WILL THERE BE ANOTHER SERIES OF EUPHORIA?
Speaking to Variety about the role of Jules, Schafer said: ”There need to be more roles where trans people aren’t just dealing with being trans; they’re being trans while dealing with other issues.
“We’re so much more complex than just one identity.”
She added: “All the complications that come with being trans and queer simultaneously, as far as that being something the public is going to see: That’s really exciting to me because that story will be accessible. But what’s also exciting is that it’s not about that at all.”
Schafer is also well known for her LGBTQ+ activism.
In 2017, she successfully campaigned against a discriminatory bill in the state of North Carolina, known as the Bathroom Bill.

The bill was later partially repealed amid backlash and boycotts.
