HBO ‘Euphoria’ Cast Reacts To Joe Biden & Kamala Harris Election Win

Former Vice President Joe Biden and Senator Kamala Harris won the 2020 election, becoming the nation’s president-elect and vice president-elect. Americans across the United States voted in favor of Democrat Joe Biden as the 46th president, including the cast of HBO’s Euphoria.

Storm Reid, who plays Gia Bennett on the small screen, celebrated the “beautiful historic day,” posing in front of her TV while a CNN broadcast showed the two candidates addressing the nation.

Earlier in the week, the 17-year-old actress posted a black and white photo of politician Stacey Abrams. Abrams was the first Black woman in U.S. history to have won the gubernatorial nomination for one of the major parties. She was the 2018 Democratic gubernatorial candidate but lost the Georgia governor’s race by 55,000 votes. Reid applauded Abrams’s passion for Georgia and its citizens.

“I’ve had the honor and a privilege to share space and be in conversation with Ms. @StaceyAbrams,” the young activist wrote on Instagram. Reid ended the post expressing pride in her home state of Georgia, which is leaning blue for the first time since the 1992 election.

The Euphoria regular also posted about her family’s new multimedia production house. Reid is the crew, talent, executive producer, and CEO of A Seed & Wings Production. She, her sister Paris, and her mother Robyn Simpson launched the project together.

Reid’s fictional big sister Zendaya, aka Rue Bennett, quickly shared her feelings about incumbent President Donald Trump’s loss in the election. She kept it simple, posting two gifs, one of which responded to one of her own Tweets last week.

Maude Apatow was another familiar face from the teen-drama who showed her excitement about Mr. Biden’s win on social media. She first reposted her real-life sister’s Instagram photo on her story. The picture showed Iris Apatow waving the pride flag and holding a fan reading “born this gay.” Maude is Iris’s older sister, and their parents are of course actress Leslie Mann and film director Judd Apatow.

The 22-year-old actress was even more candid following the first post on her Instagram story. In a selfie, Apatow held up her drink in “cheers to democracy.”

This weekend was also Algee Smith’s birthday. The actor, who portrays Chris McKay in the award-winning series, turned 26 on Saturday, Nov. 7. Smith posted a couple of birthday selfies on his Instagram account, highlighting the fact that it is Scorpio season. The comment section was flooded with birthday wishes and blessings. AfterBuzz TV is wishing the star a happy belated birthday!

Fans finally saw Hunter Schafer (Jules Vaughn) active on her Instagram page after three weeks of silence. The actress and model posted an up-close photo of herself, followed by a swipe to another picture of needles, a necklace, and a ring. Schafer tagged another account titled Brooks AdaLioryn, in the photo. It’s likely that the jewelry from Schafer’s photo is from the individual or business behind @brooksadalioryn.

Soon after her selfie, the 20-year-old LGBTQ+ activist shared another one of her art sketches. Drawing is one of Schafer’s many talents and skills, which she regularly shows the world on her Instagram page.

There’s also some exciting news Euphoria fans and viewers can look forward to this week! According to sources, the official music video for Labrinth’s “Still Don’t Know My Name” comes out this Tuesday, Nov. 10. It might feel a little late for the release of a 2019 song’s music video, but who doesn’t need some extra glitter right now?!
