Barbie Ferreira to leave ‘Euphoria’ before third season
Barbie Ferreira is graduating from “Euphoria” High.
The “Unpregnant” star, 25, took to Instagram Wednesday to share that she’s leaving her “Euphoria” role as Kat Hernandez, ahead of the HBO teen drama’s third season.
“After four years of getting to embody the most special and enigmatic character Kat, I’m having to say a very teary eyed goodbye,” said the “Nope” actress.
“I hope many of you could see yourself in her like I did and that she brought you joy to see her journey into the character she is today,” she continued. “I put all my care and love into her and I hope you guys could feel it. love you Katherine Hernandez.”
Ferreira played a prominent role in the show’s freshman season but in season two, which aired earlier this year, Kat’s presence was notably diminished.
That came amid reported tensions between the actress and the show’s controversial creator Sam Levinson.
Long hours and spontaneous changes to the high school series’ scripts are among the criticisms that have been levied at the “Malcolm & Marie” writer-director, 37.
