Sydney Sweeney revealed that she "didn't prepare" her dad for her role on HBO's "Euphoria."
On "Sunday Today With Willie Geist," Sweeney also said her dad and grandpa "walked out" after seeing the show.
The third season of "Euphoria" is expected to air in 2025.
In a preview for an upcoming interview on NBC's "Sunday Today With Willie Geist," Sweeney revealed what she told her family about the role before the show aired.
"My mom visited me on set at the time, so she knew the story and I talked to her a lot about it — my dad didn't," Sweeney told Geist. "Yeah, I didn't prepare my dad. At all."
In "Euphoria," Sweeney plays popular high schooler Cassie Howard. The show follows a group of students as they navigate drugs, sex, and adolescence. Her costars include Zendaya, Jacob Elordi, and Alexa Demie.
"I mean, how do you bring it up in conversation? And also, when I talk to my dad, it's usually not about work," Sweeney said. "We talk, like, father-daughter conversations. He decided he was going to watch it, without telling me, with his parents."
"My dad and my grandpa turned it off and walked out," Sweeney continued.
Despite their negative reactions, Sweeney's grandmother had a different point-of-view.
"She's a big fan of mine. Actually I bring her, usually, all over the world to my different sets and I make her an extra," Sweeney said in the interview.
The show, created by Sam Levinson, premiered its second season in January 2022, and the third has been pushed back amid the writers' strike, HBO executive Francesca Orsi told Deadline in May.
"Euphoria" aside, Sweeney is currently promoting her latest HBO project, "Reality," a true story about an NSA translator who was jailed for releasing information to the media about Russian election interference in 2016.
