. "I know that he's a brilliant businessman and creative, but I mean he's Drake. He doesn't really have to pay attention in the table read and he did."
But of course, Reid also noted that Drake's decision to become a producer for the show shouldn't come as a surprise since he previously found fame through acting, most notably while starring as Jimmy Brooks in Degrassi: The Next Generation from 2001 to 2009.

And while he used to be an actor who sat through table reads, Reid wanted to make sure that the "Hotline Bling" singer still paid attention through the event. And thankfully, she wasn't disappointed.
"He's so in tune, and of course I was kind of looking at him to see if he was actually paying attention and turning his pages, and you could tell he was feeling all the emotion," she said, adding, "I was like, 'OK, Drake.'"
From there, the A Wrinkle In Time star spoke about what it's been like to work on the show, which follows a group of high school students as they navigate the teenage experience, through sex, drugs, relationships and trauma.
"Euphoria is an incredible show that is depicting what young people are going through in this day and age, even though some of the content matter may be rough and it may be hard," she said.
Hours before the premiere of season two, Zendaya, who stars as Rue, took to Instagram to warn viewers that the upcoming episodes would feature "triggering" themes which may be harmful for some to watch.
"This season, maybe even more so than the last, is deeply emotional and deals with subject matter that can be triggering and difficult to watch," she wrote in her post.
"Please only watch it if you feel comfortable. Take care of yourself and know that either way you are still loved and I can still feel your support. All my love, Daya."
