Euphoria star Maude Apatow shares her thoughts on why Lexi is so drawn towards Fezco and why they would make such a good couple in the series.
Euphoria’s Maude Apatow explains in an interview why she believes her character, Lexi, is drawn toward drug dealer Fezco (Angus Cloud) in this season’s potential romantic storyline. Originally premiering on HBO in June 2019, the series went on to become critically acclaimed by both audiences and critics alike, specifically praising its approach to topics like substance abuse, the performances of the cast, and the show’s writing. The series is currently airing its second season which premiered on January 9, 2022.
Euphoria follows an ensemble cast of teenagers in the fictional town of East Highland as they navigate the difficult waters of drugs, addiction, mental health, sex, love, and identity. Aside from Apatow and Cloud, Euphoria’s extremely talented cast includes Zendaya, Hunter Schafer, Alexa Demie, Sydney Sweeney, Jacob Elordi, Barbie Ferreira, Eric Dane, and Algee Smith. In the latest season, audiences have watched as Apatow and Cloud’s characters have gotten closer, seemingly painting a romance in the cards for the pair in the future.

In an interview with Collider, Apatow appeared alongside co-stars Sydney Sweeney and Alexa Demie and explained the reasons she thinks Lexi is so drawn to Fezco. Specifically, the actress explained how her character is so fascinated by Fez’s personality and situation, believing that he does not want this situation for himself and that the two share similar interests and beliefs deep down. Throughout the interview, the three actors all comment on the show’s latest episode and what is in store for their respective characters in the show’s future. Read Apatow’s comments below:
The thing that’s so interesting about Angus [Cloud]’s character is that he’s so sweet and he’s got such sweet eyes, but he’s also forced to be in this position. He doesn’t really want that for himself. He has so many other dreams and goals, and we see that through the season and learn about that in their conversations. I think she just finds him fascinating. She’s never met anyone like him, and vice versa. Deep down, they have really similar interests and make each other laugh. They’re just buddies, even though no one would see it coming. They just get along really well.
Feedback from fans about the relationship between Lexi and Fezco has been extremely positive, with many calling them the best couple the show has produced. However, past complaints have also been directed at the potential age gap between the two characters, with Fez being a high school dropout who is at least 20 years old and Lexi still a junior in high school. However, many have moved past this fact and are still all for the pair getting together eventually.
With the actors so passionate about this potential relationship, hopes for the pair to get together by the end of the season are at an all-time high. Furthermore, after Lexi and Fez’s bonding scene in episode 6, the show has proven that they have exceptional chemistry. Hopefully, the final episode of Euphoria season 2 will bring Lexi and Fez together when it airs on Sunday, February 27.
