With the release of the second season of HBO MAX’s chart-topping show “Euphoria,” fans are excited to find more about the new additions to the star cast of the show. One of them is the actress who plays the role of Laurie, the chaotically calm drug dealer who deals with Fezco (played by Angus Cloud). Here’s everything you need to know about Laurie and the actress who plays her role in season two of the show.
WHO IS LAURIE IN EUPHORIA?
Laurie, who worked with Fez’s supplier Mouse before Ashtray killed him, appears in the first game of Season 2. Rue, Ashtray, and Fez pass by before heading to the New Year’s party. While they were there, Laurie’s goons made them undress to prove they weren’t wearing wires, and Fez had to explain Mouse’s sudden disappearance.
We also meet Laurie in the third episode of the season, when Rue runs out of drugs and decides she has nowhere else to look. In one of the most heinous steps she has ever taken, Rue proposes to Laurie a rabbit scheme, in which she will sell drugs to her various (thoughtful) high school friends and give Laurie a huge return on her investment. Laurie doesn’t ask too many questions and just gives Rue a $ 10,000 bag full of drugs.
