This is a story about an actor who cannot stop fangirling her costar. Storm Reid shared that she still has to “sometimes try to not fangirl” when she is around her Euphoria co-star Zendaya. Reid has been the Dune actor’s fan since her childhood and continues to be so after over a decade even when she portrays her onscreen sister.

The Last of Us star Reid met Zendaya almost 10 years earlier. Reid, then nine years old, went to a Ben & Jerry's in Los Angeles and requested the Disney show Shake It Up star for a picture. Only a few years afterward, they star together in HBO’s popular teen drama series Euphoria– one other as Georgia "Gia" Bennett (Reid) and Rue Bennett (Zendaya). They were seen singing Beyoncé songs together in the trailer.

This is not the first time the 20-year-old When They See Us actor has been all praises of her co-star. Previously, in an interview with People, Reid called Zendaya her “big sis” and mentioned sharing a close bond with Zendaya. “I always go to her for advice. She's always just super honest, super blunt, in the most loving, gentle way. But she's still gonna tell you how she feels. And I love that because I am a very blunt, straightforward person. Just cut around all of the extra fluff and, you know, get straight to the point,” she said.
